Fish cake and ginger chicken – Meal in a jar

Mason jar is a wonderful item that you can use it for many purposes. I use a lot of the jars to store my dried food as well as canned food. I also love the decoration that mason jar offers while storing fresh food. So as one of the Meal In A Jar fan, I would love to share you one recipe that I make for lunch. It is full of nutrition, provides you enough energy and it is healthy.
