The cherry sauce for this dish came out really great, but overall, this meal wasn’t a fan favorite at my house.

I’m the only one who ate the bok choy. At least the girl tried it. Everyone else seemed afraid of it. I’ll need to figure out a way to disguise it next time. Also, the rice was kind of bland, and the whole plate presented too “pink”. It was boring and I’ll need to step up my creativity to compete against everyone else around here!
