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.



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.


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. 😀
