1. That looks so yummy! We love chicken & teriyaki in our house, so I’m going to have to try this one! Thanks for sharing and happy friday!

  2. When I started my search for optimal nutrition I started with clean eating and this was one of my favorite magazines.

    Sidenote. I’m 99% sure I’m going to start P90X again next week! Doing that 90 days was when I was the happiest with my cross training and most pleased by the results. What have you been doing for strength training?

    1. Weird…I had never even noticed this magazine before. After my first issue, I fell in total love and subscribed. And that’s sayin’ something because I am a magazine minimalist.

      P90X is awesome. I actually felt my best during and after X2. For the last few months, I’ve been doing a mixture of P90X, X2 and TurboFire. But I have not been nearly as committed as I’d like, probably only doing 4-5 days per week, and some of those days not the full workout. Partly because I also did 2 cleanses during that time and it’s so exhausting to cleanse. Partly because the schedule I wrote out for myself included all the TurboFire workouts, and I realized after about 3 days that I didn’t like most of them! Partly because when the weather gets nicer, I’d much rather be outside than in my basement strength training (and unlike you, I don’t do double workouts) And partly because I’m getting bored with the same Tony Horton workouts and find myself lip syncing to all his jokes. True story.

      That said, I am not sure what I’m doing next. I am neither thrilled nor disgusted at my fitness level right now. It’s just okay. I haven’t pushed very hard, simply maintained.

      I’m sort of okay with that. Sort of want to get back to that place where I can easily crank out 30 push-ups or run a few miles and not be fatigued and sore the next day. But the other part of me likes a little reprieve from the constant striving for better–even against myself.

  3. Sandy, I love that you can write about a recipe and still entertain me. How do you do it!?!?! You should be on TV. Then I could PVR you everyday just like Rachael Ray. I love her. She’s my girl crush.
    This looks yummy. And my picky family would totally eat it. Except they would want vermicelli. Which would also be yummy I think.
    What is the world crazy weird grocery store do you shop at that you couldn’t find baby corn?!?!?!?! That is so bizarre! Depending on the store I find it near the canned corn (often on the top or bottom shelf) or usually in the Asian Foods section. Next to the water chestnuts and bamboo shoots. mmmm water chestnuts would be good in this too… But I have never ever not been able to find the corn.
    Oh and another P90X side note….my FB comment is already coming to bite me. My friend Amanda joined me at my workout yesterday. We did Tabata training. So Hard. Afterward (all sweating and groaning about her legs and hips hurting already) she looked me in the eye and said “You could TOTALLY do P90X. Totally” I guess maybe I should try it sometime. Maybe I know someone I could order it from….. It’s pricy, but cheaper than personal training at the gym….. 🙂
    Anyway – Love ya. Have a great weekend.

    1. I would love to have a cooking show. Except I can’t talk and do ANYTHING else. So I would be all–“Wait…I have to measure this….hold on….shoot! I forgot to set the timer!!! Did I add the salt yet? Does anyone know IF I ADDED THE FREAKING SALT???”

      And I would suck.

      Yes, you could totally do P90X. Anyone can. You can adapt it to any fitness level. Truly. People do it every day. And yes…much, much cheaper than a trainer.

      I can hook you up.

      And yes…the baby corn. What the heck?? I looked in all those places, plus frozen foods. We have a very extensive grocery store here. They sell everything. I don’t know. A baby corn shortage, maybe. Or I am blind. Probably the latter.

  4. I think I will make this. The rice wine, I have that already. We have a Chinatown in Chicago and that’s where I picked it up. I wonder what you can substitute for tapioca starch? I would hate to buy it and never use it.
