What to do when you have a bag of vegetables and no plan

My friend Steve came over with a bag of vegetables, and we managed to make an awesome dinner of kale stuff, Brussels sprouts, stir fry and rice.

Make some rice in whatever way you usually make rice.

Brussels sprouts sauteed in butter, with salt and pepper. A classic, but delicious.

Vegetable stir fry:
Onion (diced)
Garlic (minced)
Olive oil
Sesame oil
Fish sauce
Sweet chili sauce
Soy sauce

Everything is pretty much to taste. This is how stir fry works!
Saute onions and garlic in oil. Add broccoli. Add asparagus. Add sesame oil, fish sauce, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce and some water. Cook until broccoli and asparagus are ready.

Kale with stuff:
Onion (diced)
Garlic (minced)
Olive oil
Chicken broth - 1 can
Dijon mustard - 1 tbsp
Apple cider vinegar - just a quick dash
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Kale - as much as you can fit into the pot
Lingonberry preserves - 1 tbsp

In a medium pot, saute onions and garlic in oil. Add broth, vinegar, mustard, sugar. Bring to a boil. Add kale. Cover and let simmer for 5 minutes (or until kale is done). Add preserves and stir in. Serve over rice!
