Fried Rice - Bacon-style

The other day I cooked up a pot of rice only to realize that we had potatoes and gravy in the fridge that would go better with the main course (grilled brisket). So we tried to think of what we could do with 4-1/2 cups of cooked rice, and Russ said "Fried rice!" So here it is.

4-1/2 C cooked rice
1 small onion, diced
1 small green pepper, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
7-8 strips of bacon, cooked
3 eggs
2 large green onions
soy sauce to taste

In a large frying pan, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove from pan and crumble.

Saute the onions in the bacon grease.

Add eggs and cook. Add green pepper and celery. Add rice and mix all together.

Add soy sauce and blend. Add bacon and green onions.

Heat thoroughly. Serve hot.

Fresh Salsa

Is there anything better than fresh salsa? Can't you just smell the cilantro and chili peppers working together to create such utter joy and happiness? I can. Mostly because I just made some this weekend. And here's how:

2 Anaheim peppers
4 small orange chili peppers
5 roma tomatoes
1 medium onion
As much cilantro as you can handle
2 gloves of fresh minced garlic
Juice of 1 small line
salt & pepper to taste

Remove the stems and seeds of the peppers. You can leave some of the seeds, if you want your salsa to have more kick.

Cut tomatoes and onions into large chunks. Remove the long stem part of the cilantro and cut up some.

Put all ingredients in food processor and chop until it's the consistency you want.

Serve with chips.

Cut up a medium avocado and add AFTER you remove from food processor.
