Hi everyone, I have been chatting with a few of my blogger friends who still have not yet seen any Spring weather and some have mentioned that in their areas it’s snowing!!! I know in a way how they must be feeling because last year around this time it was raining non stop here. So, the weather we have been having lately is odd, but it’s April already so I am sending to all my bloggers friends who are still waiting for Spring “the Spring Vibes” . Hope this works!! 🙂
This recipe is a quick version of stir-fry that can be put together in less than 20 minutes, that’s if you’ve in a rush and would like to make something delicious and yet quickly because you just got back from a busy day at work and are starving. I had already washed and drained the shrimps so that was done a day in advance, but I was missing a few of the veggies and the quality of the fresh produce was not exactly well, let’s just say they just looked strange so I decided to buy frozen veggies.
To be honest the frozen veggie pack saved me a lot of time in the kitchen because I was out most of the day, and when I got back it would have taken me just about an hour to cut, chop, dice, and fry. So, in a way a meal in 20 minutes is not half bad. 🙂
