Yesterday Chris said “I really want something good to eat.” Which is code for, you’re going to have to cook something different than you usually! Don’t get me wrong, I know he loves my cooking but every now and then we all want something different. So I was searching around on Pinterest and I showed him a Mongolian Beef recipe and he says “I want that!” I saw that it had been pinned a million times so I figured that was a good sign. So I commenced to whipping this recipe up and it wasn’t hard at all. I think it’s a great beef recipe to bring out when you want to impress your hubby or you’re trying to catch a man…lol! Just playing…. well not really.
