Simple Shrimp Fried Rice

If you are a regular reader of my blog then you know I I have a busy life with 3 kids and a husband.  This simple shrimp fried rice has been a life save this spring.  We’ve been so busy with soccer, lacrosse, and baseball and cooking dinner has been challenging some nights.  This is a great meal because you can have the ingredients in your freezer and pull them out last minute.  It’s the perfect backup meal when you don’t have anything planned.

I love meals like this!  So simple.  I also received an Instant Pot for a Christmas gift so I’ve been trying to use it more and more.  I made the rice in that while I was doing all the other cooking.  If you haven’t gotten an Instant Pot yet, I would suggest investing in one.  It is nice to set it and walk away.

This simple shrimp fried rice is great for a busy weeknight. It's the perfect one pot dish that your entire family will love.

I had never cooked with a wok, but my husband wanted one years ago when we did our wedding registry.  I slowly began using it more and more and now can’t live without it.  You can really cook a ton of things in it.  I’m needing a new wok and thinking about getting this one. Do you have one you could recommend?
