Fortunately I made a double batch of the recipe and the leftovers have been a welcomed meal on Friday night, too, particularly since Chase had a soccer recreation that night time and we have been looking out for one thing fast and straightforward.

The bottom of Friday’s nights (leftover) dinner was Daily Harvest‘s new Curried Brown Rice + Inexperienced Chickpea Grains and I you higher imagine I’ll be ordering this taste from their grains choice sooner or later.
