Ham stir fried rice aka "fridge clean out"
Here's tonight's supper: I put some canola oil and some sesame oil on my large, grill pan, then added the following: bok chop, some fresh asparagus, 2 carrots, some long in the tooth celery, 1/2 of a yellow pepper. I left this stir fry a bit, then added: about 2 cups chopped Easter ham, a container of l/o mixed fzn vegetables, all of the assorted, l/o sauce packets from a recent Chinese take out celebration: soy sauce, mustard sauce, sweet n sour sauce. I let that cook a bit more before adding the l/o Chinese restaurant rice, the l/o Basmatti rice from last night and 2 eggs that I scrambled on the grill pan.
