It's almost as old as I am. It smells worse than I do. Sometimes. It has a distinct stale starch smell. That can be fixed of course. Smother it in sauce. Sometimes we use the rice instead of sand at playtime. There is nothing like children that smell of old rice.
4 c. cooked rice
1/4 c. oil
Green onion-to taste (I often just throw in dried minced onion)
1 c. cooked diced meat (ham, pork, chicken)
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and chopped
1/2 c. frozen peas
1/4 c. Yoshida's Sauce
1 egg, lightly beaten
Place frozen peas in a heat proof bowl and pour boiling water over them. Let stand. Heat oil in a large fry pan. Saute onions. Add rice, stir and heat through. Add meat. Drain peas and mix in. Stir in Yoshida's Sauce. Add egg and stir until completely cooked.
