Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I must say it seems like my days are running into each other with all of these extracurricular activities.

That brings me to this Sweet Stir-Fry Shrimp-N-Chili meal that can be made if you are pressed for time.
This recipe is so easy to make and requires very little ingredients. I bet you have at least half of the ingredients in your pantry already.
