Orange Chicken Lettuce Wraps

There are times in one’s life that there is a sense of peace and calm about everything. This is not one of those times for me.

From car trouble, to buying a house, almost losing said house, and my sweet Auntie L was in the hospital with a serious infection {she is home now!}.  Needless to say, we are still living in my in laws basement until we close on our house, my brother and sister-in-law just had a baby which resulted in my spoiling my nieces and nephew rotten and I’m currently surviving on an hour of sleep.  My sugar high came crashing down long ago and I have retyped “surviving” about 13 times because I’m not sure I’m spelling it right.  And apparently I don’t trust spell check either.

Am I rambling!? *twitch twitch*  And can you tell I have a lot on my mind?

I can’t complain.  Good things are happening.  It’s been a bit chaotic and piling life changing decisions doesn’t help but I can see a light at the end of this blessed hardship.

My house is ahmazing.  I am in love with it and, at the risk of jinxing this whole process, here is a sneak peek…keep in mind that is not my furniture but I will duplicate it as best as I can since I think the homeowners have the best sense of style evah.  We also have a pergola.  Seriously.  Outdoor living in style.  I.Am.Stoked.  Pray for a speedy and very smooth couple weeks until we close.


The other fun and good news was I was able to appear on a local tv program, Daily Dish, to whip up an easy and low carb meal perfect for summer.  And the occasional chaotic period in your life.

Make sure you head on over to get the recipe and if you really wanna watch me whip it up I won’t stop you.  Just keep in mine one word…chaos.

    Do you have this recipe somewhere on your site that I can print? Sounds delicious.

    • Thanks Angela! I actually created it specifically for that show. Hopefully you can copy and paste into a word document or pdf then print it. I hope you like it!
