Sunday Stir Fry

Yesterday got away from me before it even began.  With a list longer than my arm, Matt’s arm, and the boys’ arms all together, it became very clear it would not all get done. 

Lunch, cooked by me, however was not an option.  We go through this ebb and flow of eating out and eating in (which I much prefer since I can control what goes into the food).  The few days leading up had been a lot of eating out, so I knew it was time to put a meal together for the boys that was better for them and for me, too.

So – Sunday Stir Fry was what we had for lunch!  Quick, easy, and healthy.

Stir Fry:
