All the above plus taking care of all my kids and feeding them all week. Dag, I’m tired!

One might think that after all this activity, for lunch today, I might want to just eat an ordered in pizza. Au contraire! I wanted a wholesome meal but did not want to be on my feet. I put this dish together in about 10 minutes by using frozen and leftover foods. You can do it, too!

I can now rest easy, as most of the June mayhem has ended (and I did dine at my favorite Thai restaurant tonight, truth be told). Phew!

Asiany Shrimp with Spinach:

1/2 tsp grated ginger or prepared ginger
1 clove of garlic or 1/2 tsp prepared garlic
tsp peanut or canola oil
1 cup cooked leftover rice
1/2 cup frozen, peeled shrimp,
1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach
a few shakes soy sauce
optional: a few shakes furikake rice seasoning (literally pronounced “furry Kaki”, no joke, found in Asian food stores)
one TBS sunflower seeds or chopped nuts

In a frying pan, place the peanut oil.
Add the garlic and ginger and stir.
Add the cooked rice and stir a bit.
Put in the frozen spinach and the frozen shrimp.
Cover with the lid for about 3-5 minutes so the frozen food is steamed. Lift lid, stir a bit until the water is evaporated and add the soy sauce. STir, remove from heat and add on chopped nuts and furikake if you are using it.
