Simple dinner

Last night we got home late from shopping but we really didn't want to stop and grab food that wasn't good for us and expensive. So we just ate late :) It's summer right!?! I love whipping up stir fry cause it's so easy and so filling even though it's just veggies and meat! (unless you have it over rice like we did last night! Baaaad.....Should have been brown rice but oh well).   

After looking at a how to in Cooking Light 6 Step Stir Fry I've changed how I do stir fry. I actually cook my proteins (in this one it's tofu and chicken) separate from my veggies and then throw it all together with the sauce at the end. I used their Peanut Sauce mentioned here.

 If you haven't tried this sauce from Trader Joe's it's so good! I add it to so many marinades and sauces!

I am utilizing all of my burners in our tiny apartment! 

Mmmmm......I love the smell when it's cooking. That soy sauce, garlic, ginger make it so good!

 Top with fresh cilantro

Dinner Time!!!!!

Hi Anne! Thanks for stopping over at Lovingly Thrown Together. So glad to meet you :) Your daughter is adorable! and I love Trader Joes. Just thought I'd throw that in. Seems like you might too.

I wanted to email you back but you're a "no reply" blogger. It means that when you comment on others' blogs your reply to email address comes up as "" which obviously doesn't go back to you. I got to your blog bc you're a smart lady and left your link.

Do you know how to fix that? I just recently did it myself. It's easy. I can send you directions from my friend's blog. Email me again:
