Easy Stir Fry

So I talked to the chick I met on my bike the other day. We're talking and it's a little awkward, but what do you expect when you call someone for the first time who you picked up while biking home from school? I ask her if she'd like to go out sometime and she tells me she has a boyfriend. Really?

"You seem really cool and I just want to be upfront with you" she says, "but my friends and I are trying to meet new people, so you if you're cool with that you should come out with us." 

"Sure, yeah, that sounds cool... I need some friends outside of school." Blah blah blah, ha! I have friends outside of school. In fact, I have many many friends. What I would like is someone to share myself with on a slightly more intimate level. 

Not that I'm terribly upset- really- but as a PSA, when a guy asks for your number (unless of course it's because you're partners for a school project or something along those lines), you can assume that it's because he's interested in seeing if there's any chemistry and would like to go out. It's fine if you have a boyfriend. You can polity decline if you'd like or you can give him your number, but if you give him your number, let him know when you're giving him your number that you have a boyfriend and are only looking for friends. Otherwise he'll be disappointed. 

Easy Stir Fry

Sesame Oil

6 Cloves Garlic
6 inch piece of Ginger
2 Serrano Peppers

3 Carrots
1/2 Cabbage
1/2 Green Bell Pepper
1/2 Onion
~5 oz. Mushrooms

Few squirts of Soy Sauce
Fewer squirts of Fish Sauce
Few globs of Oyster Sauce

3/4 lb. Shrimp

1 bunch Cilantro
Juice of 1 Lime

Heat the Sesame Oil in a wok. While it is heating, shred the Ginger, Garlic, and Serrano Peppers with the shredder attachment for your Cuisinart Food Processor. Fry in the oil. While mixture is frying, shred the Carrots, Cabbage, Green Bell Pepper, Onion, and Mushrooms. After about 10 minutes of frying, add the new mixture of Carrots, Cabbage, Bell Pepper, Onion, and Mushrooms. Cook for a moment and add the Soy Sauce, Fish Sauce, and Oyster Sauce. Add the Shrimp and cook just long enough to turn them pink. I overcooked my Shrimp. Stir in the Cilantro and Lime and serve with Rice or Noodles.  With a food processor the whole thing should take 20 minutes to make and it's really tasty.
