I’m always looking for new things to make for dinner during the week. Sometimes having the same meals over and over can get a little boring. I try and plan my meals the week ahead, but sometimes its hard to think of things that you’ll be in the mood for. Plus, I never know everyone’s schedule (who is going to be home and who isn’t) and since my son is picky about a few things I try and base my meals around that.
One dish I know everyone enjoys is a good old stir fry. The great thing about stir fry is that you can use just about any kind of veggie and protein. Having to chop all of the veggies in a stir fry can be a little time consuming, but I know a lot of the grocery stores now have stir fry veggies already chopped. Whole Foods has a few selections you can choose from (veggie wise) and all you have to do is throw them in the pan which makes things a little easier. This week I decided to use red and yellow peppers, onions, broccoli and cherry tomatoes. I also remembered I had frozen shrimp from Trader Joe’s that I added as well. I cooked the shrimp first with olive oil, garlic and fresh lemon juice and then added all of my veggies. I also made my own stir fry sauce using GF Tamari sauce, GF cornstarch, honey, sesame seed oil, rice wine vinegar and some minced garlic. This was my first time making my own sauce and it didn’t turn out that bad. I just added a sprinkle of sesame seeds to the finished dish and it was delish!
