I love stir fry, hubby does not! So as you can probably guess, I don’t make them as often as I would like, especially since the girls left home. The girls love making and eating stir fry as much as I do so I had allies when they lived at home. I’m glad they enjoy healthy eating and miss working with them in the kitchen. Here’s how to make an easy and quick vegetable stir-fry. Feel free to switch up the vegetables with what ever you have on hand!
