Taste Test – Thai Kitchen Fried Rice

We gave this fried rice instant dish from Thai Kitchen a try during a quick hurried dinner one night. The instant rice is ready after a short microwaving and can be used as a ready made side dish. The shelf stable product although fully hydrated would be useful on a short canoe trip if the added weight is not an issue. It could be heated by immersing in a pot of boiling water.

An OK side dish if you are in a hurry but any homemade fried rice you would make would be much better. 5 out of 10.

White Lake State Park in Tamworth is a prime family vacation destination. The lake provides fun recreational activities like swimming, boating and fishing. The park is a 900 acre area surrounding the 125 acre White Lake. There are short hiking trails and non-motorized boat rentals available. Alex enjoyed his time with our family friends.
