oh nuts.

I love stir fry.  Drop in some rice, add some egg, sesame oil and soy sauce with a bag of frozen vegetables and call it dinner.  Except that there's not a ton of protein in that recipe.  Bummer.  What's a lazy girl to do?  Sometimes I add shrimp but my cheap side fights that more often than not.  My answer to Lazy AND Cheap?  Nuts.  I blend them in the food processor until they're in little pieces (not dust, but not choke-able either) then add them to the rice.  Cashews, almonds, peanuts... it just depends on my mood.  I sometimes add a few extra eggs too.  Dinner.  Done.  Fast.  Cheap.  And the kids like it :)
