Does this mean I'm getting old?

I was in the supermarket with Mr. B on Sunday and I picked up a Family Circle magazine. I was so excited that it had a bunch of chicken recipes in there. That's old lady excitement, right?? Well, we tried one of the recipes and it was pretty amazing. Try it out:

2 cloves garlic, minced
1tbsp minced ginger (we used ground instead)
2c. sliced mushrooms ( you could substitute any veggie)
4 sliced scallions (we used a shallot instead)
1/2tsp red pepper flakes
1/2tsp each of salt and black pepper
1lb. boneless, skinless chicken cut into 1/2" pieces
1.5tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1tbsp rice vinegar (we omitted this)
