Escargot & Pineapple Stir Fry

Alaina has been in the kitchen again. She loves kid cookbooks because there are so many pictures. Awhile back she looked at a cookbook from the library that had escargot for lunch. I can't remember what they put in theirs, but we used tuna salad in our snails.
We thought they were so cute.

Tortilla Shells
Whole Pickles

~ Mix tuna with some mayonnaise so it will stick together. (or however your kids like it)
~Next spread the tuna on a tortilla shell.
~Roll up the tortilla shell and cut into 1 inch wide pieces.
~Slice pickles diagonal so they will stand up.
~Place tuna roll & pickle on plate & add toothpicks.

 Alaina also turned her pizza into a rat face.

This week Alaina didn't choose a cookbook from the library, so she used one we already owned. She chose to make Hula Stir Fry out of the New Junior Cookbook from Better Homes and Gardens.

My kids are always helping in the kitchen, so Alaina didn't need a lot of help. I cut her chicken for her, but she cut all her other vegetables. We have tried several recipes from this cookbook & have enjoyed them all. The instructions are very detailed, so if you are not used to being in the kitchen you will know exactly what to do.

Of course we didn't follow the exact directions. My girls love the flavor of garlic, onions, & ginger root in any stir fry. So here is our rendition of Hula Stir Fry.

Pineapple Stir Fry

1 Pound Chicken
1 Tablespoon Cooking Oil
1 Onion
1 Small Bell Pepper
2 Cloves Crushed Garlic
1 Teaspoon Chopped Ginger Root
2 Carrots
1 8 Ounce Can of Pineapple Chunks
2 Packages of Ramen Noodles
1/2 Cup Water
2/3 Cup Stir Fry Sauce
2 Tablespoons Garlic Sauce

~Cut chicken into bite size pieces.
~Cut onion, bell pepper, ginger root, and crush garlic.
~Cut carrots into bite size pieces.
~Heat oil in large pan or wok.
~Cook chicken until done.
~Add onions, garlic, ginger root, and carrots and stir fry until tender, about 5-10 minutes.
~Add the water, sauces, and the pineapples with the juice.
~Break ramen into smaller pieces and add to pan making sure noodles are in the water. Do not use the spice packet.
~Heat til liquid boils and noodles are tender, about 3 minutes.

I'll have to check that cookbook out from our library. Does it include the nutrition values?
