Shrimp Stir Fry

In the world of dinners that can be on the table in the time that it takes to gather everyone AT the table, the Stir-Fry can't be beat. 

This can be a real life-saver for us Dinner-Super-Parents. They can be made fast, exactly how you want them, and with a little prep ahead of time, they are almost no work!  (I LOVE that!!)

Stir-Fry at my house doesn't have a recipe. I use whatever veggies I have. I use rice that I cooked in a double (or triple) batch and saved for later, and I don't get fussy with the sauce. 

I want to share with you the Food $ense Creates - pattern to create a stir-fry. 

These are my bags of prepped veggies that I pulled out of the fridge. I buy them and then I take some time and cut them up.  I feel like that last a lot longer than buying the ones that are pre-bagged. And I know without a doubt we eat a lot more veggies when I can just grab them like this. 

Some of us had shrimp - some of us had just veggies. I didn't get the chicken out of the freezer and so when I was looking in the freezer and being disappointed with myself, I saw the bag of shrimp - and they defrost (and cook) FAST! - so that made the decision to add them really easy. 

Add Veggies - I was all fancy mom, and we did Individual ones... the kids thought I was really cool.

Serve over your reheated rice, or noodles, or barley or quinoa or.......  more veggies made in noodles.... or......... ??
