Easy Stir Fry

In the area of the country where my husband and I are from there is a large Asian population with lots of wonderful, authentic Asian restaurants. Oh, how we miss them!! Where we live now our options are limited to none. So occasionally I make us a dinner of stir fry with a few easy sides from the store to help with the cravings!

This recipe is from Down-Home Cooking without the Down-Home Fat, so it is a relatively low-fat meal. That helps make up for those fattening egg rolls!!:)

Teriyaki Beef & Broccoli
1 lb. steak (eye of round) trimmed of fat*
1 (16 oz.) bag frozen broccoli pieces, thawed**
2 medium onions, cut into quarters and separated
1 (4 oz.) can mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1 tbls. minced garlic
1/2 cup Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste & Glaze***
1. Cut the steak across the grain into very thin slices
2. Cook the steak, broccoli, onions, mushrooms and garlic over high heat in a large saute pan.
3. Cover the pan and cook the steak for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Remove the pan from heat; drain juices from pan.
5. Stir in the teriyaki glaze, coating the meat and vegetables.
6. Serve hot.
Yields: 5 (1 cup) servings

*I usually use steak, but tonight I tried pork chops and they were good, too.
**Tonight I tried using a bag of mixed stir fry veggies and I liked that also.
***I use whatever brand, this is just what the book called for.

Just grab some easy sides and you're good to go!

This looks so good. We love stir-fry here.

And frozen egg favorite snack, ever! But I force myself to only buy them once or twice a year. Otherwise, I'd eat them every day.

Sounds great! I make a "freezer meal" recipe called Pepper Steak. It's an Asian theme with green onions, beef, soy etc. and it is excellent. I will post that recipe on the blog soon - bet you guys would like it too!

So while I was posting my previous comment, it occurred to me - I have already posted that one on the blog. Doh! Here you go:

How far are you from Huntsville? There are some nice Asian choices there. Your stir fry sounds yummy. I make it for myself every now and then too.

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
