Fried Rice

Misha has been craving fried rice for weeks. Usually we put chicken in with the fried rice, but since we were serving this with sweet and sour chicken we skipped the chicken.

Fried Rice
Adapted from multiple sources.

Ingredients

1/2 Tablespoon sesame oil
1 onion
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 cups frozen peas and carrots
green onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 eggs
4 cups white rice, cooked and cooled in the fridge
1 can diced pineapple, drained

Directions

  1. Cook and cool the rice ahead of time.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Add onion and saute until soft.
  3. Add green onion and garlic, saute.
  4. Add eggs and scramble.
  5. Stir in peas and carrots and saute.
  6. Add rice and soy sauce and stir until heated through.
  7. Add pineapple, and cook until heated through.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

I missed the chicken, but it was nice not using a seasoning packet. It very much helps to cook the rice in advance and give it enough time to cool in the fridge.

As a result, while cooking the rice ahead of time and getting it into the fridge to cool about a cup of it fell on the floor. Not to worry, we had two very happy pups to help us out:

Note: I must have been really tired when I posted this recipe… I know that I had written out the directions and ingredients… but something must have happened and none of the changes went through. I think I need a break! oops!
