Fried rice (Com chien)

My wife Sandra, her sister and my MIL all have an hair appointment in the morning. So I had the pleasure of baby sitting my two month old daughter, Chelsea for the next couple or so hours. This was the very first time I have had the responsibility and care of Chelsea by myself. It was a great opportunity to bond one on one-daddy and daughter  time. The task and instructions were fairly simple, make sure she is feed, cleaned and put to bed. With the little precious feed, nappy changed and fast asleep. I took the opportunity between her next feed to make lunch.

In the rice cooker were some cold left over rice from last night. Immediately fried rice came to mind, it was the obvious choice. Cold and slightly dried out overnight rice make the perfect fried rice as the rice grain separate easily. A quick look in the fridge, I gather a couple eggs and some Chinese sausages that was sitting in the back of the draw. The great thing about fried rice is that, it's a fantastic way to use up bits and pieces of left overs, like last night roast chicken, the odd piece of bacon or the last carrot that has been sitting in the veggie bin since gods know when. Just dice it all up and toss them all together with some rice, a couple of eggs and you'll end up with an incredibly delicious meal. 

It never crossed my mind to post this dish up, being fairly simple and uncomplicated. Perhaps I took for granted because of it's simplicity, but sometimes keeping it simple is a great thing and perhaps it's something I should do more often.
