This Garlic Chicken Fried Rice recipe is exactly what you need for that leftover rice and that one last chicken breast in the fridge to create a new meal and avoid a grocery store run!
One Class Down
Looks like I have made it through my first class! So far so good! One class down, and one million to go! I’ll be graduating in no time! This week is a celebration, my last week of class doesn’t require much and I get a week off before my next class starts. Woohoo! Yay! Yippee!
I look forward to my week of kicking back and relaxing. I think my husband and I are going to coupon. Can you believe it??? My hubby volunteered to coupon with me for the very first time!!! I’ll keep you posted on how that went… I’m just happy to have someone tag team the sales with me.
And school has been keeping me busy along with keeping the kid entertained for the summer. (But that’s okay, because I make sure to take one day a week tucked away under my blankets as I do a Netflix binge. Oh and it’s soooo good!)
And because of this, I definitely don’t want to take a trip to the grocery store sometimes and I try to create whatever I can with leftovers for my family to eat. Oh yea there’s this thing called take out, but I don’t even want to go there because it’s too tempting for me as I try to eat better. (So far so good, only a few slip ups here and there.)
This Recipe Is So Easy
I had everything I needed for this recipe in my fridge – I promise you… And it was quick. I made it just a tad bit different by adding white pepper for a different flavor as well.
I hope you are all enjoying the summer!
