Adventures in Bok Choy

First, a pre-dinner snack.

almond butter

Whole wheat bread, almond butter, and cinnamon.

Then on to adventures in baby bok choy!

I love bok choy! I love how delicate the baby bok choy is too. 🙂

Bok Choy & Shrimp Stir Fry

Baby bok choy


Lemon juice

Red pepper flakes

Chicken broth

Garlic, large slices.


Low sodium soy sauce

Sesame oil

Sesame seeds

Black pepper

Wash bok choy thoroughly (may help to soak in bowl of water- dirt will sink to bottom), then chop into bite sized pieces. Cook shrimp in wok or pan until just turn pink. Top with lemon juice and red pepper flakes. Set aside.


Saute bok choy just until it wilts. Splash with chicken broth. Add in ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, and black pepper. Add shrimp back in. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

I also had some chicken vegetable soup as an appetizer.


And Mocha Almond Purely Decadent for dessert.

And there ya have it.

By the way, I ended up liking My Sister’s Keeper. I was surprised. I it helped that I tried to think of the movie and book as two separate things. (I knew it wouldn’t be the same as the book, so I pretended it was a story I didn’t know…it sort of worked).

I won’t say too much so I don’t ruin it for anyone, but it was definitely different than the book. Same premise, but some of the details were different. The end was totally different. Still sad, but not as shocking in my opinion. I did like the way they approached telling the story by telling it from a variety of view points.

But of course, the book still remains WAY on top for me 🙂

    I want to see that movie and I don’t. I hate sad movies, but I want to see it…

    Love the recipe with bok choy – we tried it for the first time a few weeks ago and I would love to experiment with it again.

    i don’t think i’d like the movie (i like gun & bomb movies haha) but i think my taste in books is a little more varied. although i never cry over them so i always feel awkward reading really sad ones

      I never cried reading a book until I read that one….

    I loved the movie! I had a good cry for a solid 90 minutes! 😉

    I’m glad you ended up liking the movie! I tend to always enjoy the books more than the movie versions, and that was the same in this case. But still a good flick. 🙂

    My sister’s keeper is a great movie. Amazing story.
