Good morning all!
Well played Baldo.
Wow JFri, the Winterhawks get to play the worst NHL team in the championship?
From: “Miss Fluffy’s Rice Cook Book”Published By: Rice Council for Market Development (early to mid 60’s?)(It’s actually more of a pamphlet than book and there is no further publishing data listed.)Received: Compliments of DELTA RICE“Spanish Rice Au Gratin” (This has been a family favourite for years. I recommend it.) This is the complete recipe as it appears in the book.1/2 cup uncooked rice1 cup water1/2 cup chopped onions1/3 cup chopped green peppers1/2 cup chopped celery1 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine1 cup tomatoes (stewed or canned) 1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon monosodium glutamate 1 teaspoon sugar1 teaspoon chili powder1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce1 cup grated cheddar cheeseCombine rice, water, and salt. Bring to boil. Stir; cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 14 minutes.Meanwhile, cook onions, green pepper, and celery in butter. Add tomatoes, salt, monosodium glutamate, sugar, chili powder, and Worcestershire sauce.Add cooked rice and simmer until thick. Pour into a buttered casserole and top with cheese. Place under broiler and melt. Serves 6.Notes from me:The monosodium glutamate is strictly optional. My mother always distrusted it, and so we never had it.The dish is tasty enough without it.Use the mildest chili powder you can find, or you’ll destroy the subtle flavours because your tongue is burned.(or cut it down to 1/2 teaspoon)From experience: 1) Cook the rice at a simmer for 20 minutes in at least 3 cups of water. Drain the excess water off before adding the rice to the other ingredients. 2) Cook the onions, celery, and green pepper until soft so their flavours spread throughout the dish when they’re mixed with the rice.
Welcome back Marg! Hola johnny, Akenta, JFri and Alex. (Hope you don’t mind me shortening your name.)
The rice recipe sounds good.
Going to be beautiful weather here for the next several days here, Marg!
Johnny, that should have been the Edmonton OIL KINGS of the WHL. Good catch, though!
Hola Loco Mojos!
Welcome back Marg!
When did the Oilers become the Oil Kings JFri? Be gentile. I have no idea about anything sports related.
Hi Dry and adopted son of hers, Johnny!I had a wonderful walk in a conservation park in the heart of the city. We saw 25 different species of birds and lots of wild flowers.
Hi Akenta There sure is a lot of Labour Days going around.
Not to upset anyone, but I’m going to bed now.
Shika, the Oil Kings are Western Hockey League while the Oilers are a National Hockey League team.
Thanks Jfri. See, we occasionally connect. But then, I’m late for bed tonight. Have a good day tomorrow! Good Night…
Hope you feel better soon. Just read last night’s post.
