This stir-fry is quick and easy and pretty tasty. I used sliced sugar snap peas instead of snow peas, and it added a nice crunch to the dish.

As a side note - I was so excited to see the Sam Adams Winter Classics Mix Pack at the grocery store. There are some beers that we've never tried in there, and also one that we tried 2 years ago when we went on the brewery tour in Boston - Old Fezziwig Ale. It's really good - I highly recommend picking up a pack and trying it out. I don't think you can get some of the varieties other than in the variety pack.
