Do you ever run in to people you deleted off Facebook? Was it totally awkward? Did you play it off like "Oh hiiiiii... it's been so long. How are YOU?" Because that's what I do. I delete people.
Not because they are bad people (well ok, there have been a couple who I think are kinda sketchy). But then there are the ones... Oh we attended preschool together 30 years ago, friend request accepted! And then you realize you do not know them at all. Delete.
My Aunt Val is an A+ Girl Scout troop leader. She loves girl scouts. If it were not for her, I probably would not have gotten involved when I was a little kid. One of my best memories growing up was when I got to tag along with her and her troops on a camping trip. I had a BLAST. So now whenever I think of Girl Scout Cookies, I think of her.
About 20 years ago, Aunt Val and her family moved away from New Hampshire, and back to Colorado. I have not seen them since. She doesn't have a Facebook account, so I have not really stayed in touch with her. But have kept tabs on my cousins over the years.
About a year ago, I received a random email from her. I opened it up to read that she has joined Pinterst! Not only that while she was searching for Girl Scout Cookie recipes, and she stumbled upon my Samoa Cookie Dip. She fell in love, went to print it off, and then while doing so she looked over and saw my photo in the side bar. Oh my gosh moment..... this is my Niece! She didn't even know I had this little ol' piece of internet.
How neat right? The Internet has great powers of bringing people together.
General Tso's Chicken is one take out dish I never get sick of, nor does my husband! After making General Tso's Cauliflower for the blog recently and then these Sriracha Chicken Tenders.... I got to thinking I should combine the two dishes since they have been so popular on the blog and at home.
These tenders are baked not fried, and instead of using thigh meat like most General Tso's recipes we are using healthier leaner breast meat. When the tenders are done baking, we roll them in our homemade General Tso's sauce and then enjoy.
My husband and I like to dip them in my mom's homemade chili sauce, duck sauce or even sweet and sour sauce. Though the tenders are great all on their own and can even be served over rice.
