Birda Mae's Recipe Corner:Herbed rice

  • 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  •  2 tablespoons  of chopped fresh parsley, basil, oregano or thyme
  • or 2 teaspoons each if you are using dried herbs

  1. Bring water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan:add rice.Cover , reduce hat and simmer 20 minutes or until broth is absorbed, Add the herbs last 7 or 5 minutes.
I have to mention how being born and bred mostly in Texas(although I still feel
very Californian) I didn't think it was possible to have good rice without a truck load of butter or margarine.  In the past if I had rice or grits and no butter
I flat out would not eat it.  I usually felt like I was being punished.  So I am really glad to share this recipe because it  was really good.  Even the picky eater at it.  I also had some fresh Italian leaf parsley and fresh basil and it really made
a nice presentation and went really well with the sauteed pork  chops I made that day.  Well until next time stay gold

Project Life App : Digital Scarpbook Page

I am trying to figure out how to post these layouts without the blogger app.
I got a new phone and ever since I reformatted the SD card no more room for Blogger app😑. Was it a great app?
No. Was it useful enough? Yes kinda like oatmeal , not spectacular but the health benefits are what you need.😝 I am still editing pics with the sketch camera app.
Most of the colors came from the Inspirational​ themed kit and the Yellow Stripes from the High Five Edition. Well I hope this works

Project Life App : Digital Scrapbook Page

I believe I figured out a way to add these layouts. I have to post through Instagram on my phone first. Then add it to Blogger via my phone . If only I had more room on my SD card. Anyhooo....I finished Waiting by Ha Jin. I also finished Prey by Michael Crichton. (Author of Jurassic Park) and started on The Client by John Grisham, saw the movie years ago thought I would try the book.I used the High Five Edition . The photos were edited by Avairy app for the color app and Sketch Camera app so I could use them with the bright colors.  I miss traditional  layouts since school is out I will try to do my project life photo album.
