One would think that since I’m a food blogger I have an endless supply of weeknight recipes and I never run out of ideas. This is so wrong in every sense of any way. I’m just like you. I run out of ideas, get in a rut and really don’t want to make dinner at the end of a day.

Or do you know that feeling of going and getting groceries then when you get home you have nothing to make for dinner? That was me last week. Miss K and I went and got groceries and I had this wonderful meal plan figured out. You’d think this would be a piece of cake. By the time I got done dragging a kid around the grocery store after work. Hauling in the groceries and trying to entertain a kid I was exhausted. I pulled a frozen pizza out and threw it on the grill. Yes I did. Don’t judge. Miss K was ecstatic. She thinks it’s the best thing when we grill pizza and eat dinner out on the patio. In fact every time we sit on the patio she looks at me with big eyes and says Pizza, Pizza? I mean, I made her dream come true!

    Boy Howdy do I hear you that a giant blank spot can show up with the question—What’s for dinner tonight. I forget about fried rice. Its perfect because you can us what is on hand.

    • Julie Evink


      Yes and it’s a crowd pleaser!

  • Amy | Club Narwhal


    Julie, I feel like Pizza Eyes is me every single day 🙂 But this fried rice looks like an amazing alternate (and probably a little bit better for me in the long run)!

    • Julie Evink


      Haha glad others know what I’m going through!

  • Tanya Schroeder


    Ha! I find that after grocery shopping I never have any idea what to make for dinner and decide we should eat out! This is great way to have take out at home!!

    • Julie Evink


      I’m so glad other can commiserate with me!

  • Cathy@LemonTreeDwelling


    I’m the queen of grocery shopping, having full fridge and cupboards, and yet NOTHING to make for dinner! So annoying. I definitely need to add this fried rice to my “rotation”….it would definitely be a hit!!

    • Julie Evink


      Glad someone can relate to this problem!

  • Lora


    Where do you find “ready-to-serve garden vegetable rice”?

    • Julie Evink


      They come in packages usually by the Lipton Pasta mixes or Tuna/Hamburger Helper! Hope that helps 🙂

  • Sonja


    Looks so good, I can’t wait to try it! I have a question totally unrelated to food for you! Where did you get those cute bowls in the picture?
