From eggs to chinese food

So blogging is frustrating to me as I cannot get my pictures how i want them. Plus I am already posting on facebook and on Just Mommies so blogging is a ways out there and besides it is not like any one is looking here any ways and since I can get a nice recorn on JM why do I want to come here? Well just in case you are here or I come back and look i am going to try again.
Any as you might be able to tell from the title we have advance from Eggs to Chinese food. Yes eggs are excellent for food storage as we do have laying hens but Chinese food is rice and I have what 400lbs last count.
Following our porridge theme my first recipe was Jook AKA Rice porridge and to tell you the truth it was very difficult to fine this recipe. As you can see why, it isn't really a recipe just a new ratio. 1 cup rice to 9 cups water and OMG I can feed my family breakfast for a week particularly as they did eat much. Any way since it takes so long to cook I tossed it in the crock pot the night before and it was ready in the morning. NICE.
Wayne ate his Jook Chinese style with soy sauce, green onions, and left over pork, I ate mine American style with maple brown sugar and butter. The kids I dressed with nasty fake blueberry syrup. Scarlett ate hers, Beau wanted to feed himself.
Wayne says he'll eat potatoes, which we bought way cheaper than rice (potatoes .10lb rice .52lb) and we can grow more potatoes, rice not so much.
We also made homemade egg rolls. They were great! Since I have a pasta roller I could make the skins from scratch too. Any way these were delicious!
