Mixed Vegetable Pilau

Surreyfarms. A serene haven in the foothills of Northern California

This is a quick and easy rice dish that is packed with vegetables and is one of those recipes I turn to again and again when I am in a pinch and need to make dinner fast. My Mom used to make this vegetable pilaf (called pilau in Hindi) with frozen mixed vegetables when she was late coming home from work and needed to whip something up fast, delicious, and filling – a one pot meal of sorts. I’ve pretty much been making my pilau the exact same way Mom taught me years ago. Why mess with a good thing? Especially if that recipe is quick, healthy, easy and delicious. All the pilau needs is a side of simple yogurt raita to make a complete meal.

Cucumber and Green Onion Raita

Ralta is a salad or side dish. (I looked that up, because I haven’t really understood all things about Indian food and I wasn’t sure if this wasn’t something that needed something else to eat it and apparently not!)

With so many garden fresh cucumbers delivered by my neighbor, I had already made cucumber salad and cucumber sandwiches and still had loads of cucumbers left over. I was wondering what else I could make when this cucumber and green onion raita seemed like a perfect summer dish. Served as a side dish along with fried rice or served as a dip, this is a great way to use op cool summer cucumbers.

Full Text of The Poetical Works of Matthew Arnold (Gutenberg Link)

I am doing some work on Norse Mythology lately and in one of the texts I was reviewing (for myself), I found, Baldur’s Gate by Matthew Arnold, which is a poem in this book. It is a heroic poem retelling the the death of the War God, Baldur in the Poetic Edda of Snorri Sturlson. And when I went to look at the entire text of the poem, I found this entire text of his works and I felt that it was something really good to share, because, as I just said on my Facebook page where I posted this link first, it should be a work to lend some comfort to anyone who likes to read and ponder poetry.
