OK, take a break for seafood, too much cholesterol.
I don't have much time to spend on cooking on week days, hence, I will cook a pot of dish that can be frozen for a few meals. That will save me a lot of time to prepare the dinner when I get back from work.
This is one of the dishes that is available in my freezer. It is very appetizing when you mix the gravy with the rice. For those busy working mom, may be you can try it?
