Blog Recommendation


This blog has a list of all the "kids eat free" nights and lots of ideas for cheap or free entertainment for families in central Iowa. It's just nice to have it bookmarked if you are having one of those days when you think it would be fun to go do something! I can't remember who told me about it; otherwise, I would thank you right now. :)

I found a recipe that I like even better for chocolate pudding here.

(It also has recipes for vanilla and butterscotch, but I haven't tried them.)

I haven't read anything else on this blog, but I do like this recipe! :)

Hamburger Rice Casserole

A great comfort food and makes a big batch! You may want to cut the recipe in half if you don't like leftovers.

In a pot, brown:
2 lbs hamburger
2 cups onion, finely diced
4 stalks celery, diced

Add and simmer:
2 cups brown rice (measured before cooked), cooked in beef stock or water
sea salt

Add white sauce to pot and mix well. Heat through.

White Sauce:
Melt 3 T butter. Add 3 T arrowroot powder. Whisk constantly for 2-3 minutes. Slowly add 2 cups organic whole milk. Simmer till thick and bubbly.
