do you do when you find yourself with a big batch of
rice you gotta use up now? Well, I have no idea
what you do, but what I do is pull whatever else seems
likely out of the fridge and make fried
rice. In this case I added carrots,
mushrooms, lotus rootlets, scallions, turkey bacon,
and eggs, and made turkey
bacon & egg fried
rice. It's like having breakfast
for lunch! Well, OK, not really. But it is quite good.
I also have more baked
purple sweet potato, boiled
spinach with mayonnaise, a French
bread mini-baguette with butter, some
dried cherries, and a few mini-carrots. And I must confess
something about the spinach. That's not regular cookin'
spinach. Kroger was selling off bags of spinach salad
mix real cheap because it was getting wilty, and I grabbed
one to experiment with. The experiment was a success,
although there were a few bits in there that didn't
cook as the rest of the spinach did. They didn't do
any harm either, they just looked confused and out-of-place.
