China
Sam’s Fried Rice
3 cups cooked white rice (day old or leftover rice works best!)
3 tbs sesame oil
1 cup frozen peas and carrots (thawed)
1 small onion, chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup soy sauce

On medium high heat, heat the oil in a large skillet or wok.  Add the peas/carrots mix, onion and garlic. Stir fry until tender. Lower the heat to medium low and push the mixture off to one side, then pour your eggs on the other side of skillet and stir fry until scrambled. Now add the rice and soy sauce and blend all together well. Stir fry until thoroughly heated!   **You could really play around with this rice too! Try adding some diced ham, or green onion

Italy
Chicken Carbonara
1 package thick sliced bacon (cooked and crumbled)
1 package pasta (angel hair, fettucini or spaghetti)
2/3 of an 8 oz container parm/romano cheese
1 (16 oz) container heavy cream
1-2 lbs chicken breast, cubed
1-1 1/2 cup chicken broth
pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and rosemary to taste

Cook the bacon first, saving the drippings.  Brown the chicken with seasonings and 1/2 of the bacon drippings.  Set aside when cooked through, careful not to overcook chicken.  Put pasta on to boil.  To make the sauce, add the heavy cream, other half of bacon drippings, parm cheese, 1/4 cup chicken broth, more seasonings.  Be careful if you choose to use any salt because the cheese and the bacon have a lot of salt.  Cook over low to medium heat until bubbly.  Stir until done.  Be careful not to burnt he sauce.  When the noodles are done, drain them and add a pat or two of butter to keep the noodles from sticking.  Throw all ingredients together: pasta, crumbled bacon, sauce, chicken and add rest of chicken broth to desired consistency if needed.  The dish will thicken upon standing.
