My garden is looking quite abundant these days. Juicy red tomatoes, shiny green zucchini, fragrant leaves of basil……I think it’s time for a summer stir fry! I love the days when I can pick fresh produce right in my own backyard and it ends up on my table in just a few minutes….yard to table….yep, that’s when I’m happiest! And on those days when it’s too hot to turn on your oven, and you don’t even want to fire up the grill outside, you can make a quick stove top stir fry dinner in no time at all! No garden in your backyard? Just visit your local farmer’s market* and dinner will be fabulously delicious!
