I went berserk at Trader Joe's yesterday, my daughter and I made the 3 hour round trip to go there yesterday.

So I ended up having a bowl of their creamy tomato soup with shredded smoked gouda, and some potstickers. Pretty yummy.

I had leftover chicken fajita filling from earlier this week, so I made rice and topped it with the chicken, peppers and onions and topped that with shredded extra-sharp cheddar and sour cream. Guacamole and tortilla chips on the side.

Couple of thin, pork loin chops, cubed and fried, set aside. 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice, seasoned with salt, five-spice, and ginger while boiling, bias sliced carrot, celery, and sliced onion. Add sliced water chestnut, and bamboo shoots. Season with salt, ginger, and garlic. stir-fry it all until the veggies are crisp/tender.

Rice is done. Add the meat to the veggies and serve. Pork Stir fry with jasmine rice. That's what we had for supper.

Hint, use the 5-spice powder, and ginger sparingly. It will not be noticeable in the rice, but will enhance the natural rice fragrance. Couple that flavor with the salt and it becomes really great rice.
