Copycat Cashew Chicken

Today’s eats have been mighty tasty.  I could wax poetic about flavors for hours, but we saved up the last two weeks of Castle and are in the middle of a very tense marathon!

Bagel for breakfast.

A Garlic and Italian Herb Bagel Thin (a new flavor!) with smoked salmon cream cheese.

Fruits and vegetables for lunch, split up before and after work.  Roasted broccoli with lots of melted sharp cheddar before.

Honeycrisp apple with 1/2 Tbsp melted peanut butter after.

The apple was good, the cheesy broccoli was better.

Dinner was an absolute success.

We followed this copycat recipe for Cheesecake Factory’s spicy cashew chicken.  We doubled the sauce and subbed Sriracha for cayenne pepper but otherwise followed the recipe.

Flipping amazing!  Served with white basmati rice,

and more roasted broccoli.

We loved every bite and are eagerly awaiting leftovers for dinner tomorrow.

Single-serve cookie dough for dessert.

Also amazing.

And with that, I’ve got to go – Castle is blowing my mind.

Do you watch Castle?
