Five Spice Pork Lo Mein

Hope everyone had a great weekend, and a great Father’s Day!  On Saturday we went to pick strawberries.  It was a great time, and we came home with almost 13 pounds of them.  Stay tuned later in the week for lots of strawberry recipes!  I am still trying to come up with something else to make to use up the last pound.

In the mean time, I have a great quick dinner for you. We love stir-fry here.  This is a super easy, but really good one.  We found this one years ago, and it is still in our rotation! It is super flavorful, and makes great leftovers as well!
