Another well loved, delicious recipe! Cabbage Fried rice

I had to work all day until ten at night yesterday, I was so busy I barely got the time to grab a smoothie for lunch! It was already five pm!

By the time I took a pee break, it was nine forty-five and my tummy was positively angry with me!

The situation didn’t improve when I realized I only had a head of purple cabbage and other green vegetables in the crisper with some day old steamed rice.

Why can’t I have an unlimited supply of peanut butter and jelly like normal people!

Nope, my fridge is stocked with all the things I don’t crave at night, definitely not a happy sight when I am starved, aggravated, and tired!

So, Cabbage fried rice it is!

Once it was all done, it was delicious! Even my picky overworked, cranky husband polished his plate in a matter of seconds, it seemed!

The entire deal only took me 15 minutes, with enough time to relax before bed!

Of course, I made sure there was enough left for a photo shoot this morning so I can tell you all about it!

It’s definitely one my favorite rice recipes along with the orzo toasted pine nut one! What a treat!
