Made this one not expecting to like it but it was really good. I used spinach instead of kale.

White (BASMATI) Long Grain Rice White long grain rice is easy!!!!!! - Forget what it says on packets. The secret is to reduce the starch in the rice; rinsing and draining twice, once before cooking and once after cooking readily achieves this I prefer Basmati for perfumed smell, flavour and taste. 180g/6oz White Basmati Long Grain Rice ½ to 1tbsp Salt - to taste 25g Butter Pour rice into a sieve, rinse thoroughly in COLD water and drain; Fill a large pot to ½ to ¾ with cold water, add the salt and butter and bring to boil; Add rice, stirring well to avoid any sticking, the butter helps in this respect; Cover, bring back to boil and simmer for some 10 to12 minutes or so until rice is soft but still has a slight bite; Meanwhile boil water in a kettle; When Rice ready, drain in sieve then RINSE with BOILING water from kettle and allow to drain again; Stir with fork; Stick free rice

Spring Omelet

Submitted by: babycook921 
This vegetable omelet is great at any time of the year, but it is best in the spring when asparagus and mushrooms are in season. Serve with toast or a bagel.

Good morning! Quick & easy tonight. No asparagus, but I have green pepper, tomatoes, green onion and mushrooms chopped and waiting.

Savory beef and pork meat loaf with a sweet barbecue sauce topping is grilled right on the grates, with no pan, for a smoky flavor.

They said colder here to, but then said up to 70's, so ten degrees colder. :) But I do see down to 46 in a couple nights...so I'm ready to make chili.

I cannot wait to get down to Florida. So bummed that we didn't get to come down in Nov but we're shooting for May now. I just need to check my daughter's school schedule to make sure there's nothing uber important going on. I already bought 5 day Disney Park Hopper passes, which is the most expensive part of the trip(eyeroll)....still need to "discuss" transportation w/hubby. DD & I do not like to fly but it sure would be nice not to be in the car that long.

I never had any desire to try fish tacos - ever! Someone brought extras to work from Del Taco, to share, and I was convinced to try one. I hate to admit that I really, really like Del Tacos fish tacos! Just seems wrong ;) I truly enjoy trying grilled fish tacos at different places now, on a quest for a healthier version. I do like the grilled ono healthmex version at Rubio's - and two have approximately the same calories as one of their regular tacos!

I thought they'd be gross too but they really are pretty good! My husband orders them a lot when we go out.
