    Default Brown rice and leftovers...

    Thawed a 9 cup portion of a vegetable stock tonight. Felt a bit more
    like cooking with the news I got earlier tonight, and dad is getting
    tired of what I was offering. <g>

    I added 4 1/2 cups of brown rice to that along with fresh stuff and left
    overs.

    1 1/2 yellow onions, 3 wild onions, 3 cloves of pressed garlic, 1 large
    hunk of fine grated fresh ginger root, a bit of lemon pepper and
    granulated garlic, most of a head of fine sliced bok choy, 3 stalks of
    fine sliced celery, 3 baby carrots (leftovers), about a cup of fine
    sliced romain lettuce ends, 4 white mushrooms (leftovers), 1 ****ake
    mushroom (leftovers), a fine scattering of MSG.

    Am currently pressure cooking for 30 minutes.

    I have some canned asian veggies in the pantry including baby corn,
    water chestnuts and bamboo shoots, probably some canned straw mushrooms
    as well.

    I'll add those along with some separately scrambled eggs, some soy
    sauce, oyster sauce and a little dark sesame oil and a can of no salt
    added peas, well drained.

    Final addition will be about 1 lb. of pre-cooked shelled cocktail shrimp.

    That ought to do it for faux-fried rice... and use up most of the
    leftovers in the refrigerators. :-)

    Sounds delicious. I tried it with precooked shrimp and we like it much
    better with the uncooked shrimp. Lots more flavor to us. And I added
    coleslaw mix too.

    I agree that fresh cooked shrimp do add more flavor, but they tend to
    get overcooked on re-heating and I'll be freezing at least 1/2 of this
    in portions. It was a very large batch and will spoil before all of it
    can be eaten. I prefer to serve fresh shrimp as an entree. <g>

    I'm trying to use up some of the stuff in the freezer.

    I plan to continue that even when I start working again. If I can keep
    spending cut the way I have over the past month, it'll help increase my
    savings account.
