I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Chicken Fried Rice and Orzo

Good as a side or a main. Who needs take-out?

2 cups uncooked brown rice
1/4 cup orzo
2 small carrots, diced or sliced
1 cup peas, canned or frozen
1 cup frozen broccoli/cauliflower
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsps vegetable oil
2 eggs
salt and pepper
1 cup cooked chicken, diced

1/4 cup soya sauce
1 tsp sesame seed oil
1 tsp ginger powder

Cook the rice and cook the orzo to al dente and cook the carrots. Drain and chill. Scramble the egg with salt and pepper and fry it up, then set aside.
Once  the rice/orzo is chilled, mix all the vegetables in along with the diced chicken.  
Mix the soya sauce, sesame seed oil and ginger together.

Heat vegetable oil in a wok and add the minced garlic. Cook until very light brown. Add the rice/veg mixture. Pour soya mixture over and toss until completely coated. Add the sliced, scramble egg and heat through.
