This was pretty good--definately better the 2nd day--reheated. I just felt like there was something missing--we couldn't put our finger on it. It was definately pretty--with all the different colors. I felt that I could have used a bit more direction on exactly HOW to cut the veggies--like for the carrots--i did matchsticks and that worked out. It also didn't say HOW to cut the green onions. Typically in a stir fry--i cut them longways but since they were added at the end, i sliced them? Pretty easy, okay dish, with the most complicated thing being all the cutting.
Excellent! Big hit at our house
