Do you know what I love about stir-fries? You can literally make them with anything you have on hand. Literally. Any handfuls of vegetables- fresh, canned or frozen can be compiled in a pot with or without meat and be called dinner.
Yesterday I looked in the fridge and freezer debating what should be [...]
The hot, hot, hot weather is on it’s way! Tomorrow at this time the mercury is expected to climb back up into the range of “oppressive”. We’re ready for it. The air conditioners are in the windows, and I have a garden full of salad greens ready to be a quick and easy [...]
