Make Use of Your Summer Vegetables with a Skillet Stir-Fry

At the farmers market this week, there was so much gorgeous Summer produce — okra, fresh corn, English peas, tomatoes, zucchini — that I bought it all. Then I got home and wondered: What should I do with this Summer bounty?

that looks like something that i've done in the past - i love to take veggies and make a nice little steamer or stir fry - i usually keep it to spinach, cherry/grape tomatoes and broccoli - and lately i've added in mushrooms, water chestnuts, and the occasional snow pea
