IF he does not act right, he goes. Well Uncle Ben’s Boiling Bag Rice and I have parted ways. You remember my post yesterday about the Savory Pepper Steak and my problem with the rice? Gary and I went 12 miles to the nearest grocery store, Piggly Wiggly more commonly known around these parts of the woods at “The Pig.” We went to get some rice that Carol,my webmaster who is also a good cook and knows everything about cooking, web sites and such recommended. I got there and they did not have the rice I wanted so I ended up with some long grain brown rice. It looked like it would work. Tonight I boiled 1 cup rice with 2 cups water like it called for and when it got done rinsed and drained and then got the oil in the skillet warming, poured in the onions , pinch of sugar, and soy sauce then stirred for a few minutes. Dumped in the rice and started stirring like crazy. It was looking pretty good. Now the scary part.. One egg lightly beaten poured over the rice and stir like crazy.. In just a few minutes it was done.. Smelled heavenly. Put the rice on a plate and added the steak mixture over the rice and yes it was good. I am sorry Uncle Ben…You would not act right and you have to go!!! Well I will keep you for other things like rice pudding but you do not make it in the stir fried rice department..
We had a great dinner on the back porch we have glassed it.. Twinkling tiny lights on the ceiling and a dvd of a crackling fire place playing on the TV.. For a split second I was burning up watching the flames, I thought oh the power of suggestion!!! Then I realized it was only a hotflash!!!
