Good morning! I am hopeful that everyone reading had a wonderful weekend. We ended up staying in South Carolina with my brother and SIL an extra evening so we could enjoy the gorgeous weather on Sunday instead of being in the car. And the extra baby snuggles made the drive yesterday morning totally worth it. My newest nephew is absolutely precious. He’s calm and hardly cries and has a head FULL of hair. I could stare at him all day. We enjoyed dinner out the first night at The Oak Table. We also had a pizza night as well as a steak night thanks to my SIL’s parents. Counting down to our next visit already!
This week is pretty typical – thankfully – and we’re preparing for my niece’s first overnight visit by herself. Cannot wait to spoil her silly. After we arrived home yesterday I came up with the meal plan for the week and gave Big Guy some options to pick from. I should have known he would pick Nutty Fried Rice over ANYTHING because we adores cashews and stir fries. This dish is full of broccoli, shiitake mushrooms and rice but has an absolutely addicting sauce that is mixed in for the ultimate nuttiness.
My favorite bites definitely included cashews – my favorite nut!
Just a reminder that the key to dishes like this one is to prep ALL your ingredients before you ever start cooking. I also love that this stir fry uses precooked brown rice (Uncle Ben’s) as a timesaver. If you’re allergic to peanuts, sub in almond butter, cashew butter or even sunflower seed butter.
I promise you’re going to go NUTS for this dinner!
