So, I never post recipes. Because I don’t cook much. Or mostly at all. Lately I’ve taken to planning a few weeknight dinners. Partly because, although I love Publix, I am sick of going there every day. And also so I can load up on produce at our local market. And then there’s all that chatter about how it’s healthier for you. When I do cook, it has to be either crockpot style or something that doesn’t take forever. I have a roaming 2 year old come 4:30 and he’s not going to calmly hang out for me to brown anything. He’s tearing doors off hinges and gluing cats to things. I hadn’t realized this before him, but two year olds have insane energy. And imagination. And the two can wreak some havoc in your house.
Anyway, so Kristen at Dine and Dish is always posting some pretty yummy eats. I love looking at the pictures and reading about them. But I never made any of it. In general, I love the idea of cooking. I just don’t like actually cooking. I’m a spectator in the sport of cooking I guess. Right, so a few weeks ago she posted about having too much zucchini and needing to incorporate zucchini into everything they ate to use it up. I do not know how she came to this recipe but I am glad she did. What is the recipe you ask? Bacon Fried Rice. Read it again because you read it right. Bacon. Fried. Rice.
The ingredients are pretty easy to come by. And to cut up and saute. Really the only trick part is the mincing of the garlic. Always so sticky. Other than that, I followed her directions and ta-da! Bacon Fried Rice. The taste really is amazing and it is an awesome leftover lunch. The only change I made was to use low sodium bacon and soy sauce.
I have a cache of about ten “go-to” recipes and this one is number eleven. Easy. Tasty. Even I could cook it. Which is what you call a ringing endorsement.
