Hard to believe the little one is already six and a half weeks old! He’s now in that stage where he’s smiling and cooing and it’s just so fun!
When it comes to dinners, I’ve been pretty lucky! I had made a few dishes that I froze, lasagnas, bananas bread, even taco meat which came in handy for cinqo de mayo.
Our moms have been awesome, sending food every week, stocking my fridge leaving me one less thing to worry about.
Last week, I realized there were a few containers of steamed rice. There was only one thing to do – make fried rice!
Super easy to make, it transforms leftover steamed rice into a new meal that’s tasty and flavourful! With rice and shrimp, it became a favourite for Q.
Shrimp Fried Rice
1/2 pound shrimp
3 eggs, beaten
3 green onions, chopped
2 carrots, grated
1/2 cup frozen peas
2 TB soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
3 cups steamed rice
In a hot wok, add a little bit of the oil and stir fry the shrimp until opaque. Remove from the heat. Add a little more oil and cook the egg, scrambling while it cooks. Remove and keep with the shrimp. Add a little more oil and stir fry the onions and carrots. Add the rice, peas, soy sauce and sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and eggs until combined and enjoy.
