Teriyaki and Tax Talk

Hey friends!

Just a quick post for right now…

Hubby and I had some leftover brown rice, so I made…fried rice! It is THE BEST thing to do with leftover rice that I know. When I eat rice straight up, I like it light and fluffy and just how it is when it’s fresh-cooked. But even a day or two later, and it’s more dry, firm, and just not as tasty. But fried rice is an easy to turn something less appealing into deliciousness. And surprisingly or not, day old rice is preferred for fried rice making. You pretty much just need leftover rice, some veggies (even frozen work!), and some soy sauce. Sesame seeds give nice crunch. I’ll have to share my family’s recipe some time.

I’m playing around with a teriyaki sauce recipe. I lurve teriyaki sauce, but have yet to create the perfect from-scratch sauce. I’m close, though, and will totally share it with you guys when it’s ready! :)

    We must be on the same wavelength because I just made fried rice with my leftovers and did my taxes :) I’m actually a federally certified income tax preparer, but I still waited until kind of last minute and being certified did not make it ANY less stressful. Doing taxes is the worst!

    First, yum. :) Second, yes. I filed our taxes in February. We were getting a pretty sweet federal refund (state takes forever to get back) and we wanted to tackle a house project with the money. (Also, I’ve done taxes for several friends…so I’ve technically done taxes this year four times.)
