All you need are some basic ingredients: sliced fresh mushrooms, red bell pepper, snow peas, shrimp, soy sauce, garlic, and sesame seeds are great in a stir fry. You just heat the oil, saute a little garlic in oil, throw in the red pepper, snow peas and mushrooms and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Then just add the shrimp and remaining ingredients and cook until the shrimp is pink (2-4 min) and the veggies are crunchy and you’re good to go. For an extra twist, cook up a little rice or serve with a salad.

There are a variety of good options for prepared sauces and you can add your own magic touch.
Pot luck dinners can especially be fun when there is a mix of cultures. Have everyone make one dish from their home country and explain a bit about it as a way to share the customs and traditions of home.
