Doctor Who in first place with 62,532 notes! Congrats! 50 years and you’re still on top!
Harry Potter in second place with 60,565 notes! Just for once can you guys try to think Hufflepuff and be a little bit humble?
Supernatural in third place with 54,225 notes! Wow that’s a lot of Mishas…
BBC Sherlock in fourth place with 48,520 notes! But they don’t need an incentive.
Avengers in fifth place with 41,809 notes! Damn those aliens are screwed.
And honestly this last one may change and I wouldn’t normally include it but I am 100% biased towards it because I basically grew up in Disneyland…
Disney in sixth place with 37,747 notes! They’re not evil just because they like Star Wars! Grow up!

*mic tap* uh, the FR voice isn’t really my public style but as I wanted to give back to the blog that helped me restore my health this past year, I’ll give it a valiant effort.
THINK YOU’VE MASTERED FR’S WORLD-CONQUERING COCONUT RICE, DO YOU?
THINK AGAIN, SLACKHEART! I’M HERE TO TELL YOU THAT IT’S EVEN BETTER WHEN YOU EAT ITS EARTHLY REMAINS. GIRD YOUR LOINS AND SADDLE YOUR DRGONS MY COMRADE, FOR THIS IS A QUICK DISH WITH A BAFFLINGLY LONG RECEIPT.
TO BECOME A LEVEL 20 NECROMANCER YOU WILL NEED TO LOOT THESE FROM YOUR NEXT COMBAT MISSION:
A SUPERIOR FRYING PAN
A LESSER SAUCEPAN
SOME OF THAT COCONUT RICE YOU LOVE SO MUCH
GARLIC AND/OR SPRING ONIONS
FEATURING! ANY VEGGIES YOU DESIRE
PLUS! IF YOU’RE A PROUD CARNIVORE, YOU CAN ADD MEAT TOO - JUST MAKE SURE IT’S COOKED THROUGH BEFOREHAND! WE DON’T WANT TO BE REANIMATING YOU, TOO! WE GOT NO TIME FOR THAT!
BONUS! IF YOU’RE FEELING FANCY AND LOVE THE EAST ASIAN FLAVOUR LIKE ME, YOU CAN SERVE IT WITH SOY SAUCE, NORI SPRINKLE, OR TOASTED SESAME SEEDS - OR ANYTHING ELSE YOU FIND IN YOUR MAGICAL HAGRID-LIKE POCKETS. イタダキマーース！
FIRST YOU WILL NEED THE CORPSE OF ONE SUCCESSFUL COCONUT RICE SUMMONING. DO IT YOURSELF! THE EXP IS WORTH IT! USE LEFTOVERS OR MAKE A FRESH BATCH AND LEAVE IT TO COOL IN A SAFE PLACE WITH THE LID OFF. LET THAT STEAM GET OUT OR IT’LL CONDENSE AND TURN TO SLIME IN THE BOTTOM -THAT’S NOXIOUS STUFF! WE WANT COLD, DRY REMAINS.
NOW BEANS. ANY KIND. IF THEY’RE IN A TIN THEN GOOD FOR YOU. IF THEY’RE DRY, YOU NEED THE +4 ADDITIONAL SKILL OF FORWARD-PLANNING TO SOAK ‘EM FOR A WHOLE EARTH ROTATION BEFOREHAND. I LIKE AZUKI OR MUNG BEANS COS I WAS BROUGHT UP ON THAT SIDE OF TOWN. TRY BLACK-EYE BEANS! KIDNEY BEANS! MAGIC BEANS! (whispers: butterbeans are rightly named and turn to a glorious beany butter if they cook too long, so save them for a pie or casserole or have them with curry instead. Okay, the voic-)
COOK THEM! HOW? SLAM ‘EM IN A POT WITH WATER AND COOK ‘EM TILL THEY’RE DONE! STRAIN ‘EM. WATER’S NO GOOD FOR THIS SPELL!
TIME TO PREP YOUR MEAT AND VEG, BOYS!
CHOP THE FUCK OUT OF THEM!
KNOW YOUR ONIONS? NO? WELL BETTER BONE UP FAST BRO! AND NEVER LET YOUR PETS CONSUME THEM! PETS DON’T RESURRECT!
