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!
1/2 cup rice, uncooked
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup carrot, chopped
1/3 cup green onion, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 1/2 eggs
2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
Salt & Pepper to taste
