New Year’s Eve Recipe – Fried Rice

Today I am continuing my preparations for our family New Years Eve celebration. Only two days left until 2013. It’s hard to believe that the year is almost over. A few days ago I decided to do an Asian themed menu for our extravaganza – Lumpias and fried rice. I have already shared my Lumpia recipe with you. Today I have my fried rice recipe to share with you too. It’s super yummy and very easy to make. My stepdad loves it!
