Recipe: Easy Vegetarian Crockpot Stir Fry

Well I guess posting a recipe yesterday got me all into it… cause here is another one!

Easy Vegetarian (Or With Chicken) Crockpot Stir Fry
This recipe worked really well for me to make half the crockpot with chicken for my husband and the other half without for me.

• 2 bags of frozen “Harvest” Stir Fry veggies (ie baby corn, snap peas, carrots, onions, water chestnuts, broccoli, etc)
• Teriyaki Sauce or Marinade (soy sauce would probably work also)
• (optional) 1-2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts cut into one-inch cubes
• 1 Tablespoon of vegetable or olive oil

1) Pour oil into crockpot and, holding onto the handles, tilt the crockpot back and forth until the oil has spread all over the bottom.

2) If making the stir fry with chicken, arrange the cubed chicken along the bottom of the crockpot. If making half-chicken, arrange the chicken only on one half.

3) Pour a bag of frozen vegetables on the non-chicken side, and then pour the other bag on top of the chicken.

4) Sprinkle teriyaki sauce to taste all over the top of the veggies.

5) Turn on the crockpot to High for 4 hours (this is what I did) or on Low for 8 hours (in theory).

6) After cooking is complete, allow to cool for 5-10 minutes and then serve over rice if desired (or just like it is without rice if you are not eating grains… this is how I had it tonight and it was still very yummy!)

Sorry… no photo… I was too hungry to wait!

Day Seventy-Two: Voluntary Amnesia

And yet again, I was inspired by something that my pastor said in church on Sunday. I was looking through the verses that he shared in his sermon series American Jesus, and here was one of them…

For while I was with you, I made up my mind to forget everything except Jesus Christ and his death on the cross.
1 Corinthians 2:2

It ties in a bit with what I was discussing yesterday… about my mind starting to transcend out of the pit of food addictions into thinking about Jesus Christ. And I think that this is almost like a goal verse for me… I want to forget everything except Jesus Christ and his death on the cross. I want that to almost be a watermark in my vision of the way I view the world… I want Him, His Death, and His coming back to Life being at the forefront of my mind all. the. time.

And ya know, when you think about things in that light, a chocolateless life is… no biggie. It’s forgotten. A pastaless life… who cares?

Because I am making up my mind right now to forget everything except Jesus and His death.

(And that’s why this post is so short… I have forgotten everything else. Haha! Just kidding. But it is short because that verse is so succinct and I just didn’t have anything else to add!)
