Since the last yesterday, not much as happened. We visited a few stores to pick up groceries and ended up singing a few country songs throughout the day, but overall it was rather uneventful.
As, you might remember, Monday is Austin’s day to cook for our flat, and she chose to make Stirfry for everyone. We had some frozen mixed vegetables (corn, peas, green beans, and carrots) in the freezer, so she used those and some leftover eggplant, as well as some mushrooms she had bought at the store to make it. We also had some rice and soy sauce in the cabinets, so there was really not much for her to purchase. It probably would have come to about five pounds if she had bought all the ingredients that day.
First you boil some water in a pot and put the rice in, to start cooking it. Although, be sure to read your specific rice package, as the directions might be slightly different.
Next, you put some oil in a skillet, to make it non-stick and to get it ready for the vegetables. Put the stove to about level 4 or 5, but not to high or it might burn the veggies. Then, once the skillet is hot, take all the vegetables you want to use and put them in the skillet. They will hiss as the water in them evaporates, so don’t be worried if that happens. (Be sure to move the vegetables around as they cook to get a more even fry amongst them.) This step can take some time if they are frozen, so be patient. (Meanwhile be sure to be watching the rice.)
Once cooked enough, put some soy sauce in the pan with the vegetables to add flavor and let it cook for another minute or two. Once that is done, as well as the rice, it is ready to serve! And it is very tasty!
Also, tomorrow I start classes! So, wish me good luck!
I hope your travels lead you where you need to go and that you have a terrific day wherever you are!
