JULY – 15th, Dan and I thought on continuing this segment with the series with some fun; What is it about July that’s so significant during this month?
Orange Chicken Day – July 15, 2022
National Orange Chicken Day is celebrated on July 15 each year, and whatever its original claim to fame, we’re so glad it came to Chinese restaurants all over North America to delight our palates with another delectable dish from the Orient.
Interestingly enough, the orange chicken, which many Americans know and love, is not strictly authentic to any original Chinese dish, though the flavor profile is inspired by the Hunan Province of China.
Some of the most beloved versions can essentially be described as chicken nuggets tossed in a delightfully tangy, zesty, sticky sauce which contains most Asian food staples like vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic.
Celebrated annually since the year 2017, National Orange Chicken Day is a literal feast for the senses.
While it is not clear who officiated this holiday, the origin of the dish itself can be traced back to some controversial claims.
More than 2,100 years ago, Hunan cuisine reached its peak ,standard due to the sheer range of dishes it offered which was over 4,000 along with its cooking techniques.
Located in the southeastern regions of China, the Hunan Province is known for its spicy and sour food, with one-star ingredients shining in each dish.
The colors were vibrant, the fragrance fresh, and the food greasy and immensely satisfying.
Therefore, the tangerine chicken was most likely the precursor of the orange chicken dish which we all enjoy today.
Tangerine chicken originated in the Hunan Province and its Chinese name literally translates to dried citrus peel chicken.
It had a more fresh and spicy flavor than the orange chicken, which evolved in later days.
Time is precious and is priceless, so Dan and I will continue each day to pull from a box of 365 inspirational quotes; one quote and share with you.
BEING MORE JOYFUL THAN YESTERDAY MAKES EVERY NEW DAY OF OUR LIFE WORTHWHILE.

CHAPTER 17; WHEN YOU WANT TO HELP
WHEN YOU NEED OUTSIDE HELP-
Select the style of counseling.
Some people seek one-on-one counseling where trust is often easier to establish.
But one person, professional or friend is just that; one person, with an agenda, goals and set ways of working.
If you decide on joint counseling for you and your difficult person, suggest to them that you go together for counseling to learn techniques that will build your relationship.
The purpose of counseling is to find out what you are doing right and wrong.
Not how the other guy is wrong.
The goal is to find ways to team together.
WARNING; seeking outside counsel is of no use if the sessions are just opportunities to criticize.
Continuing on the herb; ASTRAGALUS and the benefits, It’s the last herb from the book ALCHEMY OF HERBS by Rosalee De La Foret.
