Day 66 – I have been reading that we have gone from panic buying as in people buying tons of toilet paper, paper towels, and whatever they could grab to hoarding. They are looking for the items that they are afraid will run out and they want to make sure they have enough if this goes on indefinitely. Items that are harder to find here or MUCH more expensive than normal? Meat, canned foods, frozen dinners, and frozen pizzas are often out or are very limited choices. Fear of prices rising too are driving the hoarding. People are thinking what if there isn’t enough? What if the prices go up and I cannot buy it later?
Where this dish comes from is rice can sometimes be hard to find. We found a bag of Basmati rice at the grocery store and picked it up. Basmati rice is softer than white rice in texture and has a similar flavor to jasmine rice. I wanted something simple for dinner and this is super simple.
Verdict: This is a super simple dish with simple ingredients. Add lots of black pepper for flavor. My kids added a dash of soy sauce to theirs. Doctor it up as you see fit for your family.
I served this with green beans and a simple side salad to complete the meal.
