Yesterday's dinner was Bacon Rice from Rachel Rappaport's Coconut & Lime food blog. It was super simple to make - just a lot of prep work. I don't have a wok, making fried rice is sometimes a pain - and quite oily. So this was a really nice alternative to getting all the flavors without all the frying. I used baby bok choy instead of the gai lan - since KS' is no fan of the stuff (basically "choi sum, right?") I fried up the bacon in tiny strips for maximum crispiness. The nice thing is, I prepped everything - the omelette, the veggies, the bacon, the rice about an hour and a half before we actually ate. I tossed everything together when we were ready for dinner and everything tasted great - not gummy or rock-hard. I highly recommend this recipe~ I know I'll be making it in the somewhat near future~ :D
Also, since I've been cooking from home more and more as of late, we've found that our gas bill is rising through the roof. I might need to rethink any more roasting/baking/broiling in the oven... and limit how many stews/chilis/sauces I make. *sigh* We just can't win.
