All afternoon I have been craving Chinese food-specifically the rice. So I ran to the grocery store after work and picked up a couple of bags of chicken fried rice mix, a can of Chinese veggies, some chicken breast, and egg rolls. Much cheaper than takeout! I cooked the rice and vegetables together. (Not very good looking at this point!)
I fried the cut up chicken in some oil and soy sauce. When the chicken was done, I scrambled an egg in the same pan, and then added the rice/veggie mixture to the pan to stirfry it all up together.
While that was cooking I threw the egg rolls in the fryer.
And before too long it was ready-not as good as Panda Express-but definitely cheaper! And since it was basically takeout food-we opted for paper plates, too. I didn't think about fortune cookies, while I was at the store, so while we ate I googled fortune cookies and read the boys fortunes. I'm sure they thought I had lost my mind!
