Pork (or Chicken) Stir Fry

My husband loves Chinese food and had been craving some when I had planned to make stir fry. So he was excited when I told him that it was for dinner.

Since I don’t have much time to cook dinner before I have it on the table, I cut the pieces smaller, especially the broccoli. My husband does not like broccoli but eats it when I cut it into smaller pieces.

The Wee One made chopsticks out of two spoons during dinner to scoop up the food better. It was so funny! (I wish I got a picture of how he ate dinner.)

This meal can be adapted to your likes.
