Oooo man the past 24 hours has been a bit mental hasn’t it? Unfortunately it’s starting to feel like earth shattering shocks are becoming the norm these days. 2016 will probably go down in my memory as a pretty tumultuous year to say the least. But for one wonderful thing which I’m going to focus on now because I want to share some joy and that is the birth of my new nephew last night. Yet to be named but honestly the cutest little bean you’ve ever seen.

This stir fry is like a bit of summer in a bowl. Which is nice when it’s November and the temperature has dropped. What’s good about it is that it’s bright and colourful and makes you feel good but it’s got a little kick of chilli to warm you up and a sticky sweetness that screams comfort food. Just what you need to make life a little better.
