Made 'get crazy using up stuff in the freezer' pilaf tonight.
From the freezer: Chicken broth I made a while back, the last of a bag of frozen mixed veggies, and 2 chicken thighs.
From the spice shelf: Smoke seasoning, smoked paprika, dried chilis, and more. (Maybe a little too much of the smoke and the chilis and more?)
Everything into the rice cooker, along with two cups of long-grain white rice and a little extra water.
Result: Yum! (Maybe a bit spicy? Except I LIKE spicy.)
From this one quick and easy foray into seat-of-the-pants cooking I am getting three meals.
The first was tonight, a chicken thigh and some lovely, spicy, pilaf.
The second was another serving of the above, packed to freeze and eat later.
The third is some left-over spicy, smokey pilaf I am going to mix with ketchup and make into a weird American take on omurice tomorrow.
I talked about omurice here a while back, but apparently I didn't tag it with 'food', so I can't find it.
Update: I tried looking under the 'Japan' tag and still didn't find my omurice thread. But I did find this crazy story about alternate dimensional yakiniku: https://rustedneuron.com/web/statuses/105687621533845327
