THE BEST FRIED RICE

I make a mean fried rice.  Actually, its better than any fried rice you’ll have in a restaurant.  I know, I’m being big time immodest, but seriously my fried rice is awesome.  All my friends agree, they love my fried rice, up there along with my wontons and stir fry’s.

Ingredients: 

 

Final Product:

I think I made enough for an army, but that’s the only way I know how to make fried rice, in large, huge portions. 

My fried rice has: bbq pork, mushrooms, green onions, eggs and shrimp.  I cut up everything and then cook it up individually before I throw it all in with the rice.  The reason why I cook the shrimp, eggs and mushrooms individually is to add more flavour to the final product.  I didn’t put any ham in this version, just the bbq pork.  It still came out great though.

I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll mention it again, I enjoy cooking.  Takes my mind off everything and I’m just thinking about my end product as I cook.  And last night it was yummy fried rice.

GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL

My mom won a George Foreman grill about 2 years ago.  She started to grill fish, chicken and pork on it and it always turned out well and very tasty. 

So, about a few months ago she decided to buy a bigger George Foreman grill and she gave me her old one, look above for the model I now own.  I didn’t think I would use it, but I accepted it from her because I didn’t want her to feel bad that I didn’t really want it.  I have enough kitchen gadgets, but what’s one more, right?

I decided to use it on some boneless chicken thighs awhile back, figured I should use it since I have it, and they turned out so well, and now I’m totally hooked on this grill.  It is seriously so easy to use and wash-up.  I can’t believe it, but I’m a true believer in this grill.  I thought it was would be messy because of the tray of drippings, but its not.  And, the clean-up is so simple, just a few wipes with a wet sponge with some dish detergent and you’re good to go.  I used it last night and my chicken breast turned out fantastic.  I think the next thing I’ll grill is some vegetables.  Yum.

I enjoy cooking, I don’t do it often because of time, and this grill makes it easy and quick.  I know, it’s a little silly to be so excited by a grill, but I am.  I highly endorse this product!!!  LOL. 😀
