Minimalism with Kids

In the past 12 months or so, I have been on a mission to declutter our home. I have long aspired to lớn have a minimalist home (I blame Pinterest) but I always felt that minimalism was incompatible with raising children.

Even if I aspired to a home filled with monochromatic và Nordic-designed wooden toys, there is no avoiding the many multi-coloured, multi-tiered Lego constructions which my son likes lớn build & display (in perpetuity), nor the noisy and brightly coloured plastic toys which come into our home by way of gifts from friends và family (and which our children totally love).

But upon realising that I felt burdened by all of our possessions, most of which we don’t use anyway, I thought the least we could try was lớn rid our home of things we no longer used và loved.

It is a massive effort which I realise is not something you can achieve over a long weekend, but is rather an ongoing & daily process.

Cooking Magazine Addiction

My current project is going through all of my cooking magazines which have accumulated over the past decade and occupy more valuable real estate than they deserve.

There is something quite satisfying about flicking through an old magazine, removing a few pages of interesting recipes, và then discarding what is mostly a bundle of advertising.

Many years ago, a reader suggested on my Facebook page that one good way khổng lồ store recipes torn from magazines is to lớn laminate them. It is quite an ingenious, but simple, idea, especially since it gives some structure lớn flimsy magazine paper, but it also protects the recipe from splashes và accidents in the kitchen!

Satay Chicken Stir-Fry

As I was going through some of my old recipes which I had eagerly laminated when I first bought the machine some 5 years ago, I came across a recipe for Satay Chicken Stir Fry, a dish which my mother and I loved to order whenever we went khổng lồ a Chinese restaurant. Actually, she loved to order satay beef, but chicken was always my favourite.

Satay Chicken Stir Fry was one of my favourite recipes to lớn make at home during my years as a student, especially since it is a one-pan dish và this was the only kind of recipe my two-burner stove could accommodate.

And like most students, I also had a thing for instant noodles và loved eating this dish with instant curly ramen noodles.

Satay Chicken Recipe

I have since tweaked my satay chicken recipe a bit, mainly to reduce the amount of spice so that our children can also enjoy this dish, as well as bulk up the vegetable component.

But as with most Chinese stir-fries, the ingredients are quite changeable. I love to use capsicums (bell peppers), but beans, snow peas, and broccoli also work well in this recipe. Whatever you have in the fridge, really!

I also like to make a plentiful và runny sauce so that it goes well with a bowl of rice, but you can make it as runny or as thick as you lượt thích (the restaurant versions tend to lớn have less sauce).

Although the list of ingredients look long, these are items which I commonly have at home. In fact, if you regularly make curries at trang chủ from scratch (and a satay sauce is essentially a curry), you are also likely lớn have most of these spices already.

Really lovely sauce but I’m really annoyed i’ve just had to bin a lot of chicken as the bicarbonate of soda gives the chicken a disgusting taste! Am just lucky I tried the chicken when first fried & not after I’d put it in all of the sauce… having googled it seems the bicarb should be rinsed off before cooking? Is this the case?

Made this tonight and even my son who doesn’t like peanuts said it was the best chicken dish ever! Bookmarking this one. Didn’t have lemongrass so used lemon rind otherwise did as exactly written. Thanks for a great recipe
