This is fancy rice. Not technically fried rice, because the rice doesn't get fried. Here's the recipe:
Scramble an egg, add frozen veggies and ham. Throw it in a rice cooker full of steamed rice and stir it all around. If it needs flavoring, add a dash or two of Maggi. This is Maggi, in case you were wondering:********
Here's my parmesan chicken--Chicken nuggets, tomato sauce and parmesan cheese on a bed of noodles.The beauty of this meal is that kids who don't like their food items touching each other can have everything served separately on plates with little dividers. By the way, aren't those yellow carrots the cutest?
This one is Thai Green Curry--Sautee chicken, onion and celery. Pour in a jar of Trader Joe's Thai Green Curry sauce and simmer. Serve over brown rice. Throw in some cherry tomatoes from the garden for color (and nutrition, even though the kids won't touch them. When will this phase end? Come to think of it, they don't touch the curry either! I could do a series of blog posts called "What WE ate, what THEY ate" or "What WE ate, what THEY didn't eat.")
And lately, when I don't have a decent side of veggies to serve, I send the boys out to the garden to pick some of these yellow cucumbers. They're yummy! EVERYONE eats these.
