And I Do Appreciate You Being 'Round

If you cook most of the days, you can begin to feel like there is nothing more to make, like you've done everything you could with ground meat and common vegetables.  But like little miracles, new ideas pop up when you need then.  I like to keep dinner simple and the less pots on the stove the better.  I start my recipe searches with the word, easy.  This, from the Taste of Home website, was an excellent find.  An Egg Roll Bowl served over white rice.  Why didn't I think of that!?
Do you remember Brini Maxwell, the iconic 50's housewife creation of Ben Sander?  She is such an inspiration.  Not only is she an amazing personality with the perfect set design and matching retro attire but she has tips that are unique and surprisingly helpful.
Next time I will fry up some wonton strips for the top.  But crushed peanuts would be a nice topper as well with less effort.  A little extra crunch for the top is always a great idea. 

Baby Bok Choy, cabbage, red bell peppers, carrots and onions went in, sliced thinly for this medley of vibrant vegetables.  Other than the necessary cabbage, you could add whatever vegetables you like or have.
The ground pork was seasoned with ginger, garlic, soy and and sesame oil.  
This made excellent lunch box meals and I was able to use up all of the rice, wasting nothing.
