What’s your go to snack?

#Chinese c-store treats include corn on the cob and tea soaked duck eggs. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ It’s funny to me how concepts of what constitutes a ‘treat’ changes culture to culture.

WHAT’S YOUR GO TO C-STORE SNACK?

Fried Rice Recipe Attempt!

18 Sep

First efforts at making Fried Rice at home – well, first at making any rice! ๐Ÿ˜„ Since I’ve lived in Asia 6 years now, thought I ought to try ๐Ÿš Came out DELICIOUS! It’s seriously as good as any I’ve ever tried before!

.
Rice was shockingly easy:
+ Cups of rice (your choice) – I mixed rice types & it came out good โœ…
+2 Cups if Water per Cup of rice
+ Salt (I used a shaker and put about 4 twists)

Get water really boiling (high medium heat) for a few minutes. Throw in rice & salt. Put on lid and leave at same heat for 18 minutes. Don’t take off the lid! Turn off but leave covered until pan is cooled. Refrigerate overnight for #FriedRice

Fried Rice:
+3-4 Cups of Cooked Rice (next day)
+1 Bag of frozen mixed vegetables or mix fresh of (corn, peas, carrots)
+2-3TBSP Oil for frying (Olive, Sesame, Vegetable)
+ 3-4T Soy Sauce (add more to cover as needed – it goes a long way)
+ Fresh Garlic (sliced thinly to taste)

Cook vegetables and garlic first in oil until done, stirring occasionally. Add rice and stir in slowly until rice is thoroughly warmed and mixed in. Add Soy Sauce. Warm a little longer. SERVE! ๐Ÿš๐Ÿš

10 Mar

When you run into #desserts that you’re just not sure about. . . . ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜› And then you actually try and are like, ‘Just say no to dessert!’

I’m just saying, I never meet a dessert I won’t eat and I left BOTH of these on the table. Still not sure about the second, but the first was #greentea jello with red beans and lychee fruit. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Would y’all try it?!?
