Sometimes, it can be good when things don’t go as planned. Take the other night, for example. I’d planned on having spaghetti with tomato sauce as a quick dinner. But the powers that be had other ideas.
When I opened the box of pasta, I discovered there was only about 1/2 a serving (1 ounce) left. Ack! What was a hungry girl to do? Time to open the fridge and see what I could throw together… I basically cleared my refrigerator of every single veggie lurking around to come up with a “kitchen sink” stir fry. Complete with lots of fresh ginger and garlic, this went perfectly over my pasta. It was one of the yummiest meals I’ve eaten in a long time. (And I’m pretty sure my roommate is happy to see the fridge so clean!)
A close-up of the veggie goodness:
(Fresh broccoli, spinach, cherry tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, cauliflower, shiitake mushrooms, garlic, ginger, and soy sauce)
A few nights later, I got to enjoy the leftovers over barley.
Not as colorful (where did all the tomatoes go???), but still just as tasty! Proving I do eat other things besides chocolate!
