#13. Learn to cook pineapple fried rice.

I haven’t abandoned the list. I’m still working on a few things. Unfortunately a good portion of the list requires two things I don’t have enough of right now, money and time.

I don’t consider myself a cook by any means, but I can follow a recipe. That’s why I figured this would be relatively easy to accomplish. What I didn’t realize is that something as simple as rice can be easily screwed up if you don’t know what you’re doing. My first few attempts at steaming rice resulted in a gloppy mess, but now I have the hang of it.

There are several pineapple fried rice recipes to be found on the internet and each one is different. I took bits from several of them, omitting ingredients I don’t care for, and assembled my own. Almost every recipe I found called for fish sauce. I haven’t been able to find it at any grocery store so I left it out.

I’ve fixed it several times over the last couple of months. It’s not Royal House quality, but it’s pretty good. Once I get the ingredients down it should be even better.
