It was Saturday morning. Usually we all went out somewhere but this Saturday was a bit different. My husband went to buy a bike and all of its gear. Apparently he was into this healthy lifestyle (NOT). His office moved to Redfern area and it will be easier for him to ride a bike rather than taking a public transport. He was driving for couple of weeks but then he decided that it will be easier, economical and convenience to ride a bike instead. Plus, he goes to work at 7 o’clock in the morning, which means that lower energy and gas bill (he showered there) and he comes home 5 PM sharp. It is really helpful for me of course with the handful toddler and crying baby.

So, I prepared the Stir Fried Broccolini with Oyster Sauce paired with Cashew Chicken with Vege as the risen awareness of a “healthy lifestyles”. The verdict from the carnivores, they absolutely love it and finished them all in a day. You could absolutely throw any vegetables available in the fridge and mix it with the stir fry. The key is to roasted your own cashew nut. It tastes so much better then the roasted and salted nut available in supermarket.

  • 1/2 tomato,cut into wedges
  • 3 cloves garlic, mince
