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! 🙂
Omg…have you done your taxes yet? I swear, I think I always wait till the last minute. *sigh*
Here’s a great article from Real Simple titled 8 Simple Things You Should Know About Last-Minute Tax Filing (click).
Hopefully, hubby and I can get ours submitted this weekend!

That looks gorgeous–and love the green background!
In Canada we have until Apr 30
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!
I feel like being a certified tax preparer would make me more stressed out! I would probably over-analyze everything! lol
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.)
We got our taxes done early! It’s paying the IRS that I’m procrastinating on. 🙁
Soy sauce and teriyaki sauce really work wonders in the kitchen. Add in some vegetables, rice, protein, and you have yourself a great meal!
Can’t wait for your teriyaki recipe!
I JUST filed my taxes last night for the first time on my own! I used Turbo Tax. So glad that’s done.
