DELIGHTFUL DINING: Show and Tell
Each member of the family packs an item in a backpack, or tote, or other "school" bag. Be prepared to share the history or a story about that item to the other family members at the table. It can be a picture, an heirloom, book, toy, etc. Take turns sharing.
- Do you know anyone who can speak a second language? If you could speak a second language (or a third), which language would you like to speak? Why?
- What was your very favorite part of summer? What are you looking forward to when school starts?
- What do you hope to learn this year in school?
FLAVORFUL FAVORITES: Easy Chicken Lettuce Wraps
These are so delicious and perfect for busy weeknights. These won't disappoint. I love P.F. Chang's Lettuce Wraps but they're expensive and I rarely eat out. I love making my own version at home.
1 can water chestnuts, diced
3 green onions, diced
1/2 pkg. fresh mushrooms, diced
1 chicken breast, cooked and diced
Trader Joe's Soyaki teriyaki sauce (add to liking)
1 head butter lettuce, washed
In a skillet, combine water chestnuts, green onions, mushrooms, chicken and Soyaki. Cook until hot and mushrooms are cooked through.
Serve with washed butter lettuce leaves.
