WHAT I USED:
For the bags I purchased the ones below on Amazon. I also decided to purchase a sealer for extra security for the bags since I was mailing them. I really didn't want my family to open the box and find all the ingredients had merged together. But that could be my OCD talking :).
As far as the labels. I made them myself. I used Adobe Illustrator to make them, but it's just as easy to use Microsoft Office. Just open a new document, draw a text box and insert the text. Make sure the border on the box is a little thicker and then when you cut them out, cut just outside the line leaving a white border. I used full sheet sticker paper in my ink jet printer.
3 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
4 eggs, whisked
2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
1 small white onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
4 cups cooked and chilled short grain rice
4 green onions, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon teaspoons oyster sauce
P.S. Most Fried Rice recipes include peas - I am not a big fan of peas so I don't make it with them. If you would like to make it traditionally, add 1/2 cup of peas when you add the carrots, onions, and garlic.
1.5 lbs ground turkey
1/2 cup chili powder
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onions diced
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 29 oz can diced tomatoes
1 29 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 small can tomato sauce
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 can rinsed & drained black beans
kosher salt to taste
In a large pot, heat olive oil on medium, add onions. Cook onions for about 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Add garlic, cook until fragrant - about 1-2 minutes. Add chili powder, cayenne pepper, and 1/2 tbsp kosher salt. Stir for about 2-3 minutes to bloom the spices.
Add stock and ground turkey. Stir until ground turkey is separated (no large chunks). Turn up to med-high heat, bring to boil. Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, and beans. Stir and bring back to a boil. Turn down to simmer, cover and cook for 30-45 minutes.
Taste and adjust the spices as needed.
