We had guests for dinner over the weekend. My carefully planned menu turned out rather well.
There was one rice dish, which had a number of seeds – mustard, cumin, cardamom, peppercorn and star anise, in addition to various vegetables.
There were enough leftovers to last us till lunch the next day.
After eating the leftovers the next day, my son asked me why I hadn’t cooked anything new. I promised him that I would cook something that he liked for dinner, as I did not want to waste food.
He readily agreed and ran away to play. When he came home he sniffed the air appreciatively, and asked me what was for dinner.
When I told him, he let out a whoop of joy, and then said, “I was so scared that I would have to eat that ‘seedy’ rice again!!!
I laughed and told him the meaning of ‘seedy’!
