Scrambled Egg Rice – When Hunger Strikes

Scrambled Egg Rice – When Hunger Strikes

2013-02-061This scrambled egg rice is just about five minutes of work. Yet,the result was super-satisfying. All these days…I was juggling things & slaving around a lot,…which left me completely burnt out at the end of the day!! So, on one such occasion…I came up with this plan! Yes, cooking nothing and going to bed early! But, did I really stay asleep?? There you go, you guessed it right! Soon, I was raiding my kitchen. :( When nothing got my attention…got pretty mad at myself for not stocking any ready-to-eat kind of stuff. Well, finally decided to go with Plan-B option…that is, giving a quick twist to the left-overs! Magically, within no time this simple meal got ready.  And, surprisingly it also tasted good. Gosh, cooking skill is a such a gift. And am glad that I could take-care of myself. :)
