Pork and Veggie Fried Rice

pork and veggie fried riceWhat a busy week! Our menu plan for the week required some alterations because of my work schedule. We got to the end of the week with more veggies in the refrigerator than I expected. Since one can’t roast spinach, I decided to try a fried rice dish instead. I dug out everything I could find, chopped it up, and combined it with some leftover teriyaki pork and rice. Yum!
