Stir-Fried Chicken with Snow Peas
Basmati Rice

Cooking time: 30 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

          As this is the only celery I used this week I listed it as optional.  I had a bit left...  The water chestnuts add a nice crunch. I used both red and yellow tomatoes.
