Vegetable Fried Rice

I made this recipe a few weeks ago and posted a photo of it on Instagram. Wow. The response was overwhelming! Which is a good thing, because I post a lot of photos of my son and dogs. 

Food clearly gets your attention. :) 

Mine too. 

I'll be honest and tell you that I am a Pei Wei fiend. Hardcore. I love me some Pan-Asian fare. BUT we do have to drive 20 minutes for the closest one. Making this on a Wednesday night is SO MUCH easier and faster. 

This is vegetarian friendly, and if you leave out the egg, its vegan friendly. Get creative and throw in whatever veggies you have on hand. Squash, zucchini, green onions, clean out your freezer drawer packed full of half opened veggies. (Oh wait, is that just me?)

Sweet and Spicy Pork in the Crockpot

Let's learn about Allison. 

I'm not a big pork fan. Bacon, meh. I'll take it, but after about 2 pieces I'm done. Yes, my mother is crying right now. Its ok, she can have my share of bacon in the world. 

We did, however have a pig growing up. A pet pig. Not a pig for butchering and eating. A pet. Gus. 

He was pretty rad. 

I wasn't much of a pork fan until I played around and made the crock pot. Roll your eyes, but my crock pot is my life saver. 

These chops are the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. As you can see, they come out juicy and tender. Serve over Wild Rice with Sauteed Carrots

Wild Rice with Sautéed Carrots

Ready to jazz up your boring wild rice? Jackpot. 

Here's the deal, we eat some sort of brown or wild rice or quinoa every night. I know how boring whole grains can be. I also know how sodium packed the flavored boxed versions are. Gross. 

If you can cook rice, you have half of this recipe down. The other half is-you guessed it-sauteeing carrots. Its a great way to get an extra veggie into your meals and spice up that bland rice! This recipe can be made with any whole grain!
