Tuesday is pick up shopping day. Our foot nurse comes in the morning and later I go down to collect my order. The website for this leaves a lot to be desired. There are all kinds of little things not working. For instance I can build my order on my desktop but when I am ready to submit it, I have to use my Kindle Fire to do so, it just will not work on my desktop for some reason. Another weird thing, I sign in and it tells me the password doesn't match the email address. However, it still opens up my order. As I say, lots of little things which are a bit aggravating.
We just watched The Prisoner of Zenda which was made in 1952. I actually quite enjoyed it. Lots of swashbuckling stuff with Stewart Granger playing two parts and Deborah Kerr his love interest. James Mason was the principal baddie. I always loved James Mason and thought he was a brilliant actor. This didn't disappoint.
We are going to find the lack of bowling a big hole in our week.
Shrimp Fried Rice
Cooking rice in broth is a simple way to infuse maximum flavour into this simple dish.
2 cups (500 mL) jasmine rice
1 carton Campbell's® 30% Less Sodium Ready To Use Seafood Broth
1 Tbs (15 mL) cornstarch
1 lb (454 g) peeled and deveined shrimp
1 Tbs (15 mL) sesame oil
1 Tbs (15 mL) ginger
6 green onion, chopped
1 cup (250 mL) frozen peas
2 each eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tbs soy sauce
1. In medium saucepan, bring rice and broth to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Set aside.
2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, toss cornstarch with shrimp until coated.
3. In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium high heat; add ginger and shrimp and cook shrimp just until opaque, about 3 minutes.
4. Stir in rice, green onions and peas and cook to heat through. Pour egg and soy sauce over top and cook for one minute more. The heat from rice will cook egg.
Serve with lime wedges and crushed peanuts if desired.
This recipe keeps well in the fridge and will taste just as delicious as leftovers.
Have a great day
