Basic Stir Fry Recipe

Image
I thought I had previously posted a recipe with my homemade stir fry sauce but it appears I haven't, or it's been a while. So here it is!
I switch up my veggies when making stir fry which is why I love it so much. You can have so many different textures and flavors, depending on what you use.


My favorite veggies to use are: broccolizucchinicauliflowercarrotsmushroomsasparagusbaby corn or corn kernelspeas (snap, snow, or shelled)bell peppersshelled edamame beanscelerychopped kalered onionsgarlicgingergreen chile (optional)

Grilled Veggie and Lentil Tacos

This recipe is also from www.acouplecooks.com and was in my calendar. I didn't follow the directions exactly and swapped the summer squash for mushrooms for some extra protein, and I also just had mushrooms that needed to be used.
The spice mixture for the lentils looked odd to me but I did as it said and they tasted pretty good. I topped my tacos with hot sauce and regular sour cream.
Recipe can be found here!
Thanks for stopping by! 😀

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Enchiladas

When I got back from Mexico I kept the vibe going by making these amazing enchiladas from acouplecooks.com. This recipe is also from the calendar that my 'second parents' bought me as a Christmas gift and this is the fourth recipe I've made from it.

So, my mom's friends got me a calendar for Christmas and it has recipe on it for almost every day. It wasn't advertised as vegetarian recipes but so far they all have been!

Trip to Mexico!

Image
Hola amigas! I went away in March and it was THE BEST TRIP I'VE EVER HAD!! The group of ladies I went with are amazing and hilarious - I can't even explain how much fun I had. We made some new friends there too and I can't wait to see them next year when we go.

My weekends and February's workout schedule

Image
I've been really enjoying the last few weekends with friends. Last weekend we went to an ice fishing derby that my boyfriend's company hosted - we didn't catch anything but it was a beautiful winter day to be outside. That wrapped up around 3PM so we got back to the city and decided to check out Festival De Voyageur. It was muddy and wet everywhere but was neat to be there since I hadn't been since I was 8. Ate some junk food, had a few beers, and watched the band perform a few songs.

Coconut Chips

Image
When I was in Maui a year ago we stopped somewhere along the "Road to Hana" where there was a tiny coffee shop and a guy selling coconut chips outside his house. He had 5 or 6 flavors to choose from so I got vanilla and another one that I can't remember. And my dad got the volcano flavor which was a mix of sweet and spicy, and quite delightful. I looked up a recipe shortly after I got home from the trip and haven't actually tried it... until today.
