Fried Rice

Years ago I would hang out at my neighbor's house. Debbie was a year ahead of me in school. She had 3 brothers. Her father worked at the steel mill and her mom, Ruby, stayed home. Ruby was a good cook. To this day, I have never had a better steak than she could cook. One of my favorite dishes she made was Fried Rice. I love it. I made some tonight for supper.

Here's the recipe:

1 cup cooked Minute rice
1/2 cup diced ham
2 Tbls butter
4 green onions, chopped
1/2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 Tbls Soy Sauce
2 eggs, mixed lightly
(I usually multiply these ingredients by 4 when not serving anything else with it.)

Cook the rice ahead of time using a little less water than called for. Set aside.

Melt butter in skillet on medium. Add ham and green onions and saute for about 10 minutes.  Add Sauces and cook till warm. Add the eggs and cook until eggs are done, stirring often.
Stir in the rice and serve.

On a different note, I saw my brother and his family off this morning. They had been visiting us in our new home the last four days. Each goodbye gets a little easier. While it's never fun to say goodbye, it doesn't keep me from wanting visitors! It was just a little odd since our families had been neighbors for 17 years and now they were "visitors". We had fun though and I look forward to having them come back. I often sit here trying to figure out exactly why God has placed us here in our new home in Florida so far from our families in Indiana. No answers yet, but, I keep this in mind:
