fried rice

Fried rice is one of the quickest, easiest, tastiest things to make in the morning when there's leftover rice lurking in the rice cooker. Toss in a little onion and/or scallion, some frozen or leftover veggies, and that's that. Peanut oil is my preferred cooking medium, but I'll use canola if I'm sending the lunch along to preschool or if it's going to be eaten in the classroom.

Nate's lunch for grandma's
house: vegetable fried rice;
honeydew melon flowers;
sesame tofu; mini banana
blueberry muffin.

And then there are always
snacks to be made...
more mini banana blue-
berry muffins; cucumbers
slices; baby carrots.

My muffin and cupcake
stashes have been running
low lately. Probably due to
the raw food eating plan.
I need to get baking! I can't
wait 'til next week!

Ryan's lunch: vegetable fried rice w/purple potato flowers; honeydew melon flowers; sesame tofu; mini banana blueberry muffin.

This was our very last potato from the farm. But I was impressed at what a deep purple colour it had. Not bad for a local potato!

Me, yesterday:
7:30am- apples slices w/almond butter.
9am- flax crackers.
11am- smoothie: 1 banana, 1/2 cup frozen mango, 3 frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup ground almonds & hazelnuts, liquid DHA, water.
2pm- 1 avocado.
4:30pm- dried zucchini chips.
8pm- Raw Revolution chocolate coconut bar.

I just HAD to dehydrate some
zucchini chips yesterday after
reading about it on someone's
blog...but now I can't remember
whose! Sorry! I made three
varieties: garlic, kelp, and Old
Bay. LOL. And wouldn't you
know it, Ryan hated them, and
AJ loved them...the total
opposite of our norm.

Yeah, I kind of peter out of creative energy by the end of my husband's trips. Well, that and I run out of groceries!
