Seriously, I just bought a rice cooker so want to try it out. Will make a big batch of rice, add some chicken and cheese and ranch dressing mix to make a casserole with some mixed veggies on the side.

Chinese pepper steak with lots of long grain white rice. The leftover white rice is going to be used to make fried rice later in the week.

I love my little rice cooker, I make homemade rice pilaf in it all the time. It is so easy when I do Indian or Chinese, I just through the rice in the cooker while I make the main part of the meal.

We are eating light tonight; tuna sandwiches. We had a birthday party earlier this afternoon and couldn't pass on the cake/ice cream!

I originally got the recipe from the Food Network but I've modified it a bunch.

You take 1 fully roasted chicken (either roast it at home or buy it at the store, I prefer to cook my own)
Remove all the meat and toss it in the food processor and pulse it to break it down so it's workable.
Add two cups of your favorite cheese, this time I used mozarella and cheddar. You can use cheddar or a mix.
Add 6 green onions
Add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of hot sauce to taste.

Form into balls

Mix salt and pepper into dredging flour.
Dredge in flour, then egg wash, then in panko bread crumbs. Deep fry at 350 until golden OR bake on cooling rack cookie sheet. Frying is faster, but baking is healthier. Although baking takes longer too.

To reheat place in cast iron pan, do not microwave or they become really gummy, and place in 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Roll them around a couple times throughout the process.

We're having a chef salad with avocados, Roma tomatoes, real bacon, and Ken's Ceasar dressing, with a little crusty bread on the side.
