I love trying new recipes…and love getting recipes you would like to share!

QuotecupQUOTE OF THE WEEK

" The key to success is simple. Make people dream." ~ Gerard de Nerval

Bday-buddies Last week we celebrated the 1st and 6th birthdays of two of our grandchildren… these beautiful birthday buddies share the same birthday!

RECIPE OF THE WEEK

This week's recipe is pretty boring, but since this is becoming the repository for my favorite recipes I have to include this Mexican rice recipe based on a recipe from allrecipes.com… a delicious staple to add to any Mexican menu. Serves 8.

MEXICAN RICE

  • Mexican-rice 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups uncooked long-grain rice
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (or 2 tablespoons instant minced onion)
  • 1 cup tomato sauce (8 ounce can)
  • 4 cups chicken broth

Heat oil in a large wok-style frypan over medium heat and add rice. Sprinkle with garlic salt and cumin. Cook, stirring constantly, until puffed and golden.

Stir in onions and cook until tender. If using instant onion, add with tomato sauce and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.
