Today was my first day off for Thanksgiving break, so I definitely took advantage! I slept in, watched Oprah, played some Animal Crossing on the Wii, went out for lunch at Panera with Adam, and then came home and literally did nothing. It was AWESOME!
We both got hungry pretty early (the curse of bread and soup for lunch), so I decided to throw together a stir-fry with what we had in the freezer. We had frozen cooked shrimp, a bag of Asian-style vegetables, frozen broccoli, and this spicy stir fry sauce I’ve been dying to try.
Today’s dinner doesn’t even get a recipe its so simple! Cook the vegetables in a small amount of oil in a wok. Add shrimp. Cook til no longer frozen. Add sauce. Cook til heated through. Serve on rice.
See? Simple! And GORGEOUS!
In no particular order, the vegetables in this lovely stir fry are:
- red peppers
- baby corn
- water chestnuts
- sugar snap peas
- shrimp…wait, not a vegetable, but still quite delicious!
I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s dinner which will probably be even simpler…and then on to the Thanksgiving festivities! We have 4 or possibly 5 SEPARATE EVENTS to go to between Thursday and Sunday!
QOTD: What’s your favorite Thanksgiving tradition? Oddly enough, my favorite thing is on Thanksgiving morning, turning on the Macy’s parade, and then waiting for my phone to ring so my mom and I can squeal in excitement about seeing the Rockettes!
