you know how ideas can get out of hand? well, here is another one of those.
i realised i had too much korma sauce for just 1 person, and too much chicken, so i asked if anyone wanted any. at first there was only one other.
then 2 others heard and were up for it, and one of them had more chicken and the other: more sauce. by this stage we still hadn't realised how much stuff we had, and went to cooking. By the time all the chicken is diced, we think "OMG!" and hope some others take an interest!
by now we have 6 takers, and we think we'll be OK, and therefore use 6 cups of rice and 12 cups of water to hope all will be OK.
by the time its all cooked, we realise there is enough chicken korma for 7 or 8 people, and enough rice for 10 or 11 people!
luckily, sam walks in from his late lecture, and needs to go out in about 15 mins, so he takes away the last korma portion, and roopal uses the rest of the rice for her and zoe's dinner.
in the end all went well. my idea was well received, but way too much was initially cooked. at least it all got used, but we need better planning next time.
