Halibut & Sweet Vegetable Stir-fry

So our lovely neighbor Bob came over the other day and brought us some freshly caught halibut. After much comtemplation, should I fry it, make tacos, grill it...I decided a nice stir-fry sounds amazing. And it was

Halibut & Sweet Vegetable Stir-Fry

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 large sweet Onion, roughly chopped
2 cups grated carrots
2 cups eggplant, peeled and cubed
2 cups zucchini, peeled and cubed
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup red, orange & yellow sweet peppers, sliced
2 lb. wild-caught halibut (this is an estimate since Bob didn't package it in neat, organized packaging)
Juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon Herbes de Provence
salt and pepper to taste

Place oil in a large wok and heat. Add vegetables and cook until almost tender. Add the halibut, lemon juice and seasonings and saute until halibut is flaky. Serve up with a lovely salad and dinners on the table!

Life as an Alaskan

Life as an Alaskan can be quite exciting.  You have wildlife in your yard to watch out for, berries to be harvested and preserved, game to find and fill the freezer with, along with the everyday living most lower 48ers experience.  Since moving up here in May of 2010, our family has made a lot of changes, and continue to make changes, from our “normal” way of living in “outside” (the Alaskan term for anywhere in the States other than Alaska).  I’m hoping to show through how exciting life can be when you free yourself from the captivity of normalcy and embrace God’s wonder around you. I pray that you join me on our journey through the life God has planned for us!
