At 2.30 am this morning it was Brazil vs Korea ~ Brazil 2, Korea 1. (My boys were relatively satisfied)
At 12.30 pm this afternoon it was Pineapple Fried Rice vs Left overs ~ Pineapple fried rice 2, Left overs 2. (Everyone was satisfied)
That's basically how it went. Allow me to elaborate.
R and I had freshly cooked pineapple fried rice while N and Z had last night's left overs.
I was not being a mean mom. N and Z do not like pineapple. R and I like pineapple. And the left overs were yummy too.
But I love pineapple fried rice only if, in 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, one sautes.........
3 pips of crushed garlic,
1/2 a cup of sweet pineapple pulp along with the
Diced long beans and red peppers,
Splashes of fish sauce,
Splashes of soy sauce,
Sprinkles of salt and crackled black pepper,
Wicked bits of fiery bird chillies
Scramble in an egg or 2
Tumble in 2 Chinese bowls of plain white rice, freshly cooked
Give an energetic stir all the while and finally, with a flourish, throw in....
Juicy bits of sweet pineapple.
Serve steaming hot. Cook only 2 servings at a time if deliciousness is what you're after.
You might like to know that I have never had issues using freshly cooked rice when frying rice. I prefer freshly cooked rice because the rice is hot, moist and fluffy and so easy to fry with. You have, after all, the oil to keep the grains seperate yet not dry. Perfect fried rice every time. True.
12 midnight ~ Spain 0, Switzerland 1 (my boys are not too happy)
