BM #96 Week 1 Day 1 - 

Welcome to the New year 2019. 
This year the first week of BM, I have chosen to highlight some easy dinner time dishes which are popular with my family. 

In fact these days, any noodles/spaghetti which is served at home is being cooked by my older one. She has started enjoying cooking and she says it is a stress buster for her. Good for me, right?

the same stir fry can be served on a bed of steamed rice but my kids love it with noodles and so that is how I am presenting it here.
