TT - Uncooked Stirfry

Necessity is dictating my list this week. Here are 13 ingredients I have prepped and ready to go for the stir-fry dish I'm trying to cook for dinner tonight. Only catch is that Maya still hasn't fallen asleep so I can't go do it yet. In the meantime, Jay HAS fallen asleep as he put Itai to bed and I'm nodding off here myself. This doesn't bode well for dinner...

1. Multi-color noodles (I'd wanted fried rice but we're completely overstocked on noodles right now and I needed to whittle down some bulk in the pantry.)

2. Leftover cooked meat

3. Broccoli

4. Carrots

5. Oyster mushrooms

6. Green beans

7. Cashews

8. Fresh corn


9. Freshly grated ginger (or at least it was a few hours ago)

10. Garlic

11. Scallions

12. Assorted sauces (soy, hoisin, black bean and garlic, mirin, etc.)

13. Cornstarch and water for thickening

Sigh...

Update: She did eventually fall asleep, but by then Jay was a lost cause so I ended up with dinner for one. Better luck next time.

That's the only kind of a meal I can successfully cook. I would have thrown in celery.

Sounds lovely! Yum. yum.

aliceaudrey said...

I haven't had oyster mushrooms in ages. We did eat stir fry tonight. I put in too much ginger.

Robin said...

It's the next day now, and I just finished eating a bowl of very tasty cold noodles for lunch. I think it was actually better cold than when I ate it hot last night, or else my taste buds were just asleep by that point.

Janet - nope, we don't feed the kids. My kids wouldn't touch this with a 10-foot pole!

Susan - you really should join him!

Lori - it was oyster mushrooms, not actual oysters. Those I don't think would have gone at all.

SJR - in the winter so would I, but celery is way out of season here right now.

So who's joining me for leftovers?

Gray Matters said...

Sounds delicious - I'm not familiar with oyster mushrooms.

EHT said...

It sounded good, at least. Better luck next time.

Toni said...

Sounds good! Have any leftovers for me? :)

Ann said...

It sounds delicious. I love cashews. :)

That sounds yummy. It's not yet noon here so starting to get hungry - thanks. :) Happy TT

Qtpies7 said...

Yumm!
I am so glad my kids are older now, they take turns cooking, so I only cook once a week!

~Virginia~ said...

Wylie Kinson said...

Pretty much what I use in my stir-fry, but the cashews -- BRILLIANT. I'm trying it next time :)

Phyllis Sommer said...
