When I asked Tony if he had a taste for anything for dinner he said “I don’t care baby.”  So that means one of two things – tacos or pizza!  Pizza won! 😀

Earlier today I realized I had to use up some ground chicken that I bought to make chicken potstickers – Hannah absolutely loves them and they are good on their own, or in soup.  While time consuming, this is really simple!

Biz’s Chicken Potstickers

  • 1 pound ground chicken, cooked and cooled
  • 1 large carrot, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup stir fry sauce
  • 1 tablespoon red chile paste

Blend everything together in a large bowl.



My store routinely has these wrappers for $1.19!


Place wrapper on board, and fill with one tablespoon of mixture.  Have a small bowl of water on the side, you’ll need to put water on the edges to seal the edges.


I did these two ways – one was to deep fry, the next was to steam and then pan fry.  I actually think I liked the pan fried better!



I love how the cilantro peeks through in this pic!


Here are the pan fried/steamed version.  I basically steam them in about 6 tablespoons of water.  Once the water evaporates, I add a little oil and Pam and they have a crunchy bottom and a soft top. 


Hannah was very excited when she got home from work – she was so hungry!  Her plate (I was a bit generous with the portions, she ate about 1/2)


Hannah and I had time to hit up another thrift store to finish up my Halloween costume.  I almost bought this bling!


Then we went to the store to pick up a couple things – my store has a .99 cent single serve in the liquor department, and this piqued my interest!


It kind of tasted like piss water with a hint of orange!  Now I know why it was in the sale bin!  And not that I know what piss water tastes like – it was to give you a general idea.  Stay away!  Don’t even look at it if you see it in the store!

So Party Pizza Saturday it was!  So glad that so many people are trying my no rise pizza dough!  And although I used to make it in my food processor – just a bowl and wooden spoon works just fine! 😀


I may have enjoyed a glass of wine while making dinner.  I am classy.  This one is a box wine that says “crisp white!”


I opened up a can of my homemade sauce – the perfect base to pizza!




My side of course is the pepper side – Tony had sausage and sautéed mushrooms.  And I got to use my new pizza peel! 😀



It was delicious!


Probably won’t blog until Monday night– my Mom sings in a choir and I am going to be meeting my twin sister, her MIL, my mom (and Hannah will be with me!) for the concert and then dinner afterwards at one of our favorite restaurants in Forest Park – caffe DeLuca!  We once went there for brunch and I had, hands down, probably the best goat cheese spinach quiche I’ve ever had – the kicker?  NO ONIONS!  What would you order off the dinner menu?

So I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their weekend!  See you Monday night! 😀
