We’re right in the middle of spring but this week has been feeling more like summer around here. I love warm temperatures and all the fun that comes with it. But at this very moment, I am still only beginning my spring cleaning.
The summer-like activities are going to have to wait until I’m done with all the cleaning, decluttering and organizing!
Have I mentioned that I find spring cleaning fun? I do!!
The act of cleaning ones home of impurity and clutter, revitalizes me. It feels like I’m dropping dead-weight and fills me with a special energy.
When I start spring cleaning, I always begin in the kitchen. Mostly because it is the one place in the house I buy stuff for every week. I feel it is important to clear and clean the kitchen first so that when I go grocery shopping the next time, there is free room for the food.
So let me give you the spring cleaning tip, clear out and clean the fridge first.
For this, you’ll need a stack of Bounty Quick-Size Paper Towels at home. You are really going to need a paper towel that is strong, absorbs well and helps you get the job done! I only trust Bounty. Keep on reading to see how you can get these for major savings right now!
Once the fridge is clean, you’ll probably have an insane number of containers of leftover food and ingredients that will be perfect to make this recipe! I remember when I was young back in the Dominican Republic, my aunt used to clean out her fridge and on that day, she would always cook Chofán (Chow Fan).
Chofán is simply Dominican Style Fried Rice. There is a very big community of Chinese immigrants in the Dominican Republic and over the years some of our foods have been influenced by Chinese culture.
So, do like my aunt did. Clear out your fridge and use the leftover chicken and rice to cook this delicious fried rice.
Now for the deal I mentioned above…
