Ms. Ann, who owns the blog Ann Ordinario: Wife, Mom, PT (Celebrating Life), with her blog post: Dinner at Tony Roma's Ribs Seafood Steak

Ribs, seafood, and who wouldn't be enticed by those three yummy words! Plus of course those tempting shots...if you want to learn more, then do visit Ms. Ann's blog. I love her header (though of course it has nothing to do with the featured post, lol. I just love how she personalized it) and the simple and elegant lay-out of her blog. Expect not only yummy food posts, but also some amazing nature shots!

This week's food post is Fried Rice (with cheese, squash and tofu). I know, kind of weird, right? ;)


  • steamed rice
  • squash (cut into thin strips)
  • tofu (sliced and fried)
  • cheese slices (I used cheddar cheese)
  • scrambled eggs
  • cooking oil, pepper and salt
  • fish sauce (optional)


  • I marinated the tofu slices overnight first (soy sauce, paprika, mixed herbs: rosemary, sage, thyme, and basil), then fried them. After letting them cool, I sliced them thinly.
  • while waiting for the pan to become hot, prepare the rice (usually we use leftover steamed rice for this dish; much easier to handle). Just a matter of separating the grains, making sure it will be heated through.
  • Saute the squash slices; this wouldn't take long, adding a bit of salt, if you want. Remove and place together with the tofu.
  • Cook the scrambled eggs, then remove and place together with the tofu and squash.
  • Usually the scrambled eggs will absorb all the oil, so you need to add another tablespoon or so of cooking oil.
  • Once hot, add the rice and stir to make sure it's heated through. Add salt and pepper, if you want.
  • Add the scrambled eggs, squash, and tofu to the rice and mix again. I added fish sauce at this point. Once you're satisfied, transfer to a serving plate. Top with sliced cheddar cheese.
  • Enjoy together with your viand.

I paired the fried rice together with some fresh tomato slices and fish (cooked in a bit of water, vinegar, salt, pepper, chili, and lots of garlic).  :)
