What happens when you don’t have all the ingredients to make a recipe you had in mind? You create a new one!

Last Tuesday as I was heading home from work, I was thinking ( as usual 😉 ) of what to make for dinner; I knew I wanted something easy because I wasn’t feeling to well, but I also knew it need it be delicious… and then it clicked! Stir Fry. Yay! Stir Fry is one of those recipes that you can put together in no time and it is so delicious. (more…)
