Chinese Stir Fried Mixed Vegetables

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been an emotional baggage. I am slowly coming to terms with my loss but I think as time goes by, it will be better. I am extremely grateful for the family and friends support that I have had over this difficult period. It is also amazing that I have had emails and words of encouragement from bloggers whom I have never even met before, all giving me emotional support ... to this I thank each and every one of you.

I will continue to keep blogging as it is something I love doing. My hubby has always said that I tend to go overboard at times, especially over the weekend as I may even go to the extend of trying out 3 new recipes in one day. He would always be my official "taster" especially when it comes to savoury foods. I had also been cooking a bit more lately just to indulge his stomach.

I will definitely be coming back to my regular blogging schedule, so stay tuned for more recipes. In the meantime, I leave you with this quick stir fried vegetable recipe.
