Pan Fried Rice

There are several strong  points that make pan fried rice a dish that love to prepare regularly. Firstly it is a great way to make 

good use of leftovers from the previous day, secondly it is a very 

versatile dish and helps creating space in the fridge and deep freeze by using lots of ingredients that have been crowding them. So when I got an unmistakable message that I needed to do something about the chaos in the fridge and freezing department of our humble abode, I decided it was time for another installment of pan fried rice.
