Spam Fried Rice


Just a quick post here and hopefully there won't be a ton of typos. I had such a rough day yesterday, the kids at school are out of control. With there being a full moon and all the FCAT testing is over, the weather is beautiful, they just can't control it, and we feel it all in the clinic. (and it's not just tummy aches and bumps and bruises we get in there) Then when I got home
I had to get on the phone for hours to help my daughter get her computer running again, after we added a new printer in her room for it, that should of been use months ago. I didn't even get a chance to really get on the computer and read any blogs. Then I had to run down to Nokomis to Maranda's friends to drop off a school book for her that she forgot at school and wanted to borrow Maranda's. Then....dinner! So I went with fried rice... easy peasy....Fried rice is always good for that and we had rice in the fridge, but probably not as much as we should of put in there.
I had some Chinese broccoli that I have never had before and wanted to try, so I thought I'd add it to this dish. I used Jaden Hair's recipe that she posted on her website Steamy Kitcken. She was also on our local station once too where she did her Spam Fried Rice recipe. She also tweeted about it, so I thought I'd give it a try. I did use spinach that she called for in hers (I always have spinach on hand).

Spam is a great thing to have in our hurricane prepared supplies, so I did have some on hand that I had to use and get more for the up coming hurricane season. Just dice the spam. I should of added the spam before the spinach, because I like a little crisp on my spam, and didn't what the spinach that "done" but the broccoli got done right.

It was good, we all liked it. It was nice and colorful perfect to add to a bento lunch for today, but Wade finished it all, and I didn't get to use any leftovers!

I made just a few changes (well...what did you expect?) I like to add ginger/garlic paste, and a little tamari. I don't remember what else besides the Chinese broccoli, but that is the nice thing about fried rice...you add what you have and like. Enjoy you day!
