Fried rice

So, some days it’s impossible to really get motivated to do anything strenuous. This was one of those days. But still, one needs to eat!

Thankfully, I had some leftover rice pilaf in the fridge, so I decided to fry it up and make it a meal. My mom used to make fried rice, and I always loved it. It’s called cha-han, in Japanese. Doesn’t that make it sound more special? It sounds homey and comforting to me. And it’s a great way to use up leftovers, if you have them.

The rice already had carrots and celery in it, but as a nod to my health, I added some frozen peas for a boost of green. In a frying pan, I melted some butter (the flavour is so much better than with oil), and dumped a beaten egg into it and gave it a quick scramble. Then the rice went in. Stir, stir, stir, serve.

While still wearing pajamas at 5 pm, of course. What? It’s been a hard week!
