8 more days………..you done with your holiday shopping yet?
I’m in the same boat as you on this one, I’m about halfway.

 

 

Got the immediate family and friends covered and now I gotta hit the outer banks, if you know what I mean.
Almost therrreeeee…

 

Wouldn’t it be great if you just fucking go to one store and get EVERY gift you need, and they have the lady down there wrapping them for you, just bang it out in like 4 hours…..wouldn’t that be great?

And I mean like nice gifts too, this wouldn’t be some cheap ass store.

 

And then you take your gifts, all nicely wrapped with bows and ribbons, and you walk towards the back of the store and hand them to the postman, you give him an address list, he mails it to everyone on your list and you walk away with your hands in your pockets humming under your breath.

That’d be sweet, right?

 

 

Then you can just sit back and enjoy life.
Maybe do some cardio for all that BOOZE you’re gonna be drinking on Christmas.

This is suuuper quick so I didn’t really take any in-process pictures for this one but you owe to yourself to put this on someone’s table this holiday season.

This recipe makes about 4 servings and you don’t have to stop at these two ingredients.

Add whatever other colorful vegetables you have…. crack an egg in it if you want that real fried rice emphasis.

  1. I”m so making this! I’m always looking for ways to use up the dill from our garden AND we love cabbage. I never would have thought to do this, but I bet it’s amazing. Thanks!

  2. WTF??? Please delete my first comment as my computer decided I wanted to post an incomplete comment. ANYWAY, I’m mostly done but I wanted to thank you for the gentle reminder as I hadn’t ordered my grandmom’s flowers yet and now I just did!

    Honestly, my main concern is all of my gifts getting to my parents’ house in time because their local post office has been less than reliable lately, I’m waiting on one package that hasn’t made an appearance yet, but otherwise I’m in good shape, thankfully.

    Great photos, per usual!

  3. I’m done! I could get two or three small things but the world won’t burst into flames if I don’t! I still have decided if I’m going to do Christmas baking!
    The rice looks delicious, it could make a wonderful base for a turkey stuffing too! Or as you mentioned, a poached egg with a slice of smoked salmon and a dollop of sour cream!

  4. That would be a dream if there was a store like that. I would pay extra too…I mean you would save so much time, it’s ridiculous! I’m still running around picking up last minute gifts. Your dill rice looks so yummy, I’ve never thought to add fresh dill to rice before. I’ve done fresh thyme and pears before, definitely need to try dill! Hope you have a great week!

  5. Thank you for this. I eat rice all the time, and I honestly can’t go a day without it. Time to give it a different taste. I have to try this. I have tried Cilantro but not Dill yet.

Go on, get it out..
