You could serve this dish up a few different ways. You could treat it like fajitas and serve it with some tortillas, sour cream and fresh made pico de gallo (tomatoes, white onion, jalepeno, cilantro and lime juice)! Or you could go for a “bowl” and serve it over rice. What I decided on was some rice noodles that I tossed in a little mixture of lime juice (1tbsp), cocoa aminos (1/4 cup) and fresh ginger (2 tsp).

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
