I'm Back!! Light Sesame Chicken Stir Fry

Well hello there old friends!  I can't believe it's been so long since I've blogged! I guess a break-up, a cross country move (to a much nicer climate, might I add!), a new job, the passing of my dear grandfather and many other life events take precedence.

Despite all of this, I am finally back!  Although I have not been blogging, I HAVE been cooking and I have so many great things to share with you guys!  Please let me know if you have any suggestions as well.

Since I could not decide what recipe to share first, I figured I would just write about what I concocted today.  I know it's the easy way out.  So what.

I wanted to make something light that would provide me with leftovers for lunch tomorrow.  I decided on a Sesame Chicken Stir-Fry.  I ended up using up a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables but fresh veggies  are even better.  It was light but had a ton of flavor and would be great over rice as well.  I opted to eat it without.

Next time I make this, I may attempt to do so in the Crock-Pot!
