For lunch one day a few weeks ago Mr. Mike whipped up theses Teriyaki bowls. He always seems to find just the right spices. He found a little bowl of left over pineapple juice mixed with a little cornstarch to thicken. After he was finished he asked what the surprised ingredient was. I guessed it right a way sweet potato. The veggies were perfect with just a little crunch. What a colorful and happening lunch.
