Tri-colored rice? Please 'splain.

Great looking dinners, CG and Kay. Taxy, for some reason I can't see your pics - I'm just seeing a couple of x's.

CG, I've been craving ham and bean soup. I'm going to make that in the next couple of days - don't care if it's 100F outside or not, I love it!

It's this GG. I can't begin to tell you how delicious it is. It takes 1 cup per three cups of liquid and takes about 35 min. at a low covered simmer to cook. Tonight I sauted some mushrooms in butter, added 1/2 pack of Lipton onion soup mix and three cups of water to one cup of the mix.
After doing it many times, 2 1/2 cups of liquid just isn't enough for my taste, as stated on the package.

There they are! Looks great!

Kay, I will add your rice to our list on our yearly foray to TJ's.

We went to a classical music concert tonight, so we went to a steakhouse and pigged out on ribeyes, baked potatoes, and salad. Yum!

But I didn't make ham and bean soup. This was my northern riff on southern greens. And it was SO good we have just a wee bit left. It's just as good as ham & bean soup, but isn't as warming. And who needs "warming" when it's 100+ outside!

Ooops, I misread. It's 11:30 and I should have gone to bed an hour ago when I started getting tired! Still sounds really good, though.
