A Simple Stir Fry

I have been thinking lately of “Fast Food”. No one wBpnts to spend hours in the kitchen after a busy day out. I am, by no means, a saint. I spent must of today out and my husband was working late. Here is what I did to make a quick and easy meal!

I set my Ipad up in the kitchen with a classic Iview Who Dunnit? To keep me entertained. I set two of the birds up for company and to give them fresh food!

I cut up a frozen onion and put that in the wok to fry while I cut off some frozen turmeric and ginger. Then I threw in some lemon grass powder, chopped up some chili and capsicum and put all that on to cook with a little Himalayan salt. I put in cut up broccoli (including stalks) and unpeeled thinly sliced carrot.

Raised Garden made with Pallets

I saw some really cool blogs about making raised gardens with pallets. These Youtube tutorials were from America.   I wondered if the same idea would work in  Australia – could we get free pallets, would the council be ok with me having them in the front yard,  would they be viable?

I did a quick Google search and immediately found an advert in Gumtree for 50 free pallets near where I live.

Pallets are a lot larger than they appear on the computer screen.  They are also a lot heavier!  I am  very lucky to have a wonderful brother who has a removal truck.  He even picked them up and brought them to me for free.  Here I must mention my equally wonderful sister-in-Law who helped Tim move the pallets whilst I was busy.
