  1. I tried the Egyptian Rice, but used turkey and some curry and garam masala to make it Indian. I also put more rice and broth. Everyone liked it.

    1. That sounds interesting. I don't even know what garam masala is.

  2. I didn't know if anyone used the menus, but since I've taken the time to put them together for me I thought I would post them. Thankful some of you have found them useful.
