Sunday Afternoon Stir-Fry

Several days ago Jeff Shyluk posted a recipe for quinoa chicken stir fry. Intrigued, I actually ventured into a grocery store and purchased ingredients for my own version of Jeff's creation. Rarely do I attempt anything more ambitious than tacos, but Jeff's recipe certainly looked simple enough to try. With Sylvia supervising to ensure I didn't burn the house down, I sallied forth, following Jeff's instructions as closely as possible.
Jeff's recipe calls for peas, but Sylvia and I aren't fussy about them so I substituted yellow bell pepper and green onions. Would these spicy flavours complement the soya sauce and minced ginger required in Jeff's original creation, or would they completely imbalance the dish?
Well, the finished product didn't look terribly appetizing, but to my palate - and Sylvia's - it certainly tasted quite fine. I think it's safe to say that I can now reliably prepare nearly a dozen dishes:

1. Tacos
2. Quinoa chicken stir fry
3. Bacon and eggs with toast
4. Cereal
5. Fish and chips
6. Spaghetti with meat sauce (i.e. leftover meat from the tacos plus store-bought red sauce)
7. Grilled cheese sandwich
8. Garlic cheese toast
9. BLT sandwich

Thanks for the recipe, Jeff!

You forgot about that heart-attack-on-a-sheet dish you make.

The one with the potatoes, cheese, sour cream, etc.
