Easy Ham Fried Rice

This is going to be one of the easiest dishes to make. Last night, I decided to make Ham Fried Rice, I normally make it with pork the way my Mother made it but was never like the restaurants. Our Dad, rest his soul would take us once in a while to San Fransico, those dishes just could not be beaten.  I was spoiled in that way.

Thanks to Theantiramen Blog I found a recipe for Chicken Fried rice that came out fairly good and one of the tricks was to cook the rice and let it get cold before using it.  That was a great tip.  I have tried this dish four times so far and I am getting closer. I have tried it with enriched long grain white rice that was washed prior to using and I also tried Minute Rice. That’s right! Minute Rice works like a champ.

Basic ingredients:
1 cup Minute Rice
1 cup water
Follow directions and let cool, ( I did find out with the minute Rice an hour in the fridge works well).

Ham cut into bite size pieces (just enough that is needed).
Soy Sauce
Garlic Salt
Pepper ( White Pepper is suggested)
Three large Grade A eggs

Instructions:
First cook the rice and let it cool.
While the rice is cooling, grab some ham and cut into bite-size pieces and store in fridge until needed.

When your ready and the rice has cooled for at least an hour, crack and scramble the three eggs and set aside, get a large frying pan, set burner to medium and coat with a small amount of Vegetable oil -not much.
Add the ham to pan and stir so ham will not burn, next add the rice and mix together.
For the eggs, I have tried it both ways, poured directly on the rice and ham, or scrambled first then added the eggs to the larger frying pan. Either way works. Once the eggs are added, add two dashes of garlic salt, two to three dashes of the pepper, mix together then add the soy sauce a little bit at a time until you get a light brown color. You don’t want to use too much of the soy sauce because it is a salty beast.

Options: Peas, Carrots, Bamboo shoots
Top with Green onions if you have them.

TROJAN BEWARE!

Here is the update from Microsofts Windows Defender. Once it finished it gave me the news, TROJAN it’s called the Rougejs/fakecall.D

The software was able to get rid of it which was found in temporary internet file\IES folder.  This was from just visiting the site this morning. Imagine what could have happened if I did called that Scam number, it could have been worse.

I did find the person’s Facebook page and sent them a polite message informing them that their Blog may have been compromised.

Here is the screen shot after it had been removed.

WordPress Bloggers Beware! There is a bad site out there! Part 3

This morning after getting the laundry and other things done, I entered that site and this time it crashed IE. So, before making a new video, I decided to clear out the cookies and all browser history within IE, then closed it. I then started IE again, then it happened again with the endless loop of no fast escape.

The new video from this morning can be seen here.

 

A PingBack -Found a New Photography Blog.

I was also hoping to do a reblog this morning that Tosha point me to.  However the person’s Blog does not have any like, reblog or press this button showing up on the post, I can only assume that is part of the new update that affected several WordPress Bloggers with the like button disappearing.

So, her name is Jane and her Blog is here:

Sometimes we take life for granted as well as our surrounding, we forget to take that moment and listen to our environment, marvel in the glorious wonder that surrounds us,

WordPress Bloggers Beware! -Last post for the night!

Pop up blockersThis will be my last post for the evening. Earlier, I found a site that we Bloggers need to be aware of so that our systems do not get infected or worse. In the screen capture, you will see that I used IE, Firefox and Google Chrome to demonstrate what is going on in the background on this Blog. In IE and Firefox, you can see that pop-ups are being blocked and in Google Chrome far right, you can see that fake ad that some of us are aware of from other sites around the globe.  I made a video earlier that is in the previous post, but for convenience, I will repost here as well.

 

WordPress Bloggers Beware! There is a bad site out there!

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, so share this one like no other. A person liked one of my posts, so I visited their site until my Google Crome Crashed. I made a video for all to see so that you will know what will happen if you visit this site.

Forgetful Minds -Old Age Humor Stories

Most of us being in our twenties to sixties have experienced a moment or two of Forgetful Mind Syndrome. The misplaced keys, searching for sunglasses while they are on top of one’s head the whole time. The misplaced cell phone found in various places, that note you just wrote seconds ago and you know it was right in front of you just moments ago but nowhere to be found to only show up at a later time when no longer needed, -it only gets worse as we age

Yesterday was Deb’s Mother and Step-father’s 24th anniversary, so we paid a visit with a card in hand and ritual blessings. After awhile of chatting and laughing, my cell phone notified me of some new followers (thank you my new friends 🙂 ), I showed Deb. Deb’s Mother Jan had a facial expression of curiosity upon her face, so Deb informed her Mother about my Blog and what it was about and gave a few examples, one of them was a post I did back in July, LEVITY -HUMOR AT MY EXPENSE. A TRUE STORY!. That is when Jan said, “You know what you can put on your Blog….” So this is with permission.

The day started like most other nothing out of the ordinary. Jan told her husband that she wanted to go to the store. Gene replied, “I’ll go” “nope, I’ll go by myself,” Jan said. So off she went. Once shopping was done and paid for, she exited the store and proceeded to load the car with the groceries. She headed back to the car and placed herself on the passenger side.  Are you following?

So there she was in the car sitting on the passenger side wondering why the car has not moved.  I busted a gasket on this one.

Funny how our minds function at certain times. At least the keys were not locked inside the car. Most of us have been down that road.

What can we take away from this? We have to be able to laugh at ourselves from to time, it does a body and mind good according to a study done in 2011.
