I am so pleased at how many of you enjoyed the epic photos in my last post about our camping trip to a high mountain wilderness camping spot in the Cascade Mountain range! Thank you for all the wonderful comments - I enjoyed them immensely!! We've been recuperating from the trip, and unfortunately we contracted a cold/flu virus and came down with it the evening of our return. So, we've been puttering around, emptying the trailer and tidying up home and just relaxing and trying to get over this illness. Today I went out to walk the dog and took my camera as I'd seen a Begonia in bloom that hubby has nursed through 2 winters, along with many geraniums. This is what I found...
And here is my son, Travis, with our two precious grandsons. They were playing around the farm and got good and dirty, but they had a ball. They're enjoying our swing on the front porch. I want to thank my son and his wife for taking care of our chickens, watering our plants inside and out and coming in to pet our cat, Lucy, while we were away.

Teresa & Dayle's Chicken Yakisoba
Yakisoba Noodles (the ones we buy are pre-cooked)
Your favorite Teriyaki Cooking Sauce
skinless, boneless chicken thighs
lots of fresh veggies such as:
pea pods, cabbage, onions, carrots, fresh mushrooms, broccoli, celery, cauliflower or any favorite veggie.
Simmer chicken thighs in frying pan in teriyaki sauce until cooked through-15 minutes or so.
After chicken is half cooked, start stir frying veggies in oil on high heat. When veggies are about done, pull apart the yakisoba noodles and put in with the veggies and sprinkle the teriyaki sauce over the noodles and stir fry them with the veggies.
When chicken is done, remove from the pan and slice in 1/2 inch slices, toss into the veggie/noodle mix. Drizzle the sauce in the chicken pan over the veggie/noodle/chicken mix and VOILA.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
