Lyd's Ham Fried Rice

This is a great way to get those veggies in. You can make it even "healthier" by using brown rice, but you still geat a great taste! This is a family favorite- just throw in what you like! Feel free to use more or less of what I list. This is just a general amount that seems to work.

Lyd's Ham Fried Rice
About 1 cup sliced ham (any kind works)
2-3 grated carrots
2-3 celery stalks, slices (Doug said next time he wants more celery and less peas- guess it just depends)
1 small onion, chopped
1-2 T olive oil
6 T soy sauce, divided (I'm a salt adict so I like a lot, but use it to taste)
2 eggs, beaten
1 bag (more or less) frozen peas
4-5 cups cooked rice

In a large pot (probably your biggest so everything will fit in there) fry up everything (ham and veggies) execpt the eggs, rice, peas, and 3 T Soy Sauce. Simmer over medium heat in the oil until veggies get cooked through. In a small bowl, beat eggs for 1 minute and throw them in as well. Continue to stir and cook until eggs are also cooked. Then just stir in the rice, peas, and a bit more soy sauce to taste until they are heated through. Now you're ready to serve. Easy Shmeezy Lemon Squeezy!

It makes great left overs too... I'm actually eating a bowl for lunch right now! :)
