Before I had my daughter I always bought fresh vegetables and cut everything up for my mise en place. But now I reserve that level of dedication to my weekend food preparation. Instead, I like using shrimp in my basic friend rice, because I have it on hand in the freezer and it thaws in minutes. I also like to use frozen mixed vegetables because they are already cut to bite sized pieces and they cook up in minutes. I hope this recipe helps you as well when you are short on time and want to make something delicious for your family.
