Fried Rice

As I promised in my Chinese Chicken and Mushrooms post I will now share my fried rice recipe, now this was my first time making fried rice. I have watched my grandma make it a few times so I just kind of did it by memory. It actually turned out really good to me, and I think Bobby had about 3 platefuls, need less to say there was none left!

3 cups cooked white rice (mine was cold)
3 TBS sesame oil
1 cup frozen peas and carrots (thawed)
1 small onion, chopped (really small if you are like me and don't like onions)
2 TSP minced garlic
2 eggs slightly beaten
1/4 cup soy sauce
  On medium high heat, heat the oil in a large skillet or wok.  Add the peas/carrots mix, onion and garlic. Stir fry until tender. Lower the heat to medium low and push the mixture off to one side, then pour your eggs on the other side of skillet and stir fry until scrambled (You could do this in a separate pan but no need to dirty more dishes). Now add the rice and mix well with all the veggies. Now add the soy sauce a little at a time and blend together well. Stir fry until thoroughly heated! 
You could make this a meal by adding some chopped chicken, I am planning on making it like that soon!
