Cheap Food

Yesterday it was my day to cook. We had eaten meat for the last couple nights and wanted something different. I ended up making fried rice. Definitely a pretty cheap meal. Ours was a couple carrots, 3 slices of bacon, 2 green onions, 2 scrambled eggs (thanks Flea, forgot to mention that), a cut up chunk of sweet onion, some soy sauce and 3 cups of rice. If I can make it you certainly can. Basically the recipe goes as follows:
1 cook the rice
Cut bacon into little pieces and throw it into the wok (or fry pan) to cook.
While bacon is cooking cut up the veggies.
When bacon is done throw veggies into the wok.
Wait till veggies are cooked.
Put scrambled eggs in (thanks again Flea)
Stir rice into wok
Put soy sauce in and keep stirring till it seems done.

Now you have a big ole thing of fried rice. We like it best with a bit of Ketchup.

You could do it with flavored chicken or something but we eat enough meat that having it largely absent from a meal is just fine. We had leftovers tonight as a light dinner. Got a couple meals left in the fridge. Probably lunches for me for the first half of next week.

Scrambled eggs are good in fried rice as well. (if you like eggs)

I like the hot sauce that is found at the Vietnamese places.

A family favorite. We were able to make this in the jungle, except for the bacon. We replaced it with breaded fried chicken pieces.

Jungle Mom, That would be pretty darn good also.

Another interesting item for Ramenor Saimin
Crack an egg and scramble it or just add it right into the ramen while it is cooking. It really adds heft to the snack.

That sounds good. You can get some of those pre-cooked real bacon bits (not the immitation, which aren't bad but real kicks a$$) if you are in a hurry.

Add a can of mushrooms, or a can of Rotel tomato and chile (my Hispanic is showing, lol) for some extra kick.
