Vegetable Stir Fry

November 7, 2016

We love this stir fry recipe in our house! It’s a fairly easy to make on a week night, and can really satisfy my craving for Thai take out.  The most time consuming part is chopping all of the vegetables, and it’s really not so bad…  The roasted cashews add a lot of flavor.  A LOT!  So don’t skip that step, it’s totally worth it, and really makes the dish.  Oh, and the…
