Making Do!

Hi everone, I think that it's fun to throw something together with what you have on hand. One time while camping I made tuna patties and fried them in a little oil. LOL The guys were supposed to catch fish but you know how that goes!

Please check out my group "Share Our Strength Cookbook Project"

I Started a new group called: Share Our Strength CookBook Project.

Share Our Strength is a Non Profit organization that is dedicated to feeding hungry children all over the world. They work with many big name chefs to provide food for underprivileged children and It is endorsed by FoodNetwork who also sponsors Community Bakesales all over the country as fundraisers. (Sandra Lee from (Semi- Homemade) is one of their National spokespersons)

I Thought perhaps if we could generate enough interest, People might like to contribute some of their favorite rice dishes to make a cookbook and 100% of any sales would be donated to Share Our Strength.org.

The recipe's can be anything at all... dessert,breakfast, soups, main dishes, side dishes, risottos, cassaroles, drinks.... vegan, vegetarian, ethnic, with or without any kind of protein.... They can use Rice noodles, Rice flour, Rice wines and vinegars, As long as it's Tried and True, the submission is welcome and you will get credit for any an all recipes you may submit. ( you can even include a little blurb about your recipe if you like )

I Really hope you will join in with me to help get this project off the ground. It means a lot to me. Thankyou

Just came up with this for dinner tonight...

Once again my bills have outweighed my finances so i am running out of everything - but still... we have to eat.

I had on hand, rice, ground beef, canned greenbeans, frozen peas, 2 carrots, 1 onion, some garlic, leftover flour based seasoning mix for my ovenfried chicken from earlier this week... and leftover glaze that I made for a meatloaf I made last week and also used on my ovenfried chicken (actually it's a really good all purpose sauce... I need to make it again and try it with pork sometime)

Sooooo.... I minced the onion, carrots, and garlic - then sauteed them in a skillet with a little salt and olive oil... added the ground beef and cooked it till it was no longer pink (sprinkled a little paprika and italian seasoning on it as it was browning) and while that was cooking I went ahead and made my rice in the microwave.
When the rice was done I thawed out my peas, drained my can of green beans, and diluted the last bit of sauce with water (about half and half) and sprinkled the flour/seasoning mixture over the beef (a little more than 1/4 cup I think)
Added the rest of the ingredients, mixing well and when the sauce tightened back up I tasted it, added a tiny bit of salt, and served it.

The colors of the peas and carrots brightened up the dish, the flavors all melted in together and the rice made it filling - And omg was it ever good! Who needs Hamburger helper?
