clearing out the pantry

So here's the thing, in addition to not really feeling like cooking lately because I'm super tired most of the time - i also haven't been to the grocery store in weeks. seriously. (I'll be rectifying that this weekend, i have menus planned for every meal for the next two weeks.)
however, I've still managed to get by and I'm cleaning out the pantry and freezer of things i forgot i had that were save/cooked just in the nick of time. for example:

steak fried rice "Puerto Rican style":
1 cup cooked white rice (left over from Chinese takeout)
2 eggs
1/2 left over grilled steak, diced
2 to 3 TBSP Sofrito
1 to 2 TBSP butter
garlic powder
ground cumin
salt and pepper

melt 1 TBSP butter in large non-stick skillet, scramble eggs and add to skillet.
when eggs are nearly cooked add last TBSP of butter, teak and rice and mix well together.
season to taste with garlic, cumin and salt and pepper and add Sofritio.
cook until steak is warmed thoroughly and serve, makes 2 very generous servings.

i know it sounds like a hot mess, but it was tasty.

and ok, in the interest of full honesty, one week i brought more take-out than i wanted too, but otherwise I've been creative in the kitchen.
