If you are a Mom, I'm sure you are constantly inundated with the age old question, "What's for dinner?" and if you are like me, then you probably have no idea. I am a "well meaning" menu planner, meaning, I like to plan my meals 2 weeks at a time, so I'll know how much of what I will need to buy.
I let the kids go through my recipes and pick ten-ish recipes and I write down the ingredients and purchase accordingly, which sounds great, then it comes time to prepare the meals every night and I totally forget to refer back to my original meal plan and I end up just winging it, which works for me, as I am not all organized and Martha Stewarty and stuff.
I'm a real Mom, with real kids and a real "blog from home" job and I mean well when I make my menus up, but sometime life gets in the way and I end up making chicken Tetrazzini on Monday instead of when it was scheduled for Friday. Nevertheless, I actually enjoy cooking, but I don't like to be stuck in the kitchen forever, so anything that will save me a few minutes, while still being delicious and healthy-ish, is a huge score in my book.
"With a glorious history of 125 years, Lee Kum Kee has become a household name as an ethnic Chinese enterprise as well as an international brand and a symbol of quality and trust. As a century-old ethnic enterprise, Lee Kum Kee substantiates its core value of "considering others’ interests” in every aspect of its business operations. Lee Kum Kee has also lived by the principles of “pragmatism, integrity and constant entrepreneurship”. The Company has two missions – one is “promoting Chinese cuisines worldwide” and the other is “modernizing and promoting traditional Chinese herbal health products to the people around the world”.
When I was recently given the opportunity to check out somenew products from Lee Kum Kee, I immediately looked to see if they had any MSG and I was pleasantly surprised to learn these new sauces have no added MSG as well as no trans fats or preservatives, which is a big deal for me, as Midlife Dad and I are both highly sensitive to MSG. Lee Kum Kee is widely known, worldwide for quality ethnic Chinese products that are available at your local grocery store or online.
The first sauce I tried was the Kung Pao chicken and it was super easy to prepare. All I had to do was chop up a few green onions and a couple of carrots, brown the chicken in the skillet, add the sauce and simmer. Easy peasy and the taste was amazing. I wouldn't normally order Kung Pao chicken, but I might from now on. This had just the right amount of spice and paired perfectly with some peanut noodles I had in the cabinet, but you could also use Ramen noodles minus the flavoring pack. I have four Lee Kum Kee sauces left to try, lettuce wrap, Mongolian beef, Orange chicken and broccoli beef and I can't wait to see if they are as good as the Kung Pao chicken. I will be posting one recipe a week, so keep your eyes peeled.
