I’m totally going to make an adorable graphic of me in my chef’s outfit for these posts as soon as I dye my hair again 😀 Until now you guys have to put up with…. a text stick figure with kind of a chef hat… just pretend it’s me ok?

Ok it looks more like a crown than a chef’s hat… also the question mark is totally a wooden spoon… just use your imagination ok?
Fried rice is my favorite comfort food and seeing as the weather has been so chilly lately I like nothing more than curling up on the couch with an episode of Buffy, a bowl of fried rice, a cup of tea and some knitting.
So as a completely random post, here’s my current favorite recipe!
What you need:
- Onion (diced)
- A couple of cups of old rice (I usually use 1 day old rice because I’m impatient)
- Ham (diced)
- Anything else in your cupbord, my favorite add ins are peas and leeks!
- Soy sauce
Cut up all of the ingredients and fry the onions in a little oil.
Once they have cooked 80% add in the ham and any other bits you want like peas. If you want to add in leeks (which is damn delicious) you should do it along with the onion because they take around the same time to cook.
Mix them all together and allow to cook for a minute.
Now make some room on the middle of the pan and crack in an egg. Stir it around with the spatula and scramble it. Keep stirring until it comes apart into little pieces.
Add in some more oil and then the rice. Stir it all until it’s hot and add a little soy sauce.
Serve and enjoy with a good movie 😀 And next time I will get James to take the photos for me so you can see how awkward I am in the kitchen! What are your favorite comfort foods? I need more midnight snack ideas!
