Pork Fried Rice

Rice is one of the most budget friendly ingredients you can cook with. Whether you are making an easy side dish or a main dish, it’s quick, easy and taste great too.

One of our favorite dinners is Take-Out from our local Chinese Restaurant, but to feed the whole family, it can cost around $35. And really, cooking up a Stir-Fry and some Pork Fried Rice takes less than 30 minutes {usually 15}.

The other great thing about Fried Rice is you can change it up with lots of different ingredients and have a new dish every time. We started with Brown Rice, cooked and cooled. While the rice is cooling, fry the pork sausage and get the rest of your ingredients ready. We also used a packet of Sun-Bird Seasoning. They make lots of different seasonings from, and are very budget friendly. I saw the Sun-Bird Fried Rice Seasoning Packet at my local Walmart and it was only 78 cents!

  1. [...] And, here is The Dragon Puppet. I found the pattern over at Craft Jr. and simply printed him out on cardstock paper and used my son’s Prisma colored pencils to color him. I love to color, it’s so relaxing! To make him into a puppet, I simply cut out the head and tail, added a strip of red construction paper about 1 1/2 inches wide, and glued on wooded skewers. And he’s sitting in a bowl with Fried Rice. [...]
