Fried Rice

I know it looks a little nasty but I was sooo proud.
I learned how to make fried rice! Who knew it was sooooo easy and sooooooooo delicious. Seriously. Why has no one ever taught me how to make this delightful easy easy easy easy easy easy dinner.

What I did:
scrabbled 2 eggs and put them off to the side
put day old rice into my fry pan with a very minimal amount of oil
added a half bag of peas that have been in the freezer for who knows how long
added a half bag of corn which also has been in the freezer for who knows how long
added some ham that I took out of the freezer earlier in the day [still eating Easter ham]
added some minced garlic
added some onion
added some soy sauce to taste
cooked till yummy

How did I not know about how easy it is to make fried rice and how easy it is to use up freezer veggies with this recipe?! Seriously!

What do you like to make with rice? I am looking for some other rice based dinner options.
What is in your frequent dinner rotation? I am seriously beginning to make a list of some great go to options for dinner so we don't get stuck eating much of the same stuff over and over again.

If you know of the world's easiest dinner (like this one) please please share with me. I love quick fast, delicious meals!

I am debating making cards with all of our favorite meals on them so I don't forget about some and can get them in some type of a great rotation. Or I need to get better at meal planning.


  1. Sounds delicious! :0) Thanks for crack me up with your ingredient descriptions!
