Shrimp and Egg Brown Rice

One pot rice meal…

On busy days, I tend to make one pot meals as it’s easy to make and a plate of it will have everything that I need. I’ve been very busy lately  and so not able to multi task. As my defense date is nearing, I’m focusing and worrying more about that. Just to refresh myself, I took a day off today and got the much needed rest. Also, Summer has come to an end and Fall is here. Temperature has dropped down from 30 C to 10 degrees C, I am not enjoying this drop. It’s going to take a couple of weeks to get accustomed to the change though. The thought of wearing shoes and jackets itself is little depressing to me. However, the moment I see the first snow showers I’ll turn into a kid and will be seen enjoying the beautiful Winter weather 🙂

I made this shrimp and egg brown rice last weekend. I used brown rice instead of white rice as it’s more healthy than white rice. Added shrimp and also egg to the dish. It was easy to make, tasted delicious and filling.
