I can't believe I have gone down to one post a week. I am truly ashamed of myself now. I have tons of pictures and recipes to share. But at the moment, life is in a lull. And if you blog, you know each post requires three folds of creativity: good food, good pictures, and something to say.
Before I share the fantastic recipe for this chicken, mushroom, and green bean stir fry, I thought I'd sum up the Furry Scurry (ya know, from a couple of weeks ago) in pictures.
Euma waiting by the front door - so excited to get going!
Soooooo many people scurrying the two miles. About 10,000 people and 5,000 dogs showed up!
Some adorable bulldog with a tiny hat. Next year Euma will have a costume of her very own.

A crazy lady participating in the pet-owner look alike contest. If she really is channeling Cruella DeVille then I am very afraid for those puppies!

Merut (as in myself) trying to maintain composure while restraining a very hyper Euma.
Three hours of straight walking + 15,000 dogs and humans + 2 mile walk = no energy to get up and go outside to pee.
Euma would like to thank everyone who donated to her cause. She can't wait to do it again! In particular, she wants to give a shout-out to Babette at Babette Feasts. Euma was tickled silly when she found that one of our blog readers chipped in! Check out Babette's blog and tell her thanks for us!

Really, this is just a regular ol' stir fry recipe. Add more of what you like, less of what you don't like. Season the sauce to give it extra kick, or leave it alone. Stir fry is just about the easiest thing to make ever. Serve over rice.
