Happy Labor Day! I hope you all have fun plans for the holiday! My family and I are going boating today. I am super excited because I haven’t gone all summer! It should be great:)

If you don’t have dinner plans for tonight, I have a great recipe for you! Do you like stir-fry?? I love it. The great thing about stir-fry is that you can add so many different vegetables. By changing up the vegetables, you can have a whole different meal! Here is my favorite stir-fry recipe:

Make a sauce of 2 cups water, the seasoning packet from the ramen, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 TBSP cornstarch. If the flavor is not strong enough or you prefer to omit the ramen, season with beef bouillon. Stir to dissolve the cornstarch. Stir sauce into meat and veggies. Continue to stir til sauce comes to a boil and thickens slightly.
