How to make easy cheap chinese food?

I was wondering how you make chinese food. I have a ton of frozen veggies and want to make at least 2 different kind for a good price and some that I can freeze and eat for lunches later. I thought this would be a good place to ask! Thanks

A combination of three parts soy sauce to one part sugar makes a good teriyaki sauce that you can put on pretty much anything. Add garlic, onions and ginger with the sauce to any vegetable combination (carrots, broccoli, peas, beans, etc.) and meat combination (chicken, pork, beef, even SPAM! etc.) and serve over rice or noodles. If your family prefers, add a pinch of crushed red pepper to add heat.

I use ramen noodles or rice. Don't overcook the ramen. You can get chineesy sauce in the ethnic food isle like sweet n sour or sweet n spicy. I use frozen stirfry veggies, leftover rotisserie chicken or thanksgiving turkey/ham is a goon one too. In the canned food isle you can get baby corn & water cress. You can add fresh veggies like spinach, bok choy, bell peppers, broccoli & snap peas. Put it all in a giant frying pan with a bit of oil (I like sesame) & sautee it up...add the cooked rice or noodles last. I used to get the bag dinners, then started looking @ the picture on the bag & decided I could just buy those ingredients & do it myself.
