    1. Jenni the list of ingredients looks daunting but most of them are vegetables you can add or take away the variety of veg to simplify the recipe.

  20. I'm bit usually a fan of this sort of food but it sounds delicious! x

  21. We make this kind of stir fry all the time during the gardening season but without the cashews - it's delicious and without the nuts, it's Weight Watchers friendly. Yum! Alana visiting from UBC.

  23. Looks great but I refuse to cook! My hubby have done it since we meet and now my youngest daughter, age 17 is cooking if he's at work. I don't understand the fun in it and because of that my food if I'm forced to do it taste like that. I have try learn to like it but I found it soooo boring to turn meat in the fry pan ... Baking cookies and bread is more fun.
