Taking full advantage of this wonderful, miraculous 'I'll try everything' phase Alex is going through, we've been trotting out as many of our favorite dishes as we can. For a kid who wouldn't eat rice (beyond sushi) two years ago, he's been happily consuming fried rice, Indian, and even jambalaya.
A 'fast' recipe from Food & Wine, it's fairly basic. Meats are browned (chicken & Andouille for Matt, Veat & Boca 'sausages' for the two of us), onions cooked to that gloriously soft and tender stage where they almost dissolve before your eyes, a few spices, corn and Arborio. Vegetable broth, simmer till rice is tender.
I wasn't sure what he'd think of it. I made 'our' version much blander than called for; like me, Alex's spice tolerance is pretty low.
He ate with gusto. He gave dual thumbs up. And we can add one more dish to the Alex-friendly arsenal.
