Sorry, guys.

I know.

ANOTHER freezer recipe.

But.

I’ve been in London for two weeks now.

And the last thing I want to do is cook when I get back to the States.

So I’m pulling out the lasagna rolls up, the sour cream chicken enchiladas and this fried rice IMMEDIATELY.

And the fried rice is conveniently packed in individual servings.

All you have to do is pull out your Ziploc sandwich baggies, pack/freeze, then throw it into a hot skillet and heat until warm through.

You can even jazz it up and throw in a fried or scrambled egg.
