Last night, I planned on making a veggie stir fry for dinner, but I found a recipe for veggie fried rice, so I made that instead. This is the first time that I have made fried rice and I was really happy with how it came out.


  • 1 (5.3 oz) bag of quick cooking brown rice
  • 1 (12 oz) package stir fry vegetables
  • 4 green onions cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 tbsp lite soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp orange juice


  1. Cook rice according to package directions and drain well. 
  2. Saute veggies in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat for four minutes or until tender crisp.
  3. Add garlic and ginger to veggies and saute 1-2 minutes
  4. Add rice and cook 3 minutes, or until heated through.
  5. Push rice to the sides of the pan, making a well in the center.
  6. Add eggs to the center of the mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 minutes or until eggs set. Stir eggs into rice and veggies.
  7. Stir in soy sauce and orange juice.
  8. Enjoy!

After dinner, I went out in search of the Ben & Jerry’s Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream that I have been hearing about. I went to three different stores and wasn’t able to find it.

Hi, my name is Heather. I am addicted to ice cream.

Who seriously does to three different stores looking for ice cream? Can you say crazy?!

I didn’t find the ice cream, but Meijer was handing out cool pink Purina bandanas for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I came home and put it on the dog.

Doesn’t he look cute? Danny is intensely watching the Bears game back there. If the game hadn’t been on , I don’t think that he would have let me put a pink bandana on his dog, but he wasn’t paying attention. I think he looks cute.


Doesn’t Danny look crazy in the background and doesn’t Tyson look like he wants to eat you? Happy family.
