Asian Chicken Salad and Fly on the Wall...June

Welcome to a Fly on the Wall group post. Today 14 bloggers are inviting you to catch a glimpse of what you’d see if you were a fly on the wall in our homes. Come on in and buzz around my house.
Buzz around, see what you think, then click on these links for a peek into some other homes:                                                                                                                            

I have my Daddy on my mind, so my post may be a little different. Here are some of his Jeffisim's. Daddy talk :)
I apologize now if they are offensive. He was rough around the edges but mellowed with age.
  • It's raining so hard it sounds like a cow peeing on a flat rock.
  • It's colder than a witches tiddy.
  • How are you? His reply "fat and sassy"
  • When I was in a bad mood "who peed in your cornflakes"
  • It's so hot outside the birds are using potholders to pick up worms.
  • I'm ready teet (meaning he wanted food)
  • That meats tougher n' shoe leather.
  • Gimme just a dribble (this meant a half glass)
  • Just a dab (normal portion)
  • I'm tireder than a one legged man in an @$$ kicking contest.
  • Daddy, you tired? "Naw just checking the back of my eyelids for holes" 

One night at supper, my husband said, "pass me a leg" (we were eating fried chicken) and before I could pass the bowl, our oldest son (6 months at the time) pulled his leg out from under the high chair tray and held it up in the air. We cracked up!

Driving home from our anniversary supper about 11 years ago, our youngest says from the back seat "I just jumped off the edge of fullness"

When the boys were little one asked me "what's normal?" My response was the same then that it is now : Normal is just a setting on the dryer. Everyone is a little whacked.

Driving down the road last week, from the backseat, my grand daughter says "I'm gonna have a brother baby and I'm gonna hold him and rock him and say awww you so koot" I said, a baby brother, she says NO A brother baby!

Now how about a recipe?

Asian Chicken salad

4 chicken thighs
romaine lettuce
cucumbers, thinly sliced
rice noodles
mandarin oranges
snow pea pods
Asian ginger soy dressing

Prepare your chicken, fried, grilled, sauteed however. Slice and serve over a bed of romaine lettuce with thinly sliced cucumbers, crunchy rice noodles, orange slices/segments and a dressing. you can use store bought or make your own.
I cooked my chicken, cut into strips, in a little oil with white cooking wine with lemon, 2 TBSP of soy sauce and fresh cracked black pepper. I allowed this to cook until the chicken was done and caramelized.

2 TBSP raw wild flower honey
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp soy sauce
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar, white
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp ginger 
Whisk together and store in the fridge for up to a week in an air tight container.
