My twins birthday is on Halloween however because it falls on a weekday this year it makes it sort of hard to have a birthday party because the kids are in school and then they want to go trick-or-treating or families have plans. So we decided to do a small party here at the house yesterday and they were allowed to pick out what they wanted for dinner. Carly wanted tortellini and Liam wanted hamburgers. But I told them that they had to agree on what they wanted. Carly hates hamburgers and Liam hates tortellini but they both love Chinese food. So they compromised and we came up with a menu of Beef with Broccoli, egg rolls and pot stickers (cake and ice cream too of course!).
So mommy went looking on Pinterest for a recipe for Beef with Broccoli and after looking through a couple of different recipes settled on this one from Rainy Day Gal because it looked easy enough and didn’t require any weird ingredients.
I doubled the recipe to make 8 servings instead of four and added a teaspoon of ground ginger to the marinade and it was PERFECT. In fact everyone said that I needed to put it in my tried and true recipe folder (I use Evernote to organize my recipes and just about my entire life!). We tossed frozen egg rolls in the oven and heated up frozen potstickers on the stove. I don’t have a wok, so I used my electric skillet and it was just fine!
The little party was a great sucess and the kids had a great time.
