Pork Fried Rice

We are getting so close to the end of the month! Man, it went by fast. The end of the month means that I am scrambling to stretch my fridge and pantry contents to last until April 3rd. I always make it but sometimes it gets pretty tight. Oh the joys of living on a limited income!
One of our favorite meals is pork (or any protein) fried rice. It's comfort food for me. It brings back memories of my Grandmother taking me to our favorite Chinese restaurant. I always go pork fried rice. It's tasty, filling and hits all the right notes and it's a marvelous meal stretcher and goes great with gluten free egg rolls!

The beautiful thing about fried rice, is anything goes. Use what you have on hand. I love mung bean sprouts but I was out so I subbed edamame.
