Love the sound of rain.
I've been re-watching the entire series of Lost. I get obsessed with a series and have to watch it all as soon as I can! Before this it was Weeds. I re-watch Doctor Who every 6 months or so. I don't know what I'll watch after I finish Lost.
SO...for this obsessed with Lost while listening to the rain night....I share a recipe with you.
Southern Hospitality Fried Rice. Something different, uses things from the south like black-eyed peas and Crystal hot sauce. It could be southerned up a little more with some shredded collard greens..
I like the idea of playing around with fried rices. Something untraditional. I am thinking of trying a Santa Fe style rice next...
It's super easy. Just precook some brown rice or used leftovers. Open up a can of black-eyed peas, use frozen or again, leftovers. Canned tomatoes work great, but you could use fresh diced.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy it!
PS...rice was in my great-grandmother's China bowl....
