On Monday night, I got a text from Shawn: I’ll be home at 8 tomorrow. Want to do dinner?
I answered yes, figuring I would just eat a little later than I had originally planned. It’s always nice to eat together.
I wasn’t expecting his reply: Cool. Pick something up on your way home from work, Surprise me.
What the hell? I’m very indecisive when it comes to what to make for dinner as is, so I hate being solely responsible for making that decision. Plus we just rejoined Weight Watchers, so I needed to come up with something extra good that wasn’t a lot of points. (I don’t get many, so I have to make them count!)
I ended up making a sweet and spicy stir fry loaded with a combination of everything that looked good in the store plus a few things that I had in the fridge. I was pretty hungry by the time it was ready so I wasn’t planning to take pictures, but before I had even finished serving myself Shawn was yelling to me from the other room about how “super good” it was. I’m glad that I took a few extra seconds to snap some, because he was right: the steak was super tender and perfectly seasoned with lots of bite from the ginger and garlic, the sauce was subtly sweet, but not heavy or sticky, and the vegetables added lots of fresh flavor and satisfying bulk without seeming overbearing.
Not bad at all for something I threw together without any planning!
