Asparagus, Mushroom and Tomato Stir Fry


When Arielle and I arrived at my friend Kelly’s house, we had in hand some asparagus Arielle had cut at Farmer Kim’s farm earlier in the day.  It was going to be the star of dinner after our Saturday hike.

I won’t go into detail about the hike other than that we did a lot of climbing and hiking on rocks since we lost the trail about a third of the way up the mountain.  It was slow going and a pain in the neck  – or as it turned out – calf.  We ended the day at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, where Arielle entertained us with her crane technique 🙂

Hawk Mountain is beautiful and has some great hikes (which we did not do this trip, but have in the past and will again soon!).

When we returned to Kelly’s, I pretty much took over her kitchen to make dinner, I am glad she didn’t seem to mind too much (she did make the rice, so she wasn’t totally kicked out).  It was odd cooking in someone else’s house, but it also gave me great pleasure.  I am surprised that making food for people has become one of my favorite things to do.

  1. It looks so good, but I would have to leave the mushrooms out! Thanks for linking to my blog 🙂

  2. I tried this recipe for dinner tonight. It’s definitely a keeper!!! Both my husband and I loved it. The picture above doesn’t capture how bright and delightful the colors are. Thanks for sharing!!!

    • I am so glad you enjoyed it. Sorry about the pics, I was working in a friend’s kitchen with darker lighting than I am used to. But then again, she let me loose in her kitchen!

Let me know what you think of this post, and if you try the recipe, please let me know how it was and any suggestions you have. Thanks, Andrea
