Last night I made Fried Rice with Asparagus and heated up some chicken tenders we had in the freezer to go with it. So really it became Chicken Fried Rice with Asparagus. and I must say - it was YUMMY!!! I think the fact that it was so cheap made it even yummier =).
I found the fried rice recipe for this meal on this great website, Poor Girl Eats Well while I was searching away last weekend. I'm hoping that I'll find lots more yummy and cheap things here in the future.
Her blog is awesome - this is a girl who's making meals for literally $1 or $2 per serving! And super yummy stuff too, with lots of veggies and protein. I have a lot to learn from her.
I'll let you visit her sight for the full instructions, but here's some pics of my dinner in progress:

Boo again for making the total higher =(
On the plus side, I realized I actually had 3 eggs in the fridge, and a small amount of rice leftover too, so technically I think I could return the 1 1/2 dozen eggs for just a dozen and take the rice back too. But I think I'll use these ingredients elsewhere and save myself the trip. Lesson learned to look CLOSELY to the pantry before going to the store =)
Next time I think I'll double the recipe to make more leftovers. Speaking of leftovers, I've now got the remaining bundle of asparagus, scallions (a.k.a. green onions), and some white rice left. Now I just need to figure out how to use it so it doesn't go to waste!
