Simple Broccoli Stir Fry

I know I’ve mentioned how small our town is.  To put it in perspective, we have one Chinese restaurant.  We have another restaurant that offers some ethnic options, but it’s not nearly as good and just recently we acquired a Thai restaurant.  Very exciting stuff, haha.  We very rarely order Chinese food let alone order out.  We ordered it maybe twice in the last three years apart from eating it at someone else house a few times.  It’s a nice treat sometimes but we always feel sick to our stomachs after.  There’s way too much salt and sugar and unhealthy fats.

So to avoid wanting to order out I make stir fry’s quite often(although I’m sure my husband dreads the words “stir fry” coming out of my mouth because it usually never involves meat.)  To me, this tastes way better than take out.  And honestly, it takes very little time.  I chop all the veggies in the morning or early afternoon and then cover them and keep them in the fridge till dinner time.  This is so handy.  If you work all day it’s frustrating to have to chop veggies for 20 minutes before getting to cook when all you want to do is eat.  And if you have little kids, dinner time is usually when they start getting cranky and making dinner takes way more time than it should.  Good thing the veggies don’t mind being chopped up ahead of time.  The night before when you have a few minutes after everyone’s gone to bed, or before work in the morning, or whenever you have a few minutes.  Then the rest is fast and easy.
