After years in Asia

I learned how to make fried rice. Maybe I didn't learn it there because I didn't want to even think about eating one more bowl of fried rice (when I lived in Thailand I had either chicken fried rice or shrimp fried rice for lunch every day - I am not exaggerating). or maybe it was just the fact that it was easy to just go out and buy fried rice. Well, with the help of my More for Less cookbook or the Extending the Table cookbook both have about the same recipe. I also have my bottle of fish sauce that a Chinese student gave us. It is the real thing which not much English on the bottle.

For us it is a special treat to have some ham in our fried rice. For some reason I never add chicken or shrimp to my fried rice.

My kids love it. It is fun with our rice bowls and chopsticks. Yes, they are allowed to hold their bowls because that is the way you do it in China.

Miss K wants sticks as well. She doesn't get much in her mouth but she wants them. I found the trainer chopsticks in our things and gave them to her to use. That helped. She was able to get some into her mouth.

We are going to have a long 3 and a half weeks with her wanting to use sticks. I better remember to make some spoons.
