Also the 150th post. =)

I went to Steve's on Sunday night and cooked dinner for us. Stir fry sounded good and so did the monotony of chopping peppers and onions (it was a long day). This recipe is so easy and so good. I chop one each red, green, yellow and orange bell peppers and about half a large onion. Saute the onion in oil, then add peppers and simmer until slightly tender. Add stir fry sauce (I believe it's sold with the soy sauce in grocery stores) and chicken (I use seasoned chicken) and cook until peppers are tender and mixture starts to get juicy. Serve over rice.

Oven Mitt Boy!
Jordan and I also made homemade play-doh for the first time. Moms, try this recipe, it's super easy and makes play-doh with a great consistency.
In a saucepan, mix:
1 C flour
1/2 C salt
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 C water
1 Tbs vegetable oil
Desired food coloring
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture forms a ball (only a couple of minutes). Turn out onto counter or hard surface and let cool a few minutes, then knead until smooth. This dough doesn't stick to your hands (unless you don't cook it long enough), is (apparently) edible and should be refrigerated when not in use. I'll let you know how long it lasts. The actual stove cooking time is so short that this is pretty kid-friendly. At worst, have your child step aside while you stir for a couple of minutes.

The first batch was so fun that we made a second. We did red first, although Jordan was convinced it was pink, and he chose purple as the second color because that meant we got to use red and blue.
