It's the season for candy corn, which makes me happy, cuz I love the stuff!

So, does have any recipes that use it?

I actually use canned fish a lot, because (tuna especially) works pretty well instead of chicken and it's cheaper.  So, quesodillas are good with canned fish, and pasta bakes, and rice balls. You could probably use salmon in omlettes, too.

Lol. It actually worked pretty well. I was most worried about the peas. But I think the sugar is important in not making it suck.
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Fried Rice w/ Peanut Butter Sauce (Super cheap meal) on: September 09, 2011 02:50:50 PM

I was babysitting at my sister's house for the second time this week, and she hadn't gone to the grocery store. I don't do Speghetti O's more than once a month >.>

So, I made a concoction out of whatever was in her pantry! Which wasn't much. She's lived there less than a week.

To start with, she bought 15lb of white rice, but has no rice cooker and no pot. I luckily had my rice cooker in the car, and so got 3 cups of rice started! Then I threw some peanut butter (roughly 4-5 tbsp) and some vegi oil (about 3 tbsp) in the wok on low/medium heat. (note - she has a wok but no pot. she also has only plastic spoons and forks, I ended up dipping out the peanut butter with her one ceramic knife. and no measuring tools.)

Next, I added diced tomatoes, English peas, and mushrooms! (1 can each) I wanted to add some peaches, but I gave up on using the can opener Cry

And it was stirred til everything was hot. It looked pretty iffy at this point. Then, I had to add 3 handfuls of sugar to make it not chalky tasting (around 1/2 cup), and then garlic powder and pepper.

Then I fried the rice in some soy sauce and more pepper:

And it was done!

It was actually very tasty. And my nephews ate it happily, which kind of surprised me (2 and 3 years old). Plus it was really cheap, this would probably make 6-8 servings.

Some notes, though:
Chopped onions or some sort of nut would be great in this, it could use more crunch.
And I probably wouldn't have needed sugar if I'd had the peaches, because they would have done that.
Mandarin oranges would be better that peaches, or apricots, maybe.

Have you tried quesodillas? They're really easy.
You really don't even have to follow a recipe, but here's a good place to start
