This is the finished dish of fried rice, sans the fresh coriander (cilantro). We both rated it a high B, although we thought it needed some salt or something. Probably would have been solved by the astringent flavor of fresh cilantro or coriander had I been able to find some yesterday. Nonetheless, it made for a very tasty and healthy date night dinner. We didn't intend on watching a movie because the first two seasons of Rocky & Bullwinkle arrived on DVD, but after three shows or so, we turned on the TV and there was a silly Christina Applegate movie on called Just Visiting. A lot of famous actors in it, and it was light enough to be entertaining. Back to R&B, though, in the very first episode of Sherman and Mr. Peabody, we learned how Sherman became his boy. Pretty cool! We also saw how the animation changed in the first three shows from sloppy to more polished. It seemed as though Jay Ward spent a lot more of his time and effort on the Fractured Fairy Tales and the other "friends" of R&B. What we wanted to know was if it was on weekly, daily or what originally, since there are a whopping 52 episodes in the first season. Anyone know?
