My friend EDelMar bought a huge bag of rice and wants a seasoning mix to stir into the rice while it's cooking. I checked around and couldn't find anything suitable, so I'm trying to whip up something for him. I'm starting with minced dried onion, chicken boullion granuales and minced dried veggies, which includes carrots, parsley, celery, peppers, tomatoes, and garlic. What else should I put in it?

Wow, that is some recipe, friend Paul. I am dying to make it, just as soon as I find a source for goat meat!

Well, Thanksgiving is next  week, and I'm not  sure what to make for a side dish.

I know mom will say we don't need it, but I'll try to make one to bring anyway.

Is it called Asparagus Rarebit because the asparagus is rare in it?

Asparagus Rarebit a la Molly Katzen/Moosewood

2 tbs butter or margarine
2 tbs flour
1 tsp dry mustard
1.5 cups beer or ale at room temperature (OK if flat)
1 cup packed grated cheddar (0.5 lb)
1 tsp prepared horseradish
1 medium clove garlic, minced
salt, black pepper, & cayenne to taste

1) Melt the butter in a medium-sized saucepan.  Sprinkle in the flour & dry mustard, whisking constantly.
2) Add the beer or ale and keep whisking as you bring it to a boil.  Lower the heat annd simmer for about 10 minutes, mixing frequently.
3) Add the remaining ingredients, and stir until the cheese melts.
4) Serve hot oveer steamed vegetables and/or cooked potatoes.
5) Garnish with chunks of ripe tomatoes, tart apples, and/or toasted walnuts.

I bet apples and walnuts would make it Thanksgiving-like.--Lynne

I need to be at mom and dads in two hours, and the side dish is in the oven.


I decided to do something "non-Thanksgiving", but tasty.   I made "beef pockets"


Brown one pound of ground beef in a skillet,  season with a mix of salt, pepper, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, and (if you like heat) ground red pepper.

Take one can of Pillsbury crescent  rolls, and unroll.  They are in pre-cut rectangles, then cut into triangles.  Ignore that.  LOL   cut the rectangles out, and then cut them in  half into squares.

Place some beef on each square, fold in half and close the edges, bake  in oven for 15 minutes at 300.

:)

I don't know what Pillsbury crescent rolls are, but I'm guessing some sort of pastry.

Which means your dish is basically pirogi, more or less.

I'm sure it's good!

They come in a tube and look like this.





You unroll the dough, and take the pre-cut triangles and roll them up again.  When they're done baking, they look like this.






What I did was ignore the triangle cuts,  and shaped the dough into squares.   I placed the seasoned meat onto them, and then folded them over and pinched the ends shut.   When they were done,  they looked like this.

Yes, that's pretty much how I imagined it.

It's like pirogi, more or less.

How were they?
