Fried Rice

I will apologize in advance for not taking any more pictures that this. Usually, I do. However, we had company over tonight, and I had about 80 things going on at once. You're lucky to get any pictures. :) This fried rice is really good, and I thought you might enjoy the recipe. Here she blows...

Fried Rice:
2 T vegetable oil
1/4 c chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 t ground ginger
3 c cooked rice
1 T soy sauce
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/3 c frozen peas
1/4 c shredded carrot or little carrot cubes
1/2 c diced ham

Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add the cooked rice and soy sauce. Stir around and cook for another couple minutes. Make a well in the middle of the rice and add the beaten eggs. Lightly scramble them until the are completed cooked. Mix the cooked eggs in with the rest of the rice. Add the peas, carrot, and ham. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the peas, carrots, and ham are heated through- about ten minutes.

You can also use chopped pork, mini shrimp, or any other kind of meat that goes well with fried rice. It's a simple recipe, but it's a good'n.

I'm anything but Asian, so I don't have all the skills they have, but hey! You can eat this and unlike a post-Panda Express dinner, you won't be sick to your stomach for four hours. :)
