Stir fries are also a common occurrence in our house. They're a great way of using up produce before it goes bad, and makes for some pretty great leftovers with rice or noodles. We literally just cut veggies into similar sizes, fry them up in some sesame + canola oil, and season with a combination of whatever we have on hand (soy sauce, mirin, rice vinegar, hoisin, etc.).
While we're thinking about pickles, you've got to try this five-ingredient pickle-brined chicken sandwich. Forget Chick-fil-A and Popeye's, you can make your own delicious fried chicken sandwich if you've got some pickle brine on hand. Just plan ahead a little bit and make some buttermilk when you're gonna get frying. Or buy some buttermilk and bake a batch of biscuits over the weekend. You can even have homemade condiments that taste >= the fast food chain's! Or kick things up a notch and baste your beautiful fried chicken with spices to make Nashville hot chicken. When you cook for you, your food will taste delicious :)

Feel like frying something completely vegan? Go for falafel and all the fixings. I hesitate sharing this recipe with y'all because this has become one of our regular potluck contributions and I want it to stay that way haha. Our veggie friends love it just as much as those who eat meat. I actually triple the falafel ball recipe, the cabbage salad and tahini sauce quantities make plenty (trust me).
