Success in the kitchen!

It is SO rare that I cook something that is both delicious and healthy, that I actually had to blog about it! Yesterday for dinner I used our wonderful Alaskan ULU knife/board
to make some good chicken stir fry. I got this as a present from my parents a while back and it is wonderful. I highly recommend it to anyone who cooks anything! So, the next time it is your birthday and someone asks you what you want, say, "An Alaskan ULU knife". You'll thank me, I promise. I cut up some broccoli, zucchini, and asparagus that I had in the fridge from our Bountiful Baskets produce co-op that we get every other week. I also cut up some chicken. Then, I cooked them all together with olive oil, some garlic pepper (thanks Susan), a sprig of Rosemary from my front yard that I crushed up, and the juice of lemon from our back yard (aren't I resourceful!). It really was tasty and healthy too!

Well, I'll leave with a few more funny things Josh the Honest has said lately. We were eating dinner and he said, "Do you know what I wish was never invented?" "What?" I asked. "Soup," he replied, so matter-of-factly. We weren't even having soup.

At FHE, we were discussing happiness and things that make us happy long-term versus short-term, so I asked the kids "What are some things that make you happy?" Eden says: "Friends, Family". Teya: "Candy". Josh: "Going to bed without any underwear on".

Oh to live in that head for a day -- what an adventure! He just brought home a stellar report card, though -- all 'exceeds expectations' in ALL areas. I guess we'll keep him!

I LOVE my ULU knife and use it nearly every day. I wish that I were a rich friend, then I would buy them for everyone for their b-days.
Josh cracks me up.

I am very impressed by your kitchen prowess... I don't know that I have ever uttered the phrase "success in the kitchen". Hmmm... something new to strive for. :) Josh, always saying what the rest of us are thinking. Gotta love it!!!

I'll have to check out the knife. Anything that makes cooking dinner night after night a little easier or new at least, I'm all for. Your stir fry sounds yummy. Your kid is hilarious. I'm glad you keep sharing his quotes. I have a friend who once asked their 4 year old to say family prayer and he replied, "I'm trying to cut back."

I haven't had breakfast yet and I'm all ready for the dinner you prepared! It sounds delicious, specially because I love chicken.
Your Josh must be fun to be around. You could have a special section on your blog - Josh's quote book or something? And I'll remember what to ask for as a birthday present:-)

Josh is always good for a laugh, and I'm always better for having laughed, so thanks! (But you did make me feel a little guilty that I don't use my Ulu knife as much as I should.)

Thanks for reporting on your happy success with the ULU. Glad you are enjoying it. I find I use mine multiple times every day. Be sure to keep the wooden handle and the chopping bowl/block oiled ocassionally.
