Directions:

1 pkg. McCormick skillet sauce.
1 tbsp. vegetable oil.
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips.
4 cups cut-up vegetables for stir fry.

Prep time: 10 min.
Cook time: 15 min.

Heat oil in skillet on high heat. 
Add chicken; cook and stir 5 minutes.
Add vegetables; cook and stir on medium-high heat 3 minutes or until tender-crisp and chicken is cooked through.
Stir in sauce. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 minute or until heated through.
Serve with cooked rice, if desired.

Makes 5 servings.

Results:

We used frozen stir-fry vegetables with chicken tenders and the sauce mix and loved the results! It was incredibly easy to make and the directions were very clear. 

The sauce tasted a little more processed than I would have liked, but nothing overpowering or unpleasant.

I think this would make for very small portions for five people, but other than that my family was pleased and there were no leftovers. 

I don't think this will become a mainstay, but can see myself keeping a few pouches in my pantry for the nights I don't feel like cooking.

Waffles mug from Tiny Prints


Tiny Prints mug
As you can see by the mug tree in the background, I don't really need another mug. We got rid of over half of our mugs when we moved, but how could I resist when Tiny Prints offered me a free personalized mug if I just paid shipping?

Love how the mug turned out! Pretty picture of Waffles in her orange bandanna on one side...

...and her glamour shot on the other side! 

The bottom of the mug has a Shutterfly stamp on it, so I guess that Tiny Prints has partnered with them. Very sturdy mug, and the pictures turned out beautifully! I loved the notepads I ordered from them, but have to say that the mug is my favorite!

Two coats of Tina nail polish by Julep. Described as a purple lilac shimmer, I really love how this one looks! And it didn't chip for a couple of days either, which is awesome!

Birchbox - May 2015

Birchbox - May 2015

Birchbox is a monthly beauty subscription where you receive a mix of beauty products (samples and full size). At only $10 per month, it's one of my favorite beauty boxes and a great deal! I gave myself a gift subscription so received the Welcome Box this month.

Birchbox - May 2015

Really love how opening your box is like opening a present, complete with tissue paper!

Birchbox - May 2015

My Welcome Box included COOLA SPF unscented matte tint moisturizer, Anastasia Beverly Hills clear brow gel, theBalm Stainiac lip tint, Beauty Protector Protect & Oil hair oil, and Whish coconut shaving cream. I'm not a big fan of hair oil or brow gel, but like the rest of the items. I had unsubscribed a few months back, but had enough points left over for a gift subscription so decided to sign up again under my secondary account. Fingers crossed next month's box is worth it!
