Today a friend of mine leaves to go back to Scotland where he is attending grad school at the University of Glasgow. Since we probably won't be able to see him again until Halloween, we had a very quite dinner at Heather and Sarina's. (Where all our dinners are basically.) It was just four of us but still lots of fun. Maybe you've heard of a little show called Archer? If you haven't, I strongly suggest that you go out, buy season 1 now, and marathon it until season 2 premiers on Jan 27: top notch cast (featuring a favorite of mine, Jessica Walter), brilliantly hilarious writing, and kitschy animation. "Stir-Friday" is a weekly event for some of the characters. We have been talking about doing a stir-Friday for a while now, but we literally had no Fridays available in a month to do it on, so we had "Stir-Thursday".
I didn't write down exactly what I did, because I recently featured a stir fry recipe. After the fact, I realized I should have written it down, but that's ok. Another time--maybe in a month or so. I will give you a brief rundown of the flavors (not all of the ingredients).
The Sauce: orange, soy sauce, rice vinegar, ginger, garlic, and sriracha (Thinned with water and then thicken with cornstarch.)
Veggies: broccoli, onions, sugar snap peas, and green onions tossed in at the end (I literally could not find my carrots anywhere... I am still a little bothered by it.)
Meat: Shrimp, because Drew is a pescatarian. Or as Heather calls it, a fishtatarian.
Bed: whole wheat angel hair pasta
