'Retirement is really nice when we have weather like today! I can just hunker down with a book or my knitting or bake if I am in the mood! I feel for the people who have to work outdoors in this bitter cold, like the postal workers for instance. I pray for their safety in this bitter cold! Today I am sharing a cozy quick put-together dish that I used when my children were home!
Spanish Rice with Beef:
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 ( 10oz.) pkg. frozen corn
One 12 oz. thick style spaghetti sauce
1 cup water
chopped black olives ( optional)
1 1/2 cup minute rice
Brown beef with spices and onion. Add everything else but the rice and bring to a boil. Stir in rice; cover and remove from heat. Let stand for 10 minutes. Serves 4-6
Stay safe, warm and have a good week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
