Egg Fried Rice

It’s a great side dish, but add some chicken or shrimp and it can easily turn into a main. I love how versatile this rice dish can be. I’ve never looked through my pantry or fridge and thought I need to make a special trip to the grocery store. Sometimes I just add carrots, sometimes…
