Veggie Stir Fry

We all have those bits and pieces of vegetables in our fridge that we just don’t seem to get around to eating. Veggie stir fry to the rescue!! You reduce food waste, get in a health serving of vegetables, and it tastes fantastic.

Burger Call Saul!!! A perfect theme night for watching Better Call Saul.
