I know a rice dish was requested from your sister in law but you may want to consider my favorite starch side dish with grilled beef, and it's super easy.

Beefy Orzo

1 cup Orzo pasta
1 cup mushrooms, saute in butter (sometimes I use some dried Porchini instead in the mix)
1 envelope Lipton Onion Soup mix
2 cups water

Bring to the boil, cover and cook on low for 15 min. without peeking. Fluff with a fork and serve.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Oh, here's a tip - If you make this in advance and store overnight, don't mix in the peas - they'll lose their nice, green color and turn more pale if stored so long. It's better to toss them in just before serving or even a few hours before serving.

Thanks to all of you

who so kindly have helped me out once again. I will definitely be trying some of these recipes. I always like to have a "referral" so I know it's good!
