Hmm, it would appear we're moving backwards in time through the courses these last few days. First, dessert, then yesterday's post on dinner, and today a simple stir-fry lunch.
I had plans to make something but when G asked "What's for lunch?" he didn't seem completely thrilled with my answer and wasn't sure it'd be filling enough. Problem was, we didn't have much in the refrigerator and it's been raining like crazy all day so I wasn't about to go out and buy a few more things (though I did manage a run and shaved a whole minute off my 2 mile time! But that's running. Not trudging slowly with bags of food.)
When the fridge is in dire straights and you've got a hungry dude on yr hands, stir fries seem to the the quickest, easiest, most forgiving way to go.
I started some brown basmati rice and grabbed and chopped anything I could from the fridge. One measly head of broccoli from the crisper, an everlasting cabbage and some tomatoes were the vegetables. I heated up some onion, garlic, and ginger (but of course!) in a skillet, threw the vegetables in, added some frozen edamame for protein, and mixed in the cooked rice at the end. Topped with soy sauce and red pepper flakes. I also added sriracha to my bowl.
Warm on a rainy day and a good way to use up the last pickins from the fridge.
Have a good night; I'm off to come up with some brilliant breakfast idea since it seems like we're coming to that.
What's your favorite meal of the day?
