Gee! If you ask me "Are you that busy even to make fried rice?" Unfortunately the answer is Yes, I am.
I really am busy at the moment (that make me wish that one day is 30hours). I am now in the middle of learning AutoCAD so I am able to draw for my thesis. I knew about this software from a long time ago, but never care about it but now. Lucky me that my better half is good in it and he is really good in delivering knowledge as it helps me a lot in understanding the subject.
Back to the fried rice, three friends of mine in blogosphere Ayin at AG'S Food, Deta at ...mLebu paWoN... and Shinta at .:Berkreasi di Dapur Mungil:.. are organizing an event called "Masak Bareng Yuukk..!!!" (Let's Cook Together) and I've been skipped two months of the event though I've promised them to join with many reason. Now, for this month, the theme chosen from voting is nasi goreng (fried rice) and no excuse for sure since to make nasi goreng is easy and quick. This reason is one of my reason to delay it, since it needs one hour to be done.
I kept on delaying until today in the morning my reader is full with various nasi goreng recipes. I almost gave up with another excuse since today I had to make a cake for my friend's birthday. But, I felt embarrassed to skip again as I don't want to break my promise to them for the third times. Enough!
After delivering the cake to my friend at the university (yes, he celebrated his birthday with his colleagues there) and dropped by at my office, I went home and slept. Yup, instead of directly cooked the fried rice, I preferred to sleep as the weather outside was cold and I was tired for getting up early making the cake and cleaning my kitchen afterward. I set my alarm at 2:30PM, but turned it off when it buzzed to wake me up. Fast forward, I got up from bed at 3:30PM and started making fried rice at 4PM.
The idea of making this fried rice has been in my mind since nasi goreng was voted as March's theme. I just used simple spices for it and made it colorful (yellow, green, red). It is really quick and easy but for sure tasty. If you don't believe me, please just try it at home. Since the recipe is created by me, this oyster sauce fried rice goes to my dear friend Lore of Culinarty with her Original Recipes Round-up monthly event.
