Well, I don't know of sick is the right word, but she's definitely got a fever and has been crying all morning. Her 2 year molars are coming in (a bit early!), and as we all know, when babies are teething they cry, have a fever, and sometimes a runny nose.
I have a drawer full of bits and pieces of random vegetables and I wanted to use them up before they went to waste. I also made some chicken in the crock pot the other day so I would have shredded chicken on hand for chicken salad, enchiladas, etc.
Mia didnt want to be put down, so I managed to cut as many vegetables one handed as I could, throw in some salt & pepper, light soy sauce, water (to steam) and let it cook for 10 minutes while she hung out on my hip and shoulder and cried. Poor kid.
It's called Fridge-Fry- like stir-fry, but not as fancy. There's also no rice, making it low-carb diet friendly.
Disclaimer: eating healthy or without carbs isn't fun, and definitely not as tasty as adding in white rice, water chestnuts, cashews (no carbs, but really HIGH in fat!), but you use what you have and do your best. It's very different from the fatty southern food I'm used to eating, but it's a whole lot cleaner!
So I guess the message is: don't be prepared to be "Wow'ed" from this dish.
Half a zucchini
2 cups shredded cabbage
1 chopped green onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
Frozen peas and carrots
1 piece of chicken- shredded or whatever you want
Cook in a wok with a little olive oil, then pour in water to steam, covered, for 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper to taste. Add a splash of light soy sauce and a dash of garlic powder.
Mia ate half of this, no joke. She loves everything I've made without carbs so far!
*the reason I use shredded chicken is to trick my mind into thinking it's white rice.
