Basmati Rice Take 2 and Dad

Happy Monday Foodies and Mommies!

This weekend was pretty much a very busy but uneventful one. We headed back to IKEA on Saturday to return some broken pieces of our new wardrobe. Then yesterday, I headed to my Father’s house to spend the day with him. Though he is feeling a little weaker than usual, he is in good spirits and that makes a world of a difference. He is scheduled to start dialysis at the local Davita center today. This is definitely a new journey for our family, but I am confident that all will go well and he will adjust.
We shared lunch and spent some time chatting away. Then, the hubster and munchkin came to pick me up. We made a quick stop to the local Key Food for a few quick ingredients and drove home. I decided to make my Aromatic Basmati Rice again. My hubster lovesssssssssss this rice and so I try to bring a smile to his face once in a while. The secret to this rice are the aromatics. From the moment they start to steep in the oil, the entire house instantly begins to smell fabulous.
Bay Leaves, Cinnamon, Fennel Seeds, Rosemary, Basil and Cloves. This combination is a must when cooking Basmati rice in my home. It turns out so light and fluffy. Perfect!
I highly recommend you try this. You will thank me. I’m serious, you will!

Today promises to be a beautiful day. Hopefully, I will be able to fit in a photo tour. Maybe I’ll even go to DUMBO and work on my sermonette for this week’s Good Friday service. I have an idea what I will be speaking on. Now all I need to do is finish putting it together.

By the way, I just love how my Pastor always entraps me…lol! I kid. I kid.

Well, I am going to sign off and get ready for my day job. Remember to smile today. You’re alive and in your right mind…at least I hope you are. That alone is enough to keep you smiling all day long. Kiss the munchkins, love on your loved ones and conquer the day.

Be blessed!

xoxo,
Rachel
