Even though it’s August, I can feel summer coming to a close. I know this because the sun is nearly down upon returning home from work now. Unfortunately, my pictures will continue to get worse and worse with no natural light, unless I become inventive and create a lightbox…
Since it was dark when I got home and I was already famished, dinner was as quick as could be: stir fry.
I heated up 1/2 tbsp of olive oil in a medium saucepan, then added about 1/4 of this bag along with some fresh broccoli and the remains of a bag of pepper stir fry. I thawed some frozen cooked shrimp in cold water while this cooked for about five minutes.
After five minutes, I added the shrimp and, instead of the teriyaki sauce package that came with (mostly water and corn syrup), I added my own favorite stir fry sauce:
- 2 tbsp powdered peanut butter
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
- 1 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp ginger
- 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
I could almost eat this stuff with a spoon as soup; that’s how much I love it.
Delicious heap of veggies and shrimp, no matter what the picture looks like! I also had a piece of Dave’s delicious honey whole wheat bread on the side, to sop up the remaining peanut sauce.
As if I would let that go to waste. Pssht.
