First the Not Green
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 16 ounce jar of Salsa
1/2 cup of cooked Black Beans
1/2 cup kernel corn
Soy Cheddar Cheese
optional – cubed tofu
Preheat oven to 350F
Mix everything together except the Cheese. Personally I don’t like the tofu in the mix but the Baby Creature of the house really likes it so I put it in there. Everything is all mixed up and placed into a casserole dish. Top with the cheese (if you are avoiding soy, you can use Mochi instead). Cover and bake until it starts to get bubbly – about 30-45 minutes. Uncover and put back in the oven to let the cheese crisp up a bit – 10 to 15 minutes.
This is also pretty good with tofutti sour cream instead of the cheese. But put the tofutti sour cream after you’re done cooking just before you serve the rice. My recipe serves 4 people or 2 really hungry people.
On to the GREEN
The yarn that was punishing me from yesterday is sweating it out in a plastic bag. I’m done with it, it’s found a new home and I’m through with it. I dyed a new batch of that color early Saturday just after posting and was able to start casting on Sunday morning.
But that’s not the whole story. If we skipped all day Saturday you would be missing my terrible plight of the finding of the green. I felt the strong need on Saturday to cast on green socks. I needed it. It was for some reason important. My little knit brain got obsessed with the idea of green socks.
I cast these on:
It’s self striping Regia yarn that I was going to do Stella’s Razor Edge socks with them. After knitting the garter band, and realizing green had yet to show up…. I got bored. I needed green and while this has a stripe of green, it just wasn’t enough…. MORE GREEN
I cast on the 2nd Vineyard sock:
It has green in it. I think it even has more green than the striped Regias. Still, I was pining away for the “Punish Me Green” socks. I needed those. I needed all green.
In my sadness for the green, I gave up. I finished one RPM sock in the wonderful Cherry Slush from Union Center It’s not green but I can forgive it.
It’s a pretty sock and it will go great with the shoes.
