(Almost) Anime Food Re-creation: K-On!!-inspired Fried Rice

Hey everyone! It's been awhile since I posted an Anime Food Re-creation so I thought I'd make another. On today's menu is fried rice inspired by the anime K-On!!
K-On!! - Yui's okayu (rice porridge) for Ui
I must confess... this is technically not an exact anime food re-creation. D: In the anime, Yui makes okayu (rice porridge) for her sick sister. Okayu is like the chicken soup of Asia. It's really easy to digest so it's commonly made for sick individuals. In China, rice porridge is also a popular breakfast food that you can customize with different mix-ins. (My personal favorite includes pork, bean curd, and "thousand-year-old egg.") BUT! Since I wasn't sick and wanted something more substantial for my lunch, I opted to make fried rice instead. I hope you guys understand. :)
Real Life Anime Food: K-On!!-inspired Fried Rice
For the fried rice, I used leftover white rice (it has to be leftover because fresh rice is too sticky for fried rice), Japanese sausage, green onion, cilantro, garlic, and a sunny-side up egg. This might not have been exactly what Yui's sister ate, but the ingredients are essentially the same (minus the large pot of water needed for the porridge). It definitely made for a yummy, filling lunch! I hope you guys enjoyed this *almost* anime food re-creation.

Until the next adventure!
