And best of all, very simple and quick to make!

-Heat 2 tsp. of canola oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium. Whisk eggs and add to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally to break up eggs, until set. Remove from pan. Add remaining 2 tsp. oil to the skillet and then increase the heat to medium-high. Stir in the frozen vegetables; cook for 5 minutes or until tender.

- Add stir-fry sauce and crushed red pepper to the skillet (very very little). Stir in rice and heat through, then mix in the cooked eggs. Let your kids squeeze on lime juice, to give the dish extra flavor.

Amazing Bird Nest!

When we took a trip back to Rochester NY over the July 4th weekend, we've found this abandoned bird nest right next to my daughter's God parents' house! I was so amazed by how perfect they are and how much work the birds had put into their lovely home! Nature itself is just so amazing!
