I got so many bad news last week. It’s really just too much bad news for January. First, a friend of mine passed away while he was on vacation. Then two days later, there was a medical emergency on our commuting train two days in a row. The following day, my best friend’s uncle passed away. He had been in a good condition during the day, he went home and suddenly became unconscious. The next day, my grandma’s sister passed away while she was having a massage (uh, okay…). And just yesterday, a friend of mine was involved in a car accident and had to undergone a surgery. Honestly, it was like a wake-up call for me – to realize that I’m healthy and alive and surrounded by people who really care about me. To that, I am grateful.
Now, let’s talk about fried rice. I figured that I will need something light and easy to help me go through the week. Remember the butter I made for Chicken Kiev? Well, if you still have leftover butter, don’t throw that away because we will use the butter to add flavors to this fried rice.
Buttery-Herb Fried Rice
- 1 cup cold cooked rice
- 1 tbs leftover butter
- 1 tbs maggi sauce
- ¼ cup sliced cooked ham
- Green onions, thinly sliced
- Heat a wok or frying pan and add the butter. Let it melt and add the rice and ham. Cook, stir and mix well.
- When the rice is heated through, add the maggi sauce. Mix thoroughly for about 1 minute. Garnish with green onions and serve.
