renee birchfield rice stir fry

ARWB member Renee Birchfield shares her step-by-step method for making stir-fried rice on her blog If Spoons Could Talk

Stir-fried rice is a popular dish not only when dining out, but also for making in our homes. With a little ingenuity, rice, a few vegetables and a bit of protein, if desired, you can whip up a tasty and filling meal for your family in a short amount of time. 

“Stir-Frying is defined as frying rapidly over high heat while stirring briskly. It is the Chinese version of the French’s sauteeing, typically done in a wok over high heat.  If you don’t have a wok though that is ok, but if this becomes a common method of cooking for you I recommend that you get a good quality one as it does help when cooking.”

Best of Nancy

September 26, 2016

Thanks for reading my posts this month! Each week has given me a challenge as I considered my blogging journey, daily life, and favorites.

Some of my favorite blog posts cover the topics of prayer, hope, and perspective.

Knowing God as my refuge has given me peace and hope. When I faced a cancer diagnosis or navigated end-of-life issues with my parents, I knew God as my trusted refuge.

In August 2015 I had another unexpected surgery and needed to trust God for the results.

Many times we need an adjustment to our perspective of life. My most popular post is about one about perspective.

Here are a few more of my favorites.

Rick and I were keynote speakers at a marriage conference recently, and had a photo shoot afterwards. We plan on writing a book using the material.

The other photos are of my favorite little people, our five grandchildren. Our kids are pretty special, but these days the little ones steal my heart!

These days you can buy your own curry pastes in the grocery store, but there is something sort of nourishing about crushing the garlic and […]

In the Kindergarten Classroom

September 22, 2016

Did you know they don’t take naps in kindergarten anymore? It’s true! They spend those extra minutes learning sight words, factoring addition problems, and focusing on how to become upstanding citizens. Kindergarten has come a long way from the days we learned glue was not food. Although last month marked my second time to fight […]
