UPDATE: The crew hasn’t left yet–so the reading will start at 12:45 EST
Bobbi Romans Reads, will be delayed a bit this morning. Part of my massive clan are heading out for a mini-vacay and the house has become chaotic. Wee ones running amok “is it time?” and mom packing, loading and knowing she’s forgotten something.
To play it safe, lets say NOON! Chapter Three of An American Holiday will commence NOON-ish today. (EST-04/07/17)
HERE: Bobbi Romans Reads Ch 3
As in previous notes, to watch/listen to chapters ONE and TWO, simply go here: Then Click MORE, then select VIIDEOS. I’ve titled them #BobbiRomansReads Ch1 and so forth.
So, any good cook will admit to erring in “winging” some new creation. I had mine. It was HORRID. I tried to do a surprise “fancy” breakfast… yeah, no. For dinner, I revereted to a tried and true favorite.
Broccoli, Rice and Cheese Casserole, but DINNER style.
What’s dinner style? I add meat. I’ve also converted from my mothers, Cheese Whiz ingredient. Normal size family? Stick with the Cheese Whiz, massive crew like mine who has to make TWO pots, use Velvetta.
Basic breakdown, I brown hamburger meat with diced onions and drain. Return to pot add a family size bag of frozen chopped broccoli and a stick of butter. Over medium heat while stirring often, cook until broccoli is tender. Add one family sized can of cream of mushroom or chicken stir well, add instant rice (I actually use par-broiled but have to add more water and watch really carefully) water and cubed Velvetta and a dash or two of salt or garlic salt.
No, I didn’t give quantities because with this one, just wing it depending on your family size. I can give a typical amount, such as 3-5 pounds of ground beef, depending on how meaty you like it, rice 2 cups, water accordingly, extra butter if making a super large batch, etc.
UPDATE: Remember this?
Never heard of this thing much less seen or eaten, and BAM! My aunt shows me a menu from a new restaurant she was raving about and LO and BEHOLD, there it is. Tamarind and date dipping sauce to the Samosas Dish!
