Lime, Garlic and Cilantro Rice

Standard

If you like lime then you will really like this rice dish. I got this rice dish from the Pioneer Woman.

For the ingredients;

Rice

Oil or Butter

Garlic

3 Limes

Chicken Broth

Cilantro

 

Now I always use butter this is the first time I used oil. And it worked just fine. So I put some oil in the skillet with some minced garlic. You can also put in an onion at this point.

 

 

Then I stirred in 3 cups of rice and let it got lite golden brown.

 

 

Pour in 6 cups of chicken broth. The zest and juice of 2 limes. Sorry I did not have pictures of the limes.

 

 

Bring it to a boil. Then put a lid on it turn it to low and let it simmer for 20 min.

 

 

While the rice is cooking I chop the cilantro.

 

 

After it’s done I juice 1 more lime and put it in with the cilantro mix it all together and it taste delish.

We had this with Enchiladas I will be blogging that one next.

Have a great weekend!

Spanish Rice

Standard

My friend Danielle gave me a recipe she got from her Mom. I did a little change to it. But then I might change it because I do not have everything it calls for 🙂 Or I add more things to it so this is Danielle’s Mom’s and Mine put together!

1/2 stick of butter

1 1/2 cups of rice

Garlic

3 cups of water now you can add chicken broth powder or use already made chicken broth.

1 small can of tomato sauce

1 Small can of green chiles

2 green onions

1/2 bunch of cilantro

Here is goes!

So first I start out melting the butter then I stir in the rice and garlic. Fry it til it is light brown. Then I add the water and chicken broth powder a tbsp for each cup of water. Also at this point I put in the tomato sauce and the can of green chilies. After it comes to a boil.

I turn it to Med heat cover it and set the timer for 20 min. Then I cut up the green onions and the cilantro to add when it is done.

Here it is with everything added. But I do have to e tell you I did not use the tomato sauce because I did not have any or I would have used it. But it tasted great without it too. Oh yes and because of the chicken broth I do not add salt well I do add salt to my plate. I get in trouble when I add salt to the dish. It will taste great to me but to salty for everyone else.

I hope you liked my blog and will try the recipe. Have a great day!

Mason Jars

Standard

I was checking out the Pioneer Woman’s ( Ree Drummond ) Website. And she had a blog about Mason jars. She was saying you can put left overs in them, Drink out of them, Save your Bacon grease in them, you can also make a soap dispenser out of them. Now that I’m going to do. I will show it when its done 🙂

Now this bag just takes up to much space in my cupboard. I was so excited to get me some Mason Jars to put things like this in them. Look how the jar would take up less space. Plus you can stack them on top of each other.

Yes I like it so much better! I have some canisters that are not that big. So when I put like sugar and flour in them it might not fit all of the sugar and flour so I put the rest in a mason jar. I also have like coffee, sunflower seeds, sometimes I put pasta in them.

Here are my Canisters. Tony and I went to an estate sale with our awesome friends the Woodrums. And Belen bought the four big ones in the back for me. Then one day I was at Ross and found the 2 little ones on sale so I bought them 🙂

Here is some more mason jars filled with my goodies 🙂 I always get a big bag of rice and I would keep it in a cupboard in the garage. Then one day when I was at Wal-Mart checking out the Mason Jars I saw it. That huge glass canister I loved it. My rice fit in it and the rest in 1 Large mason jar. And I think it looks so beautiful out there!

Thank you so much

Hope you enjoy
