This past weekend our Town Green here in Longmeadow was filled with talented crafters and artists, food and local history. Visitors enjoyed themselves while chatting with friends. Long Meddowe Days is in May and my hubby was on the planning committee.
Dinners have been quick, easy and nutritious. With all of the bustle on the home front, I was so pleased one night to locate 2 Cups of the "leftover" Rice, served two days earlier, in my fridge. It was the beginning of Spanish Rice. Was that ever a time saver after a non-stop day!
1 lb. Ground Beef, browned
1 can (15 oz.) Tomato Sauce
1 can (15 - 20 oz.) Tomatoes - whole or pieces, drained
1 Green Pepper - cut into strips, optional
2 Cups cooked Rice
1/4 tsp. Oregano
1/4 tsp. Basil
1 Tablespoon chopped Parsley
- Brown 1 lb. Ground Beef.
- While browning Beef, combine Tomato Sauce, Tomatoes and cut Green Pepper in large pot and simmer.
- Add browned Beef and stir.
- Add in cooked Rice, Oregano, Basil and Parsley. Stir well and simmer 30 minutes.
- Stir occasionally while simmering.
Do you use leftover Rice in another meal?
