I decided to take my husband on an impromptu date last night. It was a lovely, warm evening and I was feeling the urge to be outside.
Typically when we go out for a picnic we just slap together some sandwiches, but I was wanting something a bit more substantial than that.
I rifled through the fridge and the cabinets and decided to throw together an oriental inspired dish.
chopped onions, broccoli, and freshly squeezed OJ
Crushed allspice, one of my favorite spices
Everything assembled in the crock pot. Free Range chicken breasts, broccoli, onions, rice & vermicelli. All of this was drowned in OJ, a splash of chicken broth, and teriyaki sauce.

Yum, I topped it off with some store bought shrimp sauce.
