I got a new book!
A Thousand Splendid Sunsis the follow-up novel to Khaled Hosseini’s The Kite Runner and is about two Afghan women’s lives intertwining over a period of 40 years. Hosseini is a seriously talented story teller and I can’t wait to dig in! What’s the last book you read for fun?
While at the book store, I also read about Heidi Montag’s new body in People Magazine. I think it’s sad that a naturally beautiful girl like her would want to augment and change herself so drastically. I’ll never understand it!
At any rate – when I got home from my errands, I was understandably STARVING! The samples I had at Costco helped (fresh mozzarella, chicken ravioli & yogurt, oh my!) and I scarfed down the other half of my apple and orange, leftover from my salad this afternoon, before I went to 5:00 church with my parents.
I got a large latte when we got there, and enjoyed it while listening to a guest pastor talk about loving thy neighbor. Do you love your neighbors?
This helped keep the hunger at bay, until I got home…
And made a repeat of last night’s dinner. Well part of it, anyways…the Vegetarian Fried Rice part!
This time I used chopped up broccoli, frozen peas & corn, and 1 egg + 1 egg white for the veggies,
and ground ginger, garlic powder and sesame oil for the flavah!
Oh, and a splash of soy sauce, natch!
First I splashed some sesame oil in a skillet and let it heat up.
Then I added the frozen corn and peas to the skillet and sauteed them until hot, ~1 minute.
Next I added in cooked brown rice and broccoli, (I added the chopped broccoli to the rice pot when it had about 5 minutes left to cook so it could steam)
added a splash of soy sauce, and sprinkling of ginger and garlic powders,
Next, I created a well in the middle of the mixture, poured the whisked egg + egg white in, and scrambled everything up.
I love this meal!
Chewy brown rice, salty soy sauce, savory sesame oil and sweet corn kernels.
Not to mention the extra oompf and body the eggs give the whole dish. Winner winner, fried rice dinner!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some Jersey Shore to watch. What a highly entertaining, train wreck of a show! Good night!
What’s your favorite guilty pleasure show?
