|Chicken Breast with Hoisin and Peanut Butter Sauce|
Last night, I took the meat off one and a half chicken breast halves and sliced it up, then, sauteed it, with some finely minced onions, in a little sesame oil mixed with regular vegetable oil until cooked. In the meantime, daughter mixed up half a cup of bottled hoisin sauce, half a cup of creamy peanut butter, about two teaspoons of freshly grated ginger, and a little dried chili flakes into a sauce. When the chicken was cooked, I added the sauce and cooked it until the sauce bubbled and thickened, almost caramelizing. We had some of that for dinner with freshly cooked rice. My daughter loves this sauce.
In the meantime, I baked the rest of the chicken breast halves in the oven - there were two full halves plus the two from which I cut off the meat. They are in the fridge for future meals (might freeze one of the full breast halves). Having the oven on to bake them warmed up the house, nicely, too.
Today was a sunny and warmer day. At least, the afternoon was warm and the house warmed up to 70F inside!
I had a scrambled egg and a slice of toast for brunch, around noon, with a glass of diluted apple juice.
Spent the afternoon outside, in the back yard (it was warmer outside than inside!) reading. Bun Bun slipped in from under the gate and enjoyed snacking on the sweet potato vines, among other things! He spent the entire afternoon and most of the evening in the back yard, because I didn't go chasing after him. He even joined the garden cats for dinner:

- Chatting with family and friends
- Being able to afford to choose curbside pick up
