I need to use my veggies before they go bad!

I really did…. and it was a success!  One thing that I hate the most – buying veggies and then they go bad because I forgot that they were in the bottom drawer, or I bought too much.  Last night was one of those “Oh crap… I forgot about this veggie drawer!” nights. I had to use a yellow squash, asparagus, and portabella caps before they had to be trashed.  So I scrambled to figure out what to make.  I pulled out my go to- Basmati rice and made that using my rice steamer.  After dicing all of my veggies, I marinated them in italian salad dressing.  I first sautéed the yellow squash, then added the asparagus, and then the portabella mushrooms.  After all of the veggies were sautéed and the rice was finished, I poured both into a large bowl and mixed well.  We added a pinch of salt and ….. Voila! Dinner.  Very yummy, and it only takes about 20-30 mins.
