Photo Shoot Gone Bad
One of my goals this year is to waste less food. I like to cook, but cooking for two presents a few problems. Leftovers. Always leftovers. I had some sticky rice in the fridge from a meal earlier in the week. I was so proud of myself--I was actually going to turn this rice into Ham Fried Rice. I had everything in the fridge for this tasty dish.
Since it was to be a main dish it was full of veggies, meat and eggs. I checked the 450 posts on my blog and realized I had not posted Ham Fried Rice. It really isn't a recipe it's a clean out the fridge dish. It's different every time I make it. It's a method that I wanted to share.
I assembled the ingredients and took a great photo. Then I noticed the bottle of Soy Sauce was almost empty so I wanted to fill it (I purchase Soy Sauce by the gallon at Costco). I take my photos by a big west facing window. Below the window is a shelf with dishes on it. If the dished are stacked just right I can balance a cutting board on top and take my photo. Yes it is precarious but it works--most of the time. As I removed the bottle of soy sauce the center of gravity changed and it all came tumbling down. It crashed to the floor. Eggs smashed, a treasured dish broke, mushrooms rolled and very sticky rice was everywhere.
I made Crustless Ham and Artichoke Quiche instead and I left the mess for my sweet hubby to take care of. So Ham Fried Rice is on hold.
