Easy Orange Chicken at Home

I love Orange Chicken. For years we could only get a good version as take-out. We tried lots of recipes and tried even some of the really extensive ones with lots of ingredients and more steps than I will ever care to do. Then we stumbled on this awesome version.

Everyone who’s tried it agrees it’s the best they’ve ever had.  Turns out it’s the easiest with just 3 ingredients. We usually double this recipe so we can freeze half. Makes a great freezer meal to heat and eat. You can add veggies to freezer mix or make separate. (We like it better than Panda Express.)

Hot! Hot! Hot!

The dog days of summer must be here. It’s so hot here we try to stay indoors as much as possible. We live in northwest Florida and it’s been hitting temps here of 110 degrees. So here are some cool, refreshing meal ideas.

With the 4th of July over I just have to mention something. It was missed at the event in DC. The Blue Angel’s are from right here in Pensacola, Florida. We take great pride in our World famous Blue Angels. Their home base is NAS Pensacola.

While it may be warm here we have some of the highest rated beaches. When planning your next vacation or getaway, this is a fantastic place to have some fun. Steeped in history, with our eye on the future, our beaches compete with shopping, shows, art, food, music and fun.

The Ultimate Family Sandwhich

The Ultimate Family Sandwhich

French bread, or something called Everything bread, salami, provolone, sharp cheddar, Turkey, ham, roast beef, fresh spinach leaves or lettuce, tomatoes, onion, green bell peppers, homemade tazziki and a little mustard gives you the masterpiece you see here.

Best of all they are customized to taste. Pepperoni, corned beef, chicken, tuna, change the meats, cheese, bread and veggies. Make it your own and I bet it tastes better fresh than from a sandwich shop. We cut it three ways and made two meals so dinner and lunch tomorrow. These were so good! I admit it freely, it tasted better than most sandwich shops.
