On Monday, I made a deeeeeeelish dinner - Coconut chicken and Thai rice with zuccini. The coconut chicken is courtesy of this recipe:
The rice was made with a Thai flavored broth -
I made brown rice on the stove replacing water with this broth. It came out SO good. I cannot wait to try the other flavors that Swanson has out - a hot and sour and a Mexican tortilla. This seems healthier than buying flavored rices (albeit these have a lot of sodium).
I made double so we had this for lunch the next day. So good!! My take on cooking is really to find a recipe that looks good and then edit due to what you have on hand or what you do/don't like. Removing the cereal from the recipe didn't really do much. It would've made it crunchier but I'm not going to buy a box of Fiber One for $5 just to make this. So, meal planning and cooking is actually fun right now because aren't stressing over having the perfect spice for every dish, it's fun to try new recipes, and it's nice having lunch the next day!
