today was “oh shit everything in the refrigerator is about to go bad” day in my household.
i have a serious food shopping problem. and yes, i know the whole idea of not going grocery shopping when you’re hungry, but any time i go grocery shopping, i GET hungry. so this whole situation doesn’t really apply to me. i’ve tried everything: lists, going after work and buying for that night’s dinner, picking out recipes for the whole week…you name it. but i still overbuy. without fail. as a matter of fact, my household has diminished by one and yet i still bought the same (dollar) amount of food that we did for a full household.
and it’s not like i don’t eat what i buy. i eat constantly. even my coworker loves to tell me that each time he walks to my office, i’m putting something in my mouth. and since i have the maturity level of a puberty ridden thirteen year old, i immediately smirk at him. he will either turn red and run the opposite direction, or roll his eyes at me and walk away.
anyway, back to tonight. so i get home and i’m not only starving, but i am also at a loss with what i could make with the mass amounts of veggies and potatoes i have left over. so, i started chopping everything that was about to go off. and what did i make?
the skinny ginger’s “everything is about to go bad, so cook it all and sautee it with some type of sauce” on top of rice!
go ahead, ooh and ah all over it because it’s amazing. maybe it can also be called stir fry. i added a few spoonfuls of this “soyaki” stuff from Trader Joes, and it is legit. like, too legit to quit.
maybe you could add a little teriyaki chicken to it if you’re a carnivore and enjoy eating the flesh of animals — sorry……………………….no i’m not.
okay, yes. it is stir fry but i was SO FREAKING IMPRESSED with the taste of everything together that i literally licked my plate. i wish i was joking, but i’m not. and i’m not even embarrassed to share that.
also, the mushrooms probably should have been thrown away yesterday, but i worked passed the slime and they still worked.
so go ahead, toss all those veggies into a pan and stir up something “fresh” and you might just be surprised at the turn out. oh, and don’t forget the sriracha.
happy days ya’ll x,
