I spent Mother's Day weekend working in the garden which is usually the case since it falls on the date that officially marks "no danger of frost" and we can plant without worries. So that means I weeded and weeded and weeded the beds for the herbs and for the tomatoes and peppers and then proceeded to weed and weed and weed everything else so we could plant and then put the mulch down
But lo and behold on this cool and rainy Tuesday morning
Cuban-Chinese Fried rice adapted from Cocina Criolla
3 cups of rice
4 1/2 cups of water
3 tbsp of olive oil
3 garlic loves
1/4 tsp of ginger
1 lb. of smoked pork
3 or 4 tbsp of soy sauce
2 small bunches, green onions
1/2 lb. steamed shrimp (I used small canned, like my Mom did)
1/2 lb. ham
In a large saucepan bring the water to a boil, add the rice. Lower the heat to medium and cook for 18 minutes. Let the rice cool completely.
Slice the pork in thin strips, about 1/4 inch wide and 1 inch long. Slice the ham in the same manner. Cook the eggs into very thin omelets, almost like crepes, and slice the same way. Chop the green onions in small pieces, both white and green part.