CHOP UP YOUR GARLIC AND/OR SPRING ONIONS AND SLAM IT IN THE FRYING PAN. LET IT HEAT UP NICE AND GENTLE. COAX THE FLAVOUR OUT OF IT LIKE A NERVOUS KITTEN IN ITS FIRST SNOWFALL. NUDGE IT WITH AN IMPLEMENT.
VEG GOES IN NOW! EVERYTHING ELSE IS ALREADY PAR-COOKED SO GIVE THE PLANT LIFE A HEAD START! IT’S NOT LIKE IT HAD LEGS TO START WITH! MOVE IT AROUND WITH THE MIGHTY POWER OF YOUR MIND! MAKE SURE IT’S COOKED THROUGH BECAUSE THE REST IS COMING UP PRETTY QUICKLY NOW!
WHERE ARE THOSE EGGS, YOU SAY? WHERE INDEED? STARTLE ONE OUT OF THAT HEN THAT PECKED YOU ON YOUR BIRTHDAY AND TAKE YOUR REVENGE BY SCRAMBLING ITS UNBORN CHILD IN THE SAUCEPAN. YOU DO KNOW HOW TO SCRAMBLE, RIGHT? YOU’LL NEED ONE STARTLED EGG FOR EVERY GAPING MAW YOU PLAN TO FEED.
COOK IT ‘TIL IT’S DRY AND FLAKY - I KNOW I’M DOING IT WRONG! GO WITH ME HERE ALRIGHT? EVEN CURDLED MILK HAS A USE! (cough cough my neighbour makes mind-blowing cheese scones with it).
PUT YOUR SCRAMBLED EGG ASIDE BUT KEEP IT HANDY! YOU’LL NEED IT SOON ENOUGH. RETURN TO YOUR CAULDRON AND CHECK YOUR VEGGIES ARE DONE.
NOW IT’S BEANS IN! RICE IN! GO GO GO!
BREAK UP THE RICE AS IT CLINGS TOGETHER FOR COMFORT. SMASH ITS STARCHY RESOLVE! THERE’S ENOUGH OIL ON THE RICE FROM THE COCONUT MILK SO YOU WON’T NEED TO ADD MUCH TO GET IT FRYING! KEEP STIRRING TIL IT STARTS TO GO WEAK AT THE KNEES. IT’LL SOFTEN AND TAKE ON THE
COLOUR BLOOD OF ITS FALLEN COMRADES. NOW WE CAN PUT IN THE PRE-COOKED MEAT.
ONCE THE WHOLE THING IS STEAMING NICELY AND YOU CAN FEEL THE POWERFUL HEAT OF RESURRECTION RISING FROM IT, IT’S TIME TO ADD THE SCRAMBLED EGG - AND DON’T BE STINGY! GET THAT EGG MIXED THROUGH SO EVERYONE GETS A SHARE.
SERVE IT UP WITH YOUR FAVOURITE CONDIMENTS AND YOU’RE DONE.
That I volunteered to cook in the first place was a wonder. That my family turned round and asked me to cook it again, for guests, and the guests asked for the recipe, is unheard of! I reckon that’s as good a promise of deliciousness as I can possibly provide. I based this on a memory of the Japanese fried rice dish chahan which I lived off as a student while studying abroad.
And guess what? I thought FR was a joke at first but I learned and re-learned so much. Coconut rice is indeed the best rice. Rice plus beans is a whole protein. Eggs are full of protein and the trace elements you need to keep your pecker up. Fresh veg and good meat (another source of protein!) are good for your energy and general health. That’s protein and plant sugars and starches: growth, repair, and expendable energy, guys.
Plus, coconut oil is reputedly great for improving memory function. This meal isn’t just delicious and eminently customisable, it might just turn your life around. It damn near saved mine. If you’re a lowly student and the only luxury you can afford is a half-dozen eggs once a fortnight, use them for this and make it once every few days. The unfried cold rice keeps well in the fridge, if you keep it dry. Everything but the eggs comes dirt cheap if you buy it dry and in bulk and think ahead. It’ll cut your shopping bill in half and help boost your health and daily function. I promise it. I guarantee it. I lived on it. Thank-you, FR, you saved my life!
COME INTO MY ARMS YOU BEAUTIFUL BEING I WISH TO EMBRACE YOU
