Sorry everyone I've been so late at getting this recipe to you all. It actually turned out rather well. It was kind of a pain to cut the chicken up so small...I'm looking into finding another way to mince it; and I forgot to make the rice sticks. Overall it's awesome and we'll definitely be making it again! I combined 2 different recipes on sparkrecipes to make this one (don't forget this is a low cal, low fat meal; which makes it even more yummy). Enjoy!

I enjoyed my friend Marlene visiting from Paris. Her trips are always fun and seem too short. While she was here we were able to celebrate my birthday! We had a fabulous party at the house. Tons of friends and family and food! It was great, just what I wanted for turning 27! And the weather cooperated for once. Every year it seems that it monsoons on my birthday. This year it was clear, crisp and just right for a patio party!
Speaking of patio, you can find me this evening enjoying food and drinks on my lovely patio. The weather is nice and just right to be relaxing outside. I can't wait. I also can't wait to try a new recipe. I'm going to attempt to make Asian chicken lettuce wraps tonight. I always order them when we hit up our local Pei Wei and they're just sooo good, I'm going to try and recreate the deliciousness in my kitchen! We'll see, we might be enjoying grilled cheese sandwiches on the patio instead! I'll let you know how they turn out! Hope you all are having a wonderful week so far!
