Notes

Here is the explanation I posted to my BBS (The Polka Dot Cottage) on August 4, 1996:

Friday night, at around 11:30, Neil and I packed a bag, hopped in the car, and went to his parents’ Long Beach Island house. They weren’t going down until Saturday night, so we had a nice day to ourselves. Anyway, I decided I was in the mood to cook supper Saturday night for the 2 of us, so I took a quick trip to Shop Rite, and grabbed some chicken, an orange pepper (’cause it was cool-looking) and some scallions. Then I scrounged around the kitchen for the rest of the ingredients. I followed my usual chicken routine, but the flavors were quite different than usual – and very good! I will definitely be making this again sometime.

And I have. Many many times.

  1. Hey Lisa…is the first line of the directions a oops? I didn’t see any pumpkin, sugar, or oil in the ingredient list.

    I love making concoctions like this. I am going to give yours a try soon.

    1. Oh, duh. Yes, that line was from my pumpkin bread recipe. It’s fixed now. Thanks for pointing that out 🙂

  2. any time gf. btw…did I mention I love my scarf?? I wear it in the am when it is cold 🙂

    1. I’m so glad you like it! I’m really enamored with the color scheme and as soon as I can justify it, I’m going to sit down and crank out a couple more. Really, they’re all cut out, buttons sewn on, etc. All I need to do is the machine sewing and they’re done. I’m *almost* talking myself into doing it right this very minute…
