Quick Thai cashew stir-fry {vegan, gluten-free}

As it reaches Sunday evening, I again ask myself where the weekend went. I feel like I have hardly been at home yet I haven’t been grocery shopping nor have I done anything substantial. Where does the time go? I’m sitting on the couch listening to a Steely Dan vinyl and drinking a glass of red wine dreading tomorrow. I have a bad case of Mondayitis. 

I was saying to my sister-in-law (can I call her that yet?) today that I had no idea what to post this week. I mentioned I had this cashew stir-fry as a back-up but felt it wasn’t substantial or exciting enough to share with you. She told me to go for it and I’m glad she did.

Also, how cute are these Japanese bowls gifted to me by my brother- and sister-in-law? I LOVE them.
