Mongolian Beef and $50 gift card giveaway

Mongolian Beef

Ahhhh, another easy and quick dinner curtosey of Sun-Bird Asian Seasonings.

Back to school is in full swing and I am about to pull out my hair. I can’t seem to find any balance. Working, blogging,’s just about to drown me. I think its kinda crazy that my 3rd grader has 2 hours of homework a night. A bit much, don’t you think?

So again, during those really hectic nights when I haven’t really even planned dinner, I know I can count on Sun-Bird for a quick fix. Just like the General Tso’s chicken, this Mongolian Beef was perfect. I would never be able to keep all of the ingredients on hand to make this meal work. I find that to be the problem with me and Asian cooking. So many ingredients go into Asian cooking, they would end up going bad before I got a change to use them all up.

If you are a busy, frazzled Mom like me, give this dish a try. My kids gobbled up the Mongolian Beef and asked for seconds! KID APPROVED!!

I have a few giveaways coming up, I hope you don’t mind!

    The holidays are coming and that money could help!

    Hmmmm…what to do with $50? My first thought is that I would buy homeschooling books for my children, or maybe a new pair of shoes.

    WOW what I would do with the winnings of a gift card. So many things I could do with it but one thing I would do is save it for Black Friday shopping.

  13. 13

    I’d send it to my Daughter in a care package attending college 1500 miles away and tell her to spend it on something she doesn’t need at the mall.

  14. 14

    I’d use it towards holiday shopping.

    This dish looks fantastic! Honestly, if I had an extra $50, it would probably go towards groceries. I’d splurge and get more expensive ingredients.

  106. 106

    I’d donate the $50 to our “Holiday Family” at work. We gather gift certificates at Thanksgiving time. Then at Christmas time we give presents, etc. to the same family.

  107. 107

    $50 would be great for shoes =)

    I would buy some lanterns from HomeGoods that I’ve been eyeing to light up my walk way on Halloween. I LOVE lanterns but can’t justify spending the $ on them so this would take care of that 🙂 Of course after Halloween I would use them in our backyard while it’s still warm enough for our early dusk dinners. GREAT giveaway!!

    I would use it on me. I would love to get a nice haircut, maybe a manicure. Its been a long time.

    I liked you on facebook and posted the nutella hot chocolate recipe. It’s 80 here in Boca, but my sweet princesses love hot chocolate. I can’t believe I never knew how easy it is to make whipped cream! I saw the recipe on pinterest.

    I have a long list of wants and some needs. I think it would depend on my mood when the gift card arrived. But I might do Christmas shopping or buy books or music on itunes.

    Now I will go like sunbird seasoning and follow you on twitter. 🙂
