I’ll admit that when I go grocery shopping, I don’t usually have a plan. I do the weekly shopping on Wednesday, and usually just buy what strikes me at the time. If it looks good, it goes into the cart. It can be just about anything. Heck, I’m easy when it comes to food. I like everything! So, it’s not unusual to find a hodgepodge of items in the fridge or cabinets. It makes cooking dinner an adventure – and I can almost always make just about anything i want without having to head back to the store!

Naturally, there can be a downside… Fresh produce that’s not going to remain fresh much longer, for example… That’s where stirfry’s come in. First off, I love them! An assortment of just about anything in a spicy, flavorful sauce is right up my gastronomic alley. Thankfully, Victor feels the same way – and knows his way around a kitchen, too!

I worked until 5:30pm tonight, and thought I’d throw something together for dinner when I got home. Instead, I was treated with “I have dinner all planned” when I walked in the door! The only thing better than cooking is having someone else cook for you! I was psyched!

Victor cleaned out the produce bin and chopped asparagus, red bell pepper, carrots, celery, onion, and mushrooms. Sauteed some chicken breasts, added the above veggies, and made the most delicious sauce with wasabi teriyaki sauce, peach jam, and chili paste! Juuuuust spicy enough, without clearing out the sinuses completely! Served over white rice… It was great! Cleaned out fridge, full belly… Life is good.

Now I have to figure out something for dessert! 😉
