Recipes

I love food! Growing up I was always so picky, wouldn't try anything new and barely ate anything that wasn't meat and potatoes. However since moving away from home I've greatly broaden my horizons and eat so many different foods now, not to mention an eagerness to try new things. It all started with college, living in residence you're forced to try new food when your only free meal is from the cafeteria (not technically free but already paid for out of your college fees) so it was eat what they served or starve. Then after college Kristen and I moved in together and Kristen will eat just about anything (I am NOT exaggerating) so there was always something new and interesting to try since he ate such a variety of foods that I didn't even hear of up until that point.

Being on our own for the first time, I knew how to cook (because I love cooking, I would help mom with dinner most days) but I didn't have much of a variety with my cooking. Kristen and I were getting to the point that chicken and rice needed to be kicked up a bit. That started my fasination with recipes and trying new recipes....most don't turn out and most don't get added to the weekly rotation of meals but I still have to give it a chance, cause every once in a while a new recipe is awesome and is a KEEPER!

Also the third wednesday of every month, the office girls get together and have potluck, everyone is assigned a category for that month; dessert, appetizer, main dish, or salad. It's the perfect opportunity to try a new recipe for free! If one of the girls make something that I love, it usually leads to a recipe exchange and something that I cannot wait for the hubby to try. So with all of that being said....I'm going to try to post a recipe every now and then, I would say once a week but I don't want to commit to it and then end up forgetting :) Here's my first recipe, I'm just calling it "Mom's Rice" cause it was the way she always made rice...

Mom's Rice

1 cup rice (your preferance white, brown, etc)
1 onion
1 can of corn - drained (peaches and cream are my preferance)
1-2 cloves of garlic (optional)
1 egg
3-4 slices of bacon
Soya sauce

Cook rice according to pkg directions, set aside.
In pan or wok fry the onion, garlic and bacon, when it's almost cooked add the egg. When fully cooked add the corn only long enough to heat through. Now add your rice and mix everything together, add soya sauce to taste and serve :) Easy and yummy!
