Stir Fry Vegetables with Penne

Good Monday evening! How was everyone’s weekend? Mine was pretty good. My mom came to visit us on Saturday and stayed until this afternoon. Mom and I did some shopping, Ken and I took her out to dinner Saturday evening and to breakfast this morning and yesterday we did a BBQ. Ken smoked a Boston Butt Roast and I made sides while mom helped out in the kitchen with getting stuff together or getting dishes cleaned. It was a good time. I wish she lived closer so we could get together more often.

Today I am sharing a simple¬†Asian¬†style recipe that I threw together a few weeks ago. It’s delicious and it’s packed with veggies! I hope you enjoy this recipe. But first, here’s a few photos from the weekend.
