RECIPE OF THE WEEK
Recipe provided by Damn Delicious

Ingredients

  • 1 cup jasmine rice
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 red Thai chili pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/4 pounds ground chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
*Use non-spicy peppers for a more mild version of this recipe*

Instructions

  1. Cook rice according to package instructions; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together chicken stock, soy sauce, fish sauce, brown sugar and vinegar; set aside.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, shallots and chili pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add ground chicken and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the chicken as it cooks; drain excess fat.

FIELD UPDATES
I didn't write much last week because I wasn't sure what to say... we still haven't gotten rain on the farm just a few sprinkles here and there. We spent most of last week just irrigating by hand with the four people we had. We are slowly losing crops and are getting nervous about the fall not just on our farm but all farms. Don't get me wrong the crops that have actual irrigation hooked up to them have loved this hot growing season and things that vine like winter squash and sweet potatoes are rather unaffected by this dry weather since they hold in the moisture better. Root crops on the other hand are struggling to hold on as well as some greens. I have reluctantly seeded this past Friday in hopes to get another cropping in with hopes of rain on Saturday but no luck. This will create yet another poor germination planting which stinks! Overall we have been doing well despite this weather but it has taken a tremendous amount of extra work to do so and honestly without the employees we got funding for this year, it would have been a flop so we are very grateful in that way! Be stubborn, Farm on!
