Posted Nov 12 2010 1:17pm

Good afternoon! It’s a beautiful one here in NC :)

And guess what? Matt is here AND we’re actually staying in town this weekend! Crazy talk. I’m excited :) Especially because I’m going out of town AGAIN on Wednesday! Any guesses where I’m going? Hint: I was there in January… but not for the same reason ;)

So – before I get to my fun lunch recipe – would you like to know who won my Quaker Amazing Morning Kit giveaway ? This was my most popular giveaway yet, with a whopping 474 comments! I loved reading how all of you take care of yourselves in the morning. I might need to steal some of your ideas – especially starting the day with some stretching! :)

The winner is…

Commenter #158, April !

Yum! Green smoothies (especially my Banana & Spinach Smoothie ) make my mornings better, too :) Congrats, April – please email your name and address to me at anne @ fannetasticfood.com and Quaker will send your package on its way! 003

Thank you to everyone who entered :)

Anyway! I was craving Thai for lunch and since Matt is around (he gets back from DC on Thursday night and works from home on Fridays) I was more motivated than usual to cook something more involved :)

Yum.

My old friend Fish Sauce came back out to play for today’s creation – remember when I bought it at an Asian grocery store for my Project Food Blog Challenge #2 entry, Fresh Thai Summer Rolls ? Those were so good. Fish sauce kind of grosses me out but it sure does taste good in recipes.

Thai Chili Garlic Chicken with Veggies and Brown Rice

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup liquid honey
  • 2 Tbsp. fish sauce (pictured above – don’t worry the other side of the label says “fish sauce”!)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. chili garlic sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Sliced veggies (bok choy, green beans, squash, peppers, etc.)
  • 1 package of chicken breasts

Instructions:

1) Mix all the ingredients except for the chicken together in a medium sized bowl. Slice the chicken into bite sized pieces and place it in the bowl to marinate while you prepare the veggies.

2) Cut your veggies (I just used bok choy but a mix would have been more fun).

3) Place the chicken, marinade and all, in a pan and cook over medium high heat until chicken mostly cooked.

4) Add in your veggies and sauté until they are cooked to your liking and chicken is fully cooked.

5) Plate and enjoy!

I love the base of the bok choy – it looks like a flower :)

Matt added extra chili garlic sauce to his, because he’s obsessed with spicy food. Boys.

Dessert was some of these amaaaaazing enormous and juicy grapes I got from the co-op near where we live. Yum!!

And now – I’m off to rejoice, because after FAILING the stupid NC written drivers test on Wednesday (the questions were SO random and oddly worded) – I took a few practice tests this morning and was able to pass it this afternoon, no problem! Go me :) My new license picture was cute, too – I’ll show you guys when my official new NC license arrives in 10 days or so.

Have a wonderful night!
