It’s a chilly one out there today. We’re under an ice storm warning for the next several days and I’m hoping and praying our electricity doesn’t go out.
I love how Oklahoma skips right over fall and dives head first into winter. Leaves changing colors, what’s that?
Cool fall temps with sweaters? Never heard of her.
We’ll be putting our wood burning stove to good use until mid-week. Not only that, I’ve got a stash of soups and stews to get us through the arctic temperatures.
I am sad I don’t have any leftovers of this stir-fry hanging around in my fridge. It sure would be tasty right about now.
This is a simple stir-fry but it’s packed with a load of flavor. I like amping up the heat in my dinners so I put a lot of Sriracha in mine, but if you don’t like a bunch of heat you can dial it back down.
I loaded this stir-fry up with my favorite vegetables: green beans, red bell peppers, and mushrooms. I ate this by itself topped with sesame seeds and some more hot sauce, but it’s just as good on top of rice or cauliflower rice.
If you’re in need of a warm meal for a cold night, this recipe is for you. Not only that, it’s incredibly easy to make.
