Or, we try that shrimp fried rice recipe YET again. Well, I botched it a bit by being creative. I mixed different types of rices that had very different cooking times. Won't make that mistake again! You'll see what happens below.
But, the takehome of all this was that we still will honor Friday night as date night, even if we're married. To celebrate it, and to not have to go out and buy more supplies, we made what we had around -- rice, shrimp, green beans and carrots.
After coming home from all that traveling (3 trips for me, 2 for John) in such a short amount of time, I'm very happy to be home and cooking in my own kitchen again. Especially with those great knives!
