#5 on my lazy rotation is Yellow Rice (also known as Saffron Rice)
I prefer "Vigo" brand, as its out of Tampa and the best one by my standards
Family packet of Yellow Rice
can of peas
can of black beans
Old Bay (not a necessity, but I'm from Maryland, where we know Old Bay makes everything taste better)
Water (amount is on the package)
Add everything together, bring the water to a boil and simmer for 20 min
5 minutes of work
#6 Fake-out chow mein
OK, so this might not really be anything like chow mein, but its close enough for me.
|These are 2 types of chinese noodles I"ve found|
Cook the noodles and the vegetables together: 3 minutes. They're just like ramen noodles except they don't have any fat, where as ramen packets are friend noodles.
Drain. Add the oyster sauce and soy sauce to taste. Add the shrimp.
lots cheaper than take-out
