Come to the Table
The simplest way to show your people they matter is to gather at the table over a yummy meal. But do you ever feel like you’re in a dinner rut? I know I do.
Don’t get me wrong, I love “Taco Night” but sometimes you just gotta shake things up. Serve something a bit more unexpected, and, dare I say, exotique! The gingery scent of this dish sizzling on the stove top is intoxicating! So, skip the Asian take-out and delight your people with this healthy and hearty all-in-one meal.
That means “Delicious!” in Japanese, y’all!
