Stir-fry asparagus with ginger mushrooms.

During my shopping expedition at AJ’s I could not resist buying asparagus and fresh ginger. I did not have a recipe in mind, but could not pass them up.

Last night I wanted to have some chicken with my new Lemon-Orange Horseradish. Marinate was the only thing that came to mind. Refrigerator door open ingredients started to come out.

I had fun and the vote I received from my little guy was:” Mom… I really like this recipe and I can get used to this new flavor.” Could not help but to hug him and kiss him.

My recipe for the stir fried is an adaptation from the fresh off the press “Fine Cooking” magazine. Not having all the ingredients in hand I had to make some  substitutions.

A simple Jasmine white rice was the perfect to be served along.
