Sweet and Sour Shrimp and Broccoli

I love eating out. I’ll be honest, it’s my favorite hobby. I love trying new foods and not having to clean dishes up afterwards! It’s the best. However, it’s expensive and usually unhealthy. So I decided to make one of my favorite Chinese (Americanized) dishes in my own home, and I’ll be honest, this version tastes better than the restaurant and it doesn’t leave me feeling sick and unhealthy!
