With the new job, I’ve been slacking on my cooking. Last Saturday I stopped being lazy about it and made a new recipe! I picked up some basmati rice and cooked it with onions, then topped it with a vegetable stir-fry and some teriyaki chicken. It didn’t work as well as I would have liked, unfortunately. It was still decent, but there were some things I need to keep in mind if I do this particular dish again.

  • The rice needs another minute or two to cook through and soften up.
  • Less onion, it overpowered the rice.
  • Mushrooms let out a ton of water while stir-frying. I shouldn’t have to drain a stir-fry.
  • More chicken.

No pictures from last week, but I’m definitely making sure to post pictures from this week. Shrimp jambalaya!
