Sundried tomato herb dip

I bought a huge tub of sour cream from Costco and didn't want to go to waste. So I decided to make a dip that includes sundried tomatoes, without the heavy calories of cream cheese.
6 pieces of sundried tomatoes
2 garlic cloves
3/4 cups of sour cream
2 tsp basil
2 tsp oregeno
1 tsp parsley
place sundried tomatoes and garlic cloves into food processor, pulse until finely chopped. Add in sour cream, basil, oregeno, and parsley and continue to pulse. Use a spoon to push down the white sour cream from the side to make sure all content is mixed well. Should be light orange color. place mixture into a dipping container with lid. Refrigerate overnight and serve with biscuits or as i prefered, Triscuits (original or flavored).

kim chee fried rice

I Love Kimchee, in case you didn't noticed. We would buy the big jar from Costco and I would always try to find ways to cook with it instead of serving it as a side dish. (Kimchee soup, Kimchee pork, Kimchee chicken wings, haha)
3/4 cup of Kimchee (diced)
1/2 cup of diced meat, any kine leftovers you have is fine
(Pictured is portuguese sausage and roast pork)
1 tbsp chiracha sauce
2 tsp habanero sacue
2 cups rice (leftover is best)
1 tbsp shoyu
1 egg
1/4 cup veggies
dash of black peppers
2 tsp sesame oil
1) scrambled eggs, cooked, set aside
2) In a pot (or wok if you've got) stir fry diced meat
3) Add Kim chee, continue to stir fry
4) Add veggies, continue to stir fry
5) Add rice (I find it easier to microwave the rice so it's soft first)
6) drizzle the spicy sauces
7) add in shoyu
8) add in scrambled eggs, continue to stir fry
9) add pepper and sesame oil and stir a little more
10) plate, garnish with green onions if desired (i dont like green onions, yuck!)
