Well it's getting colder here though not THAT cold. A bit of the white stuff Sat. into Sunday. Oh and to answer your question about vegetable rice. It's just fried rice with tiny diced up carrots and probably other things and peas. It's what Americans, at least around here, think of as Chinese food along with chicken wings and spare ribs. authentic Chinese cooking is quite different.
I do not like cold...I'm such a wuss.
