IMG_2880Chicken and broccoli are mainstays at our house…so what could be better than the two together in a simple stir fry.  If you prefer, feel free to add more veges, or change up theIMG_2866 chicken for beef, shrimp or tofu.  Sometimes when I pull out the wok…I also pull out all the things in the fridge that I want to use up.  But tonight I just wanted to keep it simple, and stayed with the broccoli.  And that was fine with Trevor, because he doesn’t like it when I get too crazy with all the extra “stuff”.  When the kids were little, I told them they would get grand prize if they cleared everything on their plate.  Well, grand prize never really consisted of much, if anything at all.  But to this day, I still hand out the infamous and imaginary grand prize to the one who likes my meal the best.  It was a dead heat tie for grand prize tonight! Everyone went for seconds.
