Orange Ginger Beef with Broccoli

last week my wonderful neighbor gave us a loaf of homemade banana nut bread. it is delicious and we have been enjoying it all weekend. thanks neighbor!!
this morning, i warmed a piece of the banana nut bread and had a naval orange to go with it. it held me over past 11am - no small feat for my tummy:)

i cooked all day long today and my feet were tired. for dinner, i made something super quick and easy but very tasty. i based this recipe on another one i found out of the latest issue of clean eating. in the magazine, it's called beef & broccoli orange stir-fry. i added some ginger and increased the amount of sou sauce a bit. i also threw in more vegetables and it was delicious. E said he liked it too.
