This entire winter, I’ve been dragging my sleepy self out of bed by 6am every Saturday morning for long runs under the fierce Minnesotan weather that has stubbornly refused to lighten up.
Every single time, I re-ask my exhausted brain why I keep doing this to myself. Of course, the answer is found here and when I manage to remember that, I stop fussing and move forward.
After moving forward as fast as my Asics will go for 3 hours on snow and ice, I’m pretty much useless the rest of the day. I end up scatterbrained all afternoon and doing wonky things like drowning my brand new bluetooth earbuds in the washing machine. That really happened. I somehow missed the earbuds when emptying my jacket and sent them both into the sudsy washing machine.
This is right on the tail of my last tech debacle just a couple weeks ago. Nobody will let me borrow their electronic components after this, I’m sure.
Hubby had me try resuscitating those soaked earbuds by immersing them in a bag of uncooked rice. Why not. And wouldn’t you know…it did the trick. My limpy earbuds somehow work beautifully again, thanks to rice.
I’m totally not advising that y’all soak your electronics in jasmine rice, but I am giving you something you’ll definitely want to pour over your rice instead: this awesome Kung Pao Chicken.
This Kung Pao Chicken recipe is one of those chicken recipes that your family will gobble up as quickly as you dish it up. It’s fast, healthy, and way better than takeout…
Here’s why this Kung Pao Chicken recipe is one of my favorite chicken recipes for busy weeknight dinners:

Plus, this Kung Pao Chicken recipe happens to be gluten free and dairy free, for those who have sensitivities.
P.S. It’s way better with jasmine rice than earbuds.
