Great Idea!

I came across this website on a friend's Facebook page.  It is one of those "Why didn't someone think of that sooner?" type sites. 

Take Them A Meal, lets you create a meal schedule for someone in need.  This might be due to illness, a new baby, or some difficult times in their lives.  People can search and sign up for a meal slot so meals are organized.  I would love to use this next time someone I know needs it and will be suggesting it to friends.

Indian Veggie Rice

Recipe from Weelicious.

I basically increased the Weelicious recipe by using 2 potatoes, 2 carrots 1 large onion 2 garlic, 1.5 C of rice, 2.5 tsp of Curry 2 tsp salt and 1 C. peas.

I also added a pinch of ginger.

I wanted to use it as a meatless meal not  just a side dish and while her suggestion that her recipe serves 4 is probably accurate for a side dish, I doubt it would feed my husband's appetite. 

Mainly I thought that all of the ingredients are super kid friendly (and easy for my 1 year old to feed himself) so I was all for trying it.  My 3 year old liked it a lot.  My 1 year old liked it but it was messy with the yellow curry coloring.  I think next time it would be better with some chicken breast mixed in and maybe a little cinnamon.  Overall though it was filling and tasted good. :)  It did take about 1 hour to cook all the way with the brown rice (not basmati brown as Weelicious suggests)  but I started it early and just stirred it every 20 minutes so it wasn't very time consuming.
