When I say huge, I guess I need to be a bit more specific. I started with about 6 cups of cooked rice and around the same amount of raw veggies. I filled my bowl 4 or 5 times. Very very full.
Of course, I cooked it at like 8am. And I ate it all day. So it wasn't j. with the wok in the bedroom, scarfing down rice and veggies.
But I'm still thinking that maybe eating all my fried rice in one day wasn't the smartest move ever. Mainly because it means I now have to cook again. I was kinda planning on the fried rice covering lunches for about a week. Instead it covered a halfling's collection of meals including a final bowl right before I fell asleep.
Good news from that is I got plenty of protein yesterday. And oodles of calories, too. Maybe not as many as I should (veggies and soy sauce are surprisingly low-cal) but since I only cooked once yesterday, I'm still calling it win. I probably could have topped off my day with a bowl of oatmeal, but I just can't face it yet.
Bad news is that the vat of fried rice probably cost more than a dollar to make. I think. The .25 for half an onion is what pushes it over, I think. The oil, cabbage, garlic, rice, carrots, and soy sauce all fit under $1 without the seriously spendy onions. I think. But if it was over a dollar, at least it wasn't by much. It was probably about $0.25 per ~1 pint serving. And I doubt it costs much more for a restaurant to make it (well, other than about 20 cents each worth of egg and meat)
I totally need to go back to my desert plan. Wonder if I can make any cookies with what I already have... I'm thinking probably not. Anyone know of a cookie recipe that doesn't need eggs, juice, abba sauce, or "butter"? I've got oil and vanilla, and I can make "milk" but after that it's pretty basic in my pantry.
