I am always in the mood for Chinese food. I like to make my own Chinese dishes at home to save myself a night full of drinking water to make up for all that salt! I love fried rice and it’s very easy to make. Fried rice is best made with day old rice, but you can make the rice ahead of time and let it cool on the counter for an hour or in the freezer for 15-20 minutes on a baking tray. I don’t add any salt to this dish since oyster sauce has such a high sodium content.
