Semi-homemade!

Last night I told Mike I would make him dinner, naturally he was nervous he would need Pepto for dessert, don’t ask…
So, I decided to make something with a little help from my friend Joe (Trader by day). Last week at the store I picked up this bag of chicken fried rice on my trip to TJ’s.

I started by following the bag’s directions and plopped this into the skillet with some Pam.

Since this was a carb heavy dish, we decided to add more veggies. Corn in the skillet, asparagus, broccoli, and green beans in another pot!

I also wanted to amp up the protein in my dish and fried up an egg base my bowl!

While cooking, I just added 1T of low sodium soy sauce to the mix to give it a little flare! Then we combined all the other green veggies to the mix!

We simply served and voila! Dinner!!

Mike added Sriacha to his bowl and I added soy sauce to mine. We both think that next time we will do the same with the veggie overload but I will buy the veggie version and we can add our own meat as this chicken was a little chewy. Overall, good meal though!!!!
After dinner we popped in a Redbox!
We rented Jack Reacher starring Tom Cruise and I really liked it!!
Happy Thursday friends! Tomorrow Mike and I have a fun date night planned! I can’t wait!!!
