Today was a great day because I got to spend time with two of my very dearest friends. It couldn’t just get any better after that so here I’m sitting and just feeling so happy and satisfied. Both my friends are moms of two wonderful children and knows the ups and downs of motherhood and that is just a bonus. Thank you Ulrika and Molly for being so amazing.
Since one of my friends dates was in the evening I made dinner for my kids before I left. I used leftover rice I made fried rice and it was wonderful and both kids loved it. Fried rice is so easy and you can add any vegetables you have available. I also added cubes of cheese and beans for extra protein.
Heat oil in a wok on medium heat. Cook garlic for 1 minute. Add carrots, broccoli, corn, water, tamari or Bragg’s and curry and reduce to a simmer for 5-10 minutes, until vegetables are soft. Add garbanzo beans, figs, cheese and stir in rice.
