Didn't like that picture.. here, this is better

Looks good. I'd eat it all except the eggplant, but that's just personal preference.
>>
>>7369908
well that looks pretty unappetizing.
>>
>>7369958
it's dirty rice, it's not really ever going to be pretty.

>>7369942
eggplant is pretty tasty from the tomato and garlic rubbed into it. But if you dislike it the rice is plenty filling to make a meal.
>>
>>7369983
I've never enjoyed them and I've given them plenty of chances a lot of different ways.

I'd eat the rice for lunch every day, love me some liver.
>>
>>7370006
The rice has been my lunch for half the week. Re-heats really well I must say.

Bump for OC.

I still have half a package in my fridge, but teleportation, sadly, still isn't a thing.

Op, next time use a food pic and use meme talk.
You'll get more replies.

>>7373726
Or I could mention building block spices in a cheap recipe. That got someone's panties in a bunch last week.
