    Looks delicious and healthy. Stir fried vegetables are always my favourite. My family loves them.

    What a tasty stir-fry! Sounds delicious alongside the chops and garlic mash! I bet it would be good over rice too.

    • Thanks, Reeni! I just couldn’t ignore the Cavekids’ pleas for garlic-mashed taters, otherwise it would have been steamed rice next to the chops and veggies. But, the potatoes worked surprisingly well.

    Wow! What a pic with pouring the soy sauce, thumbs up!
    BTW finally the Honest Award post is out! I know a bit late but we had to concert and I had net problems. Not very nice!

    • Wow! Thank you so much, Barbara!! Don’t feel bad about your posting frequency … that’s what got me going on doing three in 24 hours. Shouldn’t the blogging world be a guilt-free zone??? 😉
