I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Up until a few years ago when I went to China Town in Chicago, I never ate Chinese food. I still will only eat two orthree things, this happens to be my favorite.



SESAME CHICKEN

*6 tablespoon vegetable oil
*1 yellow onion, sliced
*1 green pepper, thinly sliced
*1 garlic clove, chopped fine
*1/4 cup sesame seeds
*6 tablespoons teriyaki

This looks yummy and easier than I would have guessed to make. This is one of Mike's favorites too.

Thanks for sharing!
