Made a quick and easy dinner today as I wasn’t in the mood for anything elaborate (and also because my noodles got old and spoilt in the fridge). And hubby dearest suggested we made some Fried Rice and voila! I made it. Added carrots, broccoli, beans and spring onions to increase the nutrient meter. What did you have for dinner?
