I started blogging to push me out of my comfort zone with cooking. I needed to try new things, explore and fail some. However, I haven’t tried anything too adventurous just yet. I decided to make something I normally wouldn’t make for dinner. I stink at making Asian food. I’ve tried and failed. Over and over. When I saw this recipe on Skinny Taste it seemed simple enough. I actually pulled this one off! Ha! I added broccoli and shredded carrots to it as well. Modifications have been made to the recipe. I hope y’all enjoy as much as we did.
