Lamb Fried Rice


Sometimes life hands you a little fright to remind you of how lucky you really are. Not that I am in any way unaware of the gems life has strewn across my path…but, as with most people, I am no stranger to trivial discontent and the worrying mind-whisperings it brings. We all fall victim to this, if we are honest, and I certainly am no different, despite my best and most valiant efforts.

In truth, however, we truly are lucky. Writing on this blog means I am able to afford a computer, an internet connection, and a camera…luxuries that many Flower shop (too many) in this world cannot enjoy. This being a food blog also means that I have access and am able to procure three square meals a day, even if I need to pinch pennies and cut corners sometimes. My ample curves mean that I am, without a doubt, thoroughly enjoying those three square meals a day, sometimes a bit too much. The ratty leggings I am wearing, which have seen better days, are worn to the quick because I am lucky enough to have a job that allows me to stay at home (and consequently not have to spend my money on suits and nylons like I did when I worked in a bank).

To cut a long rambling short, the little fright came in the form on myself landing in the hospital for a couple of days. I won’t bore you with the details; I am doing fine now and well on the way to recovery. I am just nursing myself a bit and feeling a tad more fragile than usual. But that’s nothing some rest, comforting food cube organizers, and tender loving attention from the C’s can’t fix. And for that I am truly thankful.

So…that explains the little spot of inactivity over here. It also explains the dearth of cooking (except for one glorious chicken massaged in butter and roasted to divine curative results). It’s times like these when you lean on leftovers (or takeout – yes, I do takeout…don’t judge!) and try to make something of them that is halfway decent in the hopes of affording yourself some nourishment during trying times.

This, I am happy to report, was more than halfway decent SKI TRIP. And a wonderful way to use up leftover lamb chops (for example if you had some leftover from this dish), which we all know lose almost all of their luster the day after. This is also a great way to use leftover steak or pork chops, which are similarly dreary when not freshly cooked.

Here’s what you do: Chop your leftover lamb into bite size pieces (make sure to include all the fat). In a pan, heat some olive oil, and then when hot add some finely chopped garlic and sliced onion. Cook until the onion is soft and garlic a bit toasty. Add the lamb and toss. Depending on what flavors you initially used with the lamb you can add more here – add some rosemary if you used it, or, if you had made this, add more paprika. Add day old rice and toss, letting it absorb all the flavors. Season with salt and pepper, and a couple of good dashes of Worcestershire sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning. If you’ve got some fresh herbs around, you can add them here. I imagine this would be nice with some just-blanched peas mixed in as well.

Tip: If you have leftover lamb chops, pork chops, or steak that you don’t see yourself using in the foreseeable future, just toss them in the freezer. One day, when you are tired and/or busy, you can pull it out and have this wonderful fried rice on your table in no time!

Oh, and if you are feeling extra fragile, a fried egg on top of this will do miracles.

If you like this, feel free to share as part of my efforts to #fightfoodwaste under the tag #500daysoffriedrice :) Here's another idea for fried rice.Hallmark官网

That’s all for now kind folk! I hope to have more for you soon. In the meantime, let's be grateful for what we have…and use those leftovers!

雨中那一抹靜


春季,紛紛繞繞多雨的季節,站在窗前,看著飄飄灑灑的雨絲向著泥土一傾而入,有種說不出的漠然,抬頭望去,只見朦朧中清風撫摸著江邊青翠的垂柳,像害羞的純真少女,不時地撩動著自己的髮梢。了了的雨滴,灑落在少女裙擺上,一滴一滴地泛著層層波光。這時的江景已如天上人間般現在細雨之中,讓人似乎也飄忽不定。

然而我對春季中的雨聲有著一種特別的牽愛,身邊的許多朋友都不喜歡雨天,不喜歡雨天的那種泥濘,也不喜歡雨天的那種纏綿,更不喜歡雨天的那種陰霾,所以有朋友問我:喜歡雨天的女人,總是多愁善感的,你想必也一定是吧?我隨意一笑:不,你錯了,我喜愛雨天,是因為我喜歡雨的那種靜中帶動的韻律,溫婉不失純美,平靜不失情趣,雨聲能在喧鬧的都市中能為自己找一處靜閒的空地,它是命運浮沉坦然面對的自由,也是偷得浮生半日閒的清爽,在雨中你可以忘卻生活中的所有不快,盡情地釋放自己,讓內心深處的壓力沉澱,再沉澱……

記得年少時最喜歡和小伙伴在雨裡狂奔,張開雙手,大聲歡呼,讓雨點肆意地打在身上,盡情享受著甘暢痛快。父親總是在後面追著我,用他那並不十分寬厚的臂膀護著我,總說:“裙兒,快進屋吧,小心淋濕了漂亮的衣服,容易感冒喲!”我卻嘻笑著越跑越有勁兒,在細雨中留下了一串串銀鈴般的笑聲。後來,在我十歲以後,這樣的畫面不再出現了,我知道永遠也不會再有了,從那以後,我喜歡上了春季時節的雨聲,靜心傾聽,沙沙的聲音就像父親柔和的話語,也從那以後我對雨聲也產生了一種特別的情結,裡面繫著我對父親的點滴回憶,繫著我對父親親情的眷顧,繫著父親爽朗的笑聲,慈善的面容,溫和的話語,嘻戲的畫面……每每想到這裡,香港黄金交易平台心中難以平靜,當細雨順空而下時,我都會獨自呆在窗前,就這樣靜靜地望著細雨,感受著往日的溫馨,嚀聽著昔日的笑聲,深吸一口氣,仰望天空,我彷彿看見了父親那慈愛的面容……

而如今,又下雨了,不會像兒時的那樣盡情享受雨中的樂趣,但可以感受著雨中的親暱韻美,坐在窗前,風正輕,雨正柔,花正香,一首首輕揚的音樂,一杯清茶、幾本好書,感受著雨露帶來的絲絲清新。輕輕地閉上雙眼,慢慢感受著空氣中的那份靈動,呼吸著雨中的這份泥土之香,輕揚的音樂在耳邊縈繞,任憑清風吹散著纖纖髮絲,思緒飛舞,飄灑得好遠好遠……
