What's Cooking?: My Dad's Fried Rice

My father was the chef in our house as we were growing up. He was a great cook and taught me both Chinese and American cuisines.  I remembered standing by his side as he was cooking, watching the measurements and portions he used.  Without any recipes, you learn what it means to add “a little bit of this or a handful of that”.  Whenever I make his classic meat loaf, a pork roast nestle on a bed of roasted vegetables or the uniquely tasting spaghetti made in a wok, sweet memories come back to me. Yet, it was his fried rice that I remember with a nostalgic comfort.  My Dad’s fried rice was the best.

A Little Dark Reading

Skull and bookWhat are you afraid of?  I don't mean your day-to-day worries and trepidations-- what truly scares you?  What things freeze you in your tracks and twist your stomach, make your breath come short, your heart race, your limbs tremble, your blood run cold?  Come now, even the bravest of us have things that they fear.  (As John Wayne used to say, "Courage is being scared to death and saddling up anyway.")
