Wok A Wok A Wokka

 What puts a smile on your face when you think about dinner?
I thawed a half a pound of shrimp, cleaned them and my husband and I looked at one another and asked what we thought we should do with them.
 How about a stir fry, he piped up.
Sounds delicious, I said.... let's DO IT!
So we sliced up three colors of bell peppers and started them in the wok.
 We also had on hand, some fresh ginger since I use it in my smoothies.
A little goes a long way with ginger, but still... we should have added more and will the next time.
But of course!
What kitchen doesn't have a little onion laying around just waiting to go into your next favorite dish?
Oh ya....
Grind up a bit of that, Baby!
 Jalapeños too, for those who love a bit of heat.
 Then a dash of soy sauce.... preferably the low sodium.
 Pop in the shrimp.

 And start them cooking towards the level of doneness you prefer.
 And a bit of thickener to keep it all happening together.

 You remembered to start the rice, right?
Minute Rice works well for us and gets just the right amount of sticky.
 Now, plop some of that rice on a plate and a nice heaping spoonful of your stir fry from the wok.
and WHALA.
It's sure to put a smile on you and the faces of loved ones.
Pretty healthy too!

When it comes to cooking in a wok, there's really no right or wrong.
Simply cook up the ingredients you love and it's bound to taste great.
