Easiest fried rice

rice.jpgThis is a great dish to make when you’re not really in the mood to cook but still want something healthy, filling and tasty.

This is how I was feeling last night…really not in the mood to cook.

When I’m feeling this way I often turn to dishes that I consider to be “semi-homemade.” I’ll use the base of something pre-made such as canned soup, chili or something yummy from the frozen section, and then add veggies and maybe some extra beans or meat to it.

Making food this way is almost always cheaper than getting take out or going to a restaurant and I can keep the ingredients on hand in the pantry or freezer, which is nice and convenient.

For last night’s dinner I heated up a bag of pre-made chicken fried rice in the microwave. Then I fried up 3 eggs for some extra protein (and they were really delicious!). For the veggies I boiled up some green beans and sliced a tomato. It was a fast, easy, delicious and super inexpensive dinner!!
