When I am in a rush, and I so often seem to be in a rush, I've developed the habit of making a three ingredient stir-fry. I toss into the pan some olive oil, some mystery meat, and 2 veggies (okay, okay, that's four ingredients!) I keep the veggies in one spot, the meat fish and poultry in another, and it's genuine fast food. I may also toss in onion or garlic, spices, salt and pepper. Today, lamb, garden mushrooms, and red cabbage. Yum. NOTHING else, so salt or pepper or anything--tastes great just as it is. Nutritious, not very fattening, and quick.
