Shrimp and Asparagus Noodle Salad

Next in our series of ‘overlapping meals‘, here is a wonderful Asian inspired main dish salad that is quick to prepare on a hot summer evening.  I love this cross between a pasta dish and a salad!  This was inspired by Vietnamese Noodle Salads, but it draws on similar sauce and techniques from our Pad […]

Vegetable Stir Fry with Orange Ginger Sauce

“All of these vegetables need to be eaten before they go bad!!”  Sound familiar?  We went to visit my man’s parents for Mother’s Day and had just gotten my organic produce box the day before we left.   I contemplated taking the whole box with me, but it wouldn’t have fit in the overhead compartment, so […]
