It's nice having ingredients in the fridge that don't go bad in three days. I don't know about you, but it's not always clear when I'll be home for dinner again. And then the mood strikes for a late-night snack,, which is where this Chinese sausage and broccolini fried rice comes in.

It's nice having ingredients in the fridge that don't go bad in three days. I don't know about you, but it's not always clear when I'll be home for dinner again. And then the mood strikes for a late-night snack, which is where this Chinese sausage and broccolini fried rice comes in.

Keep Chinese sausage around — the kind you buy at most Asian markets come individually wrapped and last for-e-ver. Just when you think there's nothing in the fridge to give your fried rice that meaty, porky punch that every fried rice deserves, there it is. And the broccolini in my fridge, which was both present (important) and slightly limp (far less important) added color, crunch and of course, the all-important vegetable component.

Make this with white, brown or Jasmine rice. Any medium-grain rice will do, as long as it's not fresh. Seriously, don't try this with fresh rice. It'll just fall apart.
