Not sure about anybody else out there, but preparing supper just before grocery shopping can be a pain. This is usually some days before payday where fresh supplies in the pantry have either run out or almost wilted.
One could easily grab some pizza or fried chicken on the way home, yes. But I prefer to still cook supper for the family.
I love Basmati rice and it’s one of the things I never run out of (most of the time). I love how it works so well with many dishes and adds a bit of pizzazz to any dish with its fragrance as well as light texture.
I used beef patties [home-made], yellow peppers, red onion, very little carrot and sun dried tomatoes. And I had some Boerewors in the freezer, so it also came to the party.
I seriously believe that had I put the ingredients together and threw in a bowl not many would want to eat it despite the aroma from all the spices inviting you.
I had initially planned to make meatballs, but am glad I didn’t.
I’m comfortable making and learning from my own mistakes in my kitchen. It’s a great way to learn.
