Hello my friends,
right about now I find myself really missing green!
I do pretty good at enjoying the beauty of our Utah winters, but as the end of February draws near I find myself
hankering for some green. :)
To spend a few hours surrounded by green trees. . .what delight that would bring!
To see life peeking up through the frozen ground,
a patch of moss,
(many of you know my love for moss)
even lichen growing on a tree. Yup, I'm longing for some green!
Oh to hike along a wooded trail.
And spy fronds of ferns. A heavenly day indeed!
It won't be happening for a while, so until then I'll enjoy a bit of green in my cooking.
This recipe for green rice is so delicious and easy to make!
It's the perfect side dish for a St. Patty's Day dinner.
4 c. cooked rice,
1 8 oz. jar cheese whiz
1 cube butter
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
3/4 c. chopped onion
3/4 c. chopped celery
2 pkgs. frozen chopped broccoli
Add cheese whiz to hot cooked rice. Sauté onions and celery in butter. Cook broccoli and drain. Combine all ingredients and stir well. Bake in buttered covered casserole at 350 degrees for 1 hr.
And while I'm eating green I'll remind myself that it won't be long before I will be harvesting lettuce in my garden. . .
And my own fern fronds will be popping up.
oh happy day!!
Don't you agree that life is so much better with a little bit of green?
