The Winners!


Thanks for everyone that participate in the Silpat giveaway. The lucky winners are Jenn and Debbie! Congratulations ladies! I'll contact you to get your info.

And now's the time where I should post a recipe, but to be honest, it's Friday and I'm ready to lounge with my babes. I will leave you with a little rice tip that I discovered the other day though. I always end up making too much rice and I don't really like leftover rice, it just doesn't taste as good to me the next day. So I threw some in a skillet with olive oil, and cracked and egg right into it. I stirred it so the wet egg completely coated the rice, threw in some salt and pepper and kept stirring until the egg was cooked. It gave the rice such a nice flavor and texture, but it wasn't necessarily "eggy" tasting. A bit like fried rice, minus all of the other goodies. My picky little boy ate about three helpings of it, so we'll definitely be trying it again!

What does everyone have planned for the weekend? The area that I live in just had a Whole Foods open up so I'm patiently waiting for my hubby to get home so we can check it out! Is it weird to go to the grocery store on a date? Kim I think I'm going to try and find that cheese and bread that you posted the other day! Anyway, apparently I'm in a rambling mood, so I best be going to before I really get going. Have a wonderful weekend my friends and I'll see you Monday!

Congrats to the winners! Don't worry about rambling. I think I'm the world's worst at it. You should hear me leave a voice messsage ;D I love the leftover rice idea. Have fun at Whole Foods. I hope they have the pretzel baguette and cheese. They have little pretzel rolls too inside of their bakery case. My 8 year old is addicted to them. Have fun and let us know what you pick up!

Jenn said...

Woohoo!!! I've been missing the use of a silpat for quite a while now. I can just image the first thing I make with it. Cookies, biscuits, oh...wait...candy!! ;-D

Don't worry I tend to ramble a lot, too. Rambling is good that's what I say.

ps. replied to your email.

Congrats to the winners. I love the egg and rice idea. Sort of like chicken fried rice...without the chicken!

Extra rice: mix one egg, some parmesan and pepper = rice crust for a quiche. Especially since I can't make a good pastry crust for quiche, this is my new go-to.

Debbie said...

ha ha....not weird to go to a grocery store on a date! When we drive into Reno, that's where I want my lunch date to take me! Whole Foods.
Have a nice weekend.

Congrats to the winners!

LOL, I try to cook a little extra rice so I can saute some up as a snack for the kids along with some veggies.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!

Hee, I like that you're rambling, it almost makes this seem like a conversation, you and us gossiping.
I never really have leftover rice though, because I simply don't make them. HEe.

Congrats to the winners!
