Well the elders are comming for dinner on Friday. The lady that schedules their dinners is down sick and I didn't want to have her worrying about them not getting a meal. We are having Beef Frajitas, Refried Beans, and Spanish Rice and Rice Pudding for dessert I think. I just bought 20 lbs of rice for 5.00 so now I need to use some of it so it is transportable. I shouldn't have done it but it just seemed like such a good price that I couldn't resist lol. Sometimes I am not the brightest bulb in the box.

So that's how I ended up with 20 lbs of rice? Thankyou Weezie. I'm going to have to look into that tomato rice pudding. I don't think I've ever seen a recipe for that before. And I'm glad that you reminded me about rice soups. I usually use noodles so I hadn't considered that. Now I'm definitely thinking along the cream of chicken with rice soup line. Hum I'm drooling already. This room/topic should come with bibs for members like me lol.

For the Tomato Rice soup,
just fill the pot up with half water..
*I never measure* and then like if I'm
going to do 3 people for soup, I put in 4
boullion cubes, *but obviously you can adapt
to your own individual needs/diet requirements..
but then put in 1/4 cup per serving.. and one for the pot.. and then boil that for at least 15/20 minutes.. and then pour in one can of HUNTS TOMATO SAUCE and finish cooking.. *about another 10, 15 minutes or until rice splitz..
*I like softer rice*
I finish it off with some fine ground black pepper...

that sounds wonderful. I've got chicken thawing for some cream of chicken soup with rice. And then maybe some chicken frijatas I can't spell worth a darn. But I've been of a mexican food kick for about 2 weeks now. And since I still have taco mix I might as well. I'll have to go to the store for more fixings on thursday anyway. Thanks for the wonderful recipe Weezie.

If it's too salty for you...
Just add more water..
(or get some no salt tomato sauce)

My mom doesn't like it so salty/thick..
so she thins it out a bit....
(Or if she's cooked potatoes that day,
or the next, she adds that water)

I don't use the cubes I use the granulated. That way I can put in exactly the amount I want. And I think it is cheaper than the cubes. But I could be wrong on that one.

by weezie13 on October 12, 2006 08:14 PM
I buy both...
Sometimes I don't want a whole cube..
Some meals, especially larger sizes,
I might use more..

by weezie13 on October 12, 2006 10:18 PM
Ummmmmmm,
I never cut up an onion, until I am ready to use it.. but I have cut half the onion and store in
the fridge to keep..

But I like it cut fresh as to not loose those juices from them..

But my father~in~law has been storing celery in tinfoil in the fridge and he's been able to keep it fresh for weeeeeeeeks now..

So, try it with it covered in foil and see how it works..

I bet the flavors would really be married inside together... more enhanced I'd bet...

Tammy, You can cut up the meat as well and mix them all together with any seasonings you may be using. It can all marinate together overnight if you are going to cook it all together tomorrow.

We are all under the same stars... therefore we are never far apart.
by weezie13 on October 13, 2006 01:49 AM
Actually what Triss suggested would be
a good idea..
And they would be all nice and marinated up
when you do them tomorrow...
What a great idea! [grin] [thumb] [clappy] [thinker]

Wish I had read this yesterday. Oh well. I'll keep it separate because I don't know the elders eating preferences. This way they can add what they want on leave what they don't. But the next time I cook them for myself I'm definitely going to try doing it that way. It does sound good.

Any of that Chivetta's Marinade???

Or I used to do Chicken Breasts with
Mayo, Mustard (and sometimes w/italian dressing too, just to spice it up a bit) and rolled onto [dunno] crunched up croutons and bake it...

Does anyone use apple cider vinegar in cooking?
I like some in spinach, chili, and spaghetti sauce. Really wakes up but somehow mellows even canned chili.
Just wondering if there are other uses for it in foods.
I LOVE white vinegar cucumbers, what's that called? You know, the ones with the fork marks down the sides of the cucumber?
