Stir Friday: Shrimp and Vegetable Fried Rice

That’s right, Archer fans, it looks like Stir Friday happened in my kitchen tonight. I didn’t even think of it when I saw the container of leftover rice in the fridge. Looks like it was just meant to be! I used things I had on hand, and it came together pretty quickly, other than defrosting and peeling the shrimp. My family really enjoyed this after a fun day out and about. If I would have had some green onions and bean sprouts on hand, I definitely would have added those, but this was pretty tasty as is.
