this is how she likes it

Chloe has been having so much problem napping lately...she naps for like 10 minutes then wakes up..it doesn't help with Ethan making tons of noise either. But lately she has been napping better in her car seat/crib so I have been putting her in here for her nap. I guess I have to do whatever works for her.

Fried Rice (combination)

  • 4 teaspoons peanut oil, divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions
  • 1/2 cup carrots, diced or pre-shredded--I buy the mix veggie from the freezer department (carrot/peas/corn) or even shredded cabbage
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups leftover white rice
  • 1 cup diced cooked pork--any sort of meat..sometimes I use shrimp/spam/chicken
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 T of oyster sauce
  • 1 t of soy sauce
  • 1 T of garlic power
  • green onion


Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add eggs and cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until cooked through and scrambled. Remove eggs from pan and set aside.

To the same skillet over medium heat, add remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Add scallions, carrots (veggies) and garlic and saute 2 minutes. Add rice and pork; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add oyster sauce and soy sauce and stir to coat rice. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 5 minutes, until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and season, to taste, with salt and black pepper. Stir in cooked egg just before serving.
