Veggie Stir-Fry

Have you ever gotten really drunk, and then discovered the Snapchat filters? The face-swap one in particular. I mean, I knew this existed (I don’t live under a rock), but I’d never used it before. I laughed so hard that I actually full on started crying. It was a mess.

Also, the filter that makes you more attractive? Holy shit – I’ve never been so mesmerized by my own face.


Any one else grow up in the suburbs? I live in the city now, and am spoiled rotten when it comes to restaurants. I literally live a block off of “Eat Street.” So last night I was visiting a girlfriend in the suburbs, and we decided to go out to Red Lobster (before drinking something like 3 bottles of wine each). Now, don’t get me wrong… Red Lobster is fine. I mean, it’s food. I really wanted seafood, and we were in the burbs, so what do you do? I feel like a snobby city hipster when I say these things. Seriously… they give you a plate of food that could feed a family of 4 at least, but first they shove all those delicious cheddar biscuits down your throat. My friend and I ate like 4 bites of our actual meals. And the waitress asked if we wanted dessert. Um, no.

Of course, this meant that we had awesome drunk food when we got the drunchies at 1am. I still have leftovers.

So today I’m not feeling great. I’m not as hungover as I should be, but food has been somewhat repulsive to me. I threw together this veggie stir-fry, which actually ended up being vegan. What. The. Fuck. I want you all to know that I ate a BLT for lunch. Also, I didn’t even eat this stir-fry. I finished making it, took one bite, photographed it, and threw it in a container for lunch tomorrow.

After I’m done here, I’m going to eat a bowl of ice cream in my underwear, while watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Then, I might do a little Yin with my cat.

I hope you’re all enjoying your Sunday as much as I am.


Veggie Stir-Fry

1 sad scoop of leftover rice

1/4 onion, chopped

A handful of mushrooms (5-10ish button mushrooms), sliced

1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

A handful of spinach

Green onion

Soy sauce

Worcestershire Sauce (Which I just learned has fish in it, making this dish not vegan at all! Ha!)

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Saute onion, mushrooms, and green pepper in olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook until mushrooms brown slightly. Add some salt and pepper. Throw in the rice, spinach, and a few dashes of soy and Worcestershire sauce. Stir everything together really well, adding more salt and pepper as needed. Once the spinach as wilted, and the rice is heated through, you’re done! Just scoop it into a bowl, and top with some chopped green onion. You could even make this into fried rice by adding a scrambled egg.

Pro tip: Reheat a scoop of this for breakfast, and add an over easy egg on top.
