Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry


My mother in law has been so helpful with our journey to help kids. She has watched Cooper while we attended classes, she’s came to events, she’s cheered, she’d totally stepped outside her comfort zone at some times. She has supported every decision we have made, even if she hasn’t always agreed with them. I’m thankful for all she’s done to help. She moved here from another state. She lived about 6 hours away. After her husband had passed, she eventually decided she was needed here. At the time I thought nah, we’re ok, but we’d love to have her…but over time I’ve seen how much I really did need her help and support. God knows what he’s doing, for sure.

While we’ve been on this journey there’s been days here and there we’ve needed her. I’ve had to call her last minute and ask her to drop everything to rush over to get Coop off the bus, or I needed her help to do something. The last 10 weeks I’ve had to ask her to come sit with Cooper one night during the week, in order to do our classes to work with kids. She’d come over and stay for hours and cook everyone dinner.

My mother is great too. She helps out when she can, but my mother has health issues and also works a full time job. I’ll say that while dealing with my own mother’s health issues, my other mother stepped in and did whatever she could do. She’s even offered to help with my mother while she was sick. I’m so lucky to have two great moms. I could never wish for more. God has blesses me.

This recipe is NOT mine. My mother in law made this recipe on her own, from different recipes she found. I’m pretty picky about my Chinese food…and this is a good homemade version. I really like it. Make it and serve with any kind of rice you’d like. It’s all good! Thanks for the recipe!!
