Your New Fast Food

The crazy of being a single mom with two jobs and three teenagers is in full swing!  If you find yourself in similar circumstances, let me suggest two very fast meals to put on the table in 30 minutes or less (depending on how adept you are at working under pressure).

Pork Salad
shredded lettuce
pulled pork (we had pork roast on Sunday, remember?)
fresh cilantro
tomatoes (we have both red and yellow)

Paleo Thai "Noodles"
2 chicken breasts, cut up
kosher salt
sesame seeds
1/4 c. creamy almond butter
juice from one large orange
2 T. balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
shredded zucchini
1 green onion, chopped
1 orange, peeled and cut into bite-size pieces

Stir fry chicken with salt, cumin and sesame seeds while setting a pot of water to boil.  Remove chicken from pan and turn down the heat to low.  Drop the shredded zucchini in the boiling water, turn off the heat and let it sit while you make the sauce.  In the warm chicken pan, stir together almond butter, orange juice, balsamic vinegar and garlic.  Stir over low heat until smooth.  Drain zucchini.

Serve by making a bed of zucchini, the place chicken and orange pieces on top, drizzle sauce.  Garnish with green onion.


And I must say, you are a quiet bunch, my dear readers.  Feel free to comment anytime!  I'd love to hear your input!
