All right, stop begging! I’m finally going to post my mom’s Shrimp Fried Rice recipe!  I know I’ve dangled pictures of it on instagram (manytimes) long enough.  So I apologize for the wait!  If you eat gluten-free, you’re in luck because it is!  If you’re paleo, maybe you can have some rice on your cheat day. :)
