My creations for the week

I always think homemade Ideas for certain things are best. Such as recipes and hairstyles in this case. So, I thought I'd share mine with you. With pictures too! the first one is my Teryaki Chicken Fried Rice. I never use exact measurements, so you'll just have to guestimate. *Note* this recipe feeds 6-7 people!

Scramble three eggs. set aside. Toast 1 1/2 cups of peanuts in a pan with olive oil and a bit of soy sauce. Set aside.

Cook 3 chicken breasts in olive oil and soy sauce. Season with pepper and seasoned salt. Cube chicken. Add 1 cup of frozen peas, 3 large carrots-jullienned, 3 stalks of celery chopped. heat through, but not completely cooked veggies.

boil 1 cup of pineapple juice, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of ginger, 1/4 c soy sauce, 1 clove of minced garlic. Boil until thickens up.
Add Peanuts and eggs to chicken & vegetables. Add 1/2 of sauce to veggies & chicken. Set aside in large bowl.

Pour about 1/2 cup of olive oil to pan. Turn heat to med-high.

Add about 8-10 cups of rice to pan when oil is hot. Makes sure all the rice gets coated in oil. Add more oil if needed. Fry the rice about 6 min.
Add remaining sauce to rice

If not enough sauce for amount of rice, add more soy sauce

Add 2 tsp of Sri Raka to rice(Found in chinese food @ Walmart/Smiths). This stuff is delish, but VERY hot. Only add if you like spicy stuff!

Add Veggies & chicken mix to rice and mix up. May need more soy sauce depending on how strong you like food.

Enjoy the yummy goodness

Creation #2. This week is spirit week at Cyprus. Today was crazy hair day. Of course Rachel couldn't do her own hair as usual so she asked me. She wanted cute/cool instead of crazy weird hair. She saw this look on paris hilton online and wanted it. I call it the Hair Bow. This was done in 15 minutes at 6am. I didn't have time to experiment. This was the first attempt! Pretty darn good eh? It looks better in real life too. Plus this is at 11pm. It lasted all day without falling out!
Becca's hair salon. Open whenever I decide to get out of bed. By appointment only. Will accept hot cheetos as payment...... In advance
