Yep! Robert Cooks Too!
And he also has a flair for the unusual and non-traditional. He decided to make dinner tonight which I was very appreciate of because I was busy writing a term paper. (That's what I get for procrastinating.) Well Robert made something pretty traditional -- it's something of a staple in our house, Basil Chicken. But he decided to spice things up a little bit and try something very different. When dinner was served, I noticed that the rice was yellow, had craisins in it, and smelled like cinnamon! Yep, his version of saffron rice with currants. (Yes it's strange but we did just happen to have saffron in our cupboard.) It like a kid friendly, easy, and very aromatic version. I loved it! And so did the kids! The cinnamon was very subtle, but definately added something to it. So while the basil chicken was good, the saffron rice definately took center stage. And it is nice to be able to eat some good cooking. . . not cooked by me. :-)
