Quick Stir Fry

Stir Fry is delicious, but the really nice thing is that it doesn't really require a recipe.  Chop up some veggies, an onion, heat a little oil, add a bit of soy sauce and seasonings (I like white pepper, black pepper, and ground ginger), and you can have a quick, delicious vegetarian dish.  If you have older children, who are capable of cooking, they can learn to do this, as well. 

Try shredding some cabbage, thinly slicing some carrots and celery, and fixing this easy stir fry, next time you are at a loss for something simple.  Make plain white rice (minute rice, if you are pressed for time, but if not, basic white rice is cheaper), and serve your veggies over the rice.

On my busier  days, I often leave the older kids to fix their own quick dinners.  Ages 12 and up are fairly capable in the kitchen in my home.  The younger set, I handle.  Equip your kids in the kitchen, so that they don't grow up as fast food junkies, but rather, as capable cooks, who can whip up something out of seemingly nothing, at a moment's notice.
