Love the bacon! And raisins ... that sounds really good. I have been eating quite a bit of rice (yay for the rice cooker!) so I might just gather the energy and mojo to do this this weekend. Thank you for sharing!
Most everybody knows that fried rice must be done with cold leftover rice for good results. I seldom plan that far ahead so in a pinch I've found I can cook it and spread it out on a cookie sheet and stick it in the freezer for a while. Maybe everyone here knows that, but a new cook reading here may not.

I guess I have read more than several times you can freeze rice. I gotta remember this. On days I want fried rice in the winter, I just set a covered Tupperware container on the back step. While I wish it were otherwise, it appears increasingly this winter this option is available to more people.
