Lauren and Sean went to visit her grandparents in South Georgia, so I'm baching it this weekend. I've done the usual: mowed the grass at our church, mowed our grass, spread fertilizer, weeded our yard, weeded our garden, worked on my porch swing (more on that soon), and caught up on blogs and other geeky content.
I walked outside and began picking the ones that looked ready and realized I had more than a handful. Walking inside it happened -- I got inspired! I quickly realized we had a little bit of rice, some onion and carrots. So, I started to make some make-shift stir-fry. I got the rice going and cleaned the snow peas, cut up the onion, then realized I had some garlic. At the last second I remembered we had some cashews. In twenty minutes I whipped up the best vegetable stir-fry you've ever put in your mouth.
My cooking adventures don't always turn out as good, but I love it when a plan comes to together.
The recipe is below if you are so inclined.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic
2 handfuls of fresh picked snow peas
2 large carrots, thinly sliced
1/3 cup halved cashews
1 tablespoon soy sauce
I put the rice on and let it cook according to the directions. Then, I heated the olive oil in a wok and added the minced garlic and sliced onion. Let that cook for a couple of minutes until the onion was tender and added the snow peas and carrots. Let that cook about a minute then I added the cashews and soy sauce. Stirred for another minute and put over the rice. Finally, I ate rapidly with a cup of iced tea.
Sometimes I Get Inspired - Snow-Pea Stir Fry
Austin, wow you were a busy man and the Wok dish sounds delish! I miss you but having fun at the beach. Can't wait to spend a week together here in June. See you Thursday for our lunch and disciple time together.
I bet Lauren was jealous... I know Kyle will be when he reads this, lol. I can't believe we didn't grow peas of all things! Hahaha. Oh well - next year! Glad it worked out for you :) Can't wait to see the bench!
Hmmm, my wife knows me well... I am jealous. Delicious as that appears, I have to say I'm just as impressed with your rabbit trails. The A-Team?!!! I never saw that coming! Look out Nathan Elmore-- you have a rabbit trail challenger!
