Get ready, get set....stop. GF Fried Rice...mmmm....

Okay, sorry but no pictures today. I can't for the life of me find my battery charger for the camera. Welcome to the world of an ADD, OCD mom. FRUSTRATING. I bet the fairies hid it, either that or my husband's theory of time slips is possible. Fairies is oddly more understandable unless you've been drinking too much.....ANYWAY!

I better find the charger soon. I am leaving on Wednesday for a real, live adventure. Not just in my head either! But that means some prep work. The aforementioned male in the house (the only one poor thing) does. not. cook. PERIOD. He will also eat anything that comes out of the fridge if it "looks okay" no matter how long it's been in there. So today I decided to clean out the fridge, use the edibles and toss the rest so as to restock it with items that he can microwave but are still acceptable to me and safe for Pom to eat. Good thing for me it was all stuff that could easily be made into a yummy Chinese lunch. :) No dinner tonight, it's my birthday and I am not cooking!

Okay, here goes (use your imagination for the pictures... this is TRUE Chinese restaurant fare here....

2 cups leftover white rice
(this whole 'leftover' word is very important ...the rice won't fry right if it's warm)
2 Tblsp oil ( I used Canola but Peanut is good too )
2 eggs
2 Tblsp (or so) oyster sauce, divided (Gluten FREE)
Soy sauce (this is one of those use your own discretion times, and use GF soy sauce of course)
Any veggies you want. Mushrooms, onions and celery work well.

Heat the oil in a pan, preferably wok-shaped, over med high heat.
In a small dish whisk the eggs and half the oyster sauce, add to the pan. Cook, scrambling, for a minute or so then add the veggies. Stir for a minute or so, then add the rice. Stir to break up and add the soy sauce. Commence stir frying until heated through and cooked well. YUM.

Serve with a stir fry of some sort. I used leftover chicken, green beans, onions, mushrooms and celery in a little oil with garlic powder, onion powder, soy sauce, oyster sauce and a splash of rice wine vinegar. Again I say...YUM!!! Happy Birthday to me!!!

  1. OH and a note...La Choy makes GF soy sauce and oyster sauce. There are other brands but very few, always read labels.
