A few weeks ago I fixed Farm Diva’s Chicken Fried Rice recipe for dinner. It was delicious and with a Lowcountry sweetie that was raised up on rice I had made more rice than I needed in her recipe. The leftover white rice sat in the fridge for a day or two and then one evening in a desperate-for-a-side-dish mode I looked in the fridge, saw it AND left over canned pumpkin and voila! Inspiration hit remembering how yummy the Chicken Fried Rice was and the result was Pumpkin Fried Rice. Easy, satisfying and reasonable – you might like it too!
