Asian Stirfy with Sesame Beef and Quinoa

Posted Apr 05 2010 12:00am

Today was a long day at school.  I don’t know if it was just getting back into it or the fact the heat was on and it was 83 degrees outside, but I was uncomfortable all day.  My back hurt and I just felt bad.  It was the first day I was really uncomfortable for the whole day – I know I should not complain, after 39 pretty easy weeks.

So after school I came home and thought about laying down, but how do you lay down when it is summer outside!  Instead I kept my plans to walk and catch up with Katie!  We did a 3 mile loop (only stopping for the bathroom once!)  and I felt much better!  It was good to be moving.  I think spinning will be in order in the morning to keep my body moving.  We will see if I can wake up…

So after our walk, I came home and got set on making dinner.  We are using everything in our pantry and fridge until Wednesday because I am not going to the store before then.   Tonight we had stirfry and quinoa which was made mostly from pantry ingredients.  Here is the random recipe I made up similar to one I have seen in Eating Well Magazine :

Asian Stirfy with Sesame Beef and Quinoa

Beef for Brady:

  • 1/2 lb. of beef (lean ground sirloin is what I used)
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp. teryaki
  • 1 tsp. chili garlic sauce (super hot)


  • 1 bag of Asian veggies from the frozen section (we had these in the freezer)
  • 1 can water chesnuts
  • 1 can bamboo shoots
  • 1 tiny head of cabbage, shaved
  • 2 tbsp. chili garlic sauce (hot!!)
  • 2 tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • sesame seeds

Now we are headed to bed in the thunderstorm.  Hopefully it rains tonight so it is nice for tomorrow when I have recess duty.
