Fake Fried Rice

Apparently, we’ve been unknowingly doing some Follies advertising while we practice in the gym. :O
S: Hey Farrah, no dancing today?
F: We just finished! We were over in the basketball courts.
S: Oh, no wonder.
F: Yepyep. Are you coming to Follies? :D? (This is some shameless advertising on my part, because I kindasorta make up 10% of the acts.)
S: Well, I gotta tell you, I’m gonna have to come. I saw you dancing in the gym the other day and it was sexy as hell. If I’m not failing GI too badly, I’ll definitely be there.

Enough storytime for the day.

For the record, I’m only calling this “fake” fried rice because I tend to make fried rice with day-old rice. This ended up being more “sticky” (possibly because we used short-grain, not-day-old rice…?). To me, it’s still fried rice in the sense that you throw a bunch of stuff (in this case, all kinds of veggies) + eggs into it and bam, you’re done. It’s probably one of the fastest, most highly variable BS recipes out there, and it’s especially good for getting rid of leftovers. This was made while I was living at Swathi’s house for a day last month. :O

“Fake” Fried Rice

-rice, cooked
-veggies (in this case, there were water chestnuts, carrots + green beans)
-soy sauce
-sesame oil

1) Heat some sesame oil in the wok and throw in the egg, then add a little more oil and throw in all the veggies.
2) Add the rice and toss to mix well. Stir fry for a couple minutes and add soy sauce.
3) Stir fry for a couple more minutes and…you’re done! Serve hot.
