Fried rice is one of the easiest and tastiest meals to whip up in a jiffy. Plus I can dump all the left over overnight food to fry with the rice. My fried rice normally consists of chicken breast meat from the roast chicken (siu kai fan) that we take away for lunch (no one touches chicken breast meat but when they are all chopped up and fried with rice, every bit of the meat will be polished off!), sweet corn kernels (from left over sweet corn on cob that we buy from the night market), diced carrots (add sweetness to the fried rice), chopped sawi, eggs and sometimes I will fry some crispy anchovies as topping. Oh not forgetting some chopped spring onions. We all love spring onions and I will sprinkle loads of them into our dishes. They are nutritious and add flavor to the food.

But she was a very good grandma – very thrifty, creative, innovative, very strict but loving and a very good cook. I miss her a lot.
