Son: “Mom, what's for dinner?”
Me in fetal position on sofa: “Leftover lo mein.”
Son: “I don't want that.”
Me (inside voice) “I don't care.”
Son: “Isn't there anything else?”
Me (also inside guilty voice) “I had lunch at Le Bernadin. Maybe I should make something.”
Me (last inside voice) “I could use up the leftover ingredients from the lo mein and leftover rice…will seem like new dish!”
Me (aloud) “OK, I'm getting up.”
15 minutes later…
Friday fried rice:
2 eggs whisked
Leftover rice already cooked (about 1 cup dried)
1 medium onion chopped
2 carrots sliced
Hand sized hunk of napa or any other cabbage, shredded
A mug of frozen peas cooked in microwave 2 ish minutes
4 scallions chopped
Heat large non stick skillet. Swirl 2 teaspoons oil. Add eggs and let set like an omelette. Remove from pan, fold like paper airplane cut to match size of cabbage. Set aside. Add 2 teaspoons oil to pan. Sautée onion medium heat, getting a little color. Add carrot – ditto. Add cabbage and sprinkle of salt, soften. Peas in, scallions too. Stir, combine rice and egg. Soy sauce to taste.
