Since Greg is a trucker, he's often not around for supper — sometimes for weeks at a time. My girls and I generally eat a little differently when he's not home. They're not big into casseroles and neither really eats potatoes (other than fries!), so we eat a lot of pasta and rice dishes and not a whole lot of meat — which isn't a bad thing, but wouldn't go over well with daddy around!!
Taken from The Taste of Home Magazine --- This is a ground beef and corn bread recipe all in one casserole and made into a main dish meal --- I also add in corn nibets and some jalapeno peppers also, serve with gravy on the side, this is total comfort food! :)
I doubt this really qualifies as authentic Chinese cuisine, but it's delicious nonetheless and very simple. Use pre-cooked rice that's been sitting in the fridge for at least a day or two (or in the freezer) for the best results.
Loved this recipe I found in "Quick Cooking". I reduced the amount of olive oil in the original recipe, and this turned out to be quick weeknight meal for the family. I served this with broccoli and bread.
"Sopa seca" literally translates to "dry soup". A friend of ours from Mexico served this delicious rice sidedish to us and I enthusiastically went about finding a recipe for it. This is from the cookbook Mexican: Healthy Ways With a Favourite Cuisine by Jane Milton. A more glutinous rice dish than the ever popular Spanish rice. Is this an authentic Mexican recipe? I don't know, but I do know we like this dish!
I'm not sure where my mom got this recipe, but these are THE BEST MEAT BUNS EVER -- but sadly, they're NOT quick and easy, so make a day of it and fill your freezer! Plan ahead because the dough's easier to work with if it's refrigerated overnight. Serve with plum sauce -- that's right, plum sauce. You'll never be sorry.
This delicious pasta is very simple to make, yet it tastes as though it took hours. There are many variations of this recipe, but I've found this to be the easiest and best tasting. It is by no means a low-fat meal, but if you go for a nice big walk after you eat, you will think this pasta was worth the extra exercise! Serve it with a crisp salad and some crusty bread (for mopping up any excess sauce!).
