One day I had off from work. My Partner was at work & I was bored. I had some left over veggies from the farmers market. So i decided to get creative. Every time I do this, Everybody raves about the end result. but when asked for the recipe, i never have one because i never measure, nor write down what I am using. I just go with whatever feels good in my soul. This recipe seems like alot of steps but it really isn't. I decided to type this recipe and take pics as I was making it. this way I can make it again as well as share it with others. I hope you enjoy
