The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

My Kinda' Cookin'...

All  G o o d  things must end someday. . .

and so it is for my G r e e n Theme posts!

Since "Mr. Ed's" retirement. . .
we try to watch Barefoot Contessa's cooking show at least once a week! During the early part of March, Ina made Risotto. . . as did "Mr. Ed" and I.

Not having long grain rice in our cupboard, we varied her recipe and made ours in "under 30 minutes or less". My kinda' cookin' On Crooked Creek!


2 cups Chicken Broth
1 1/2 cups Minute Rice
2 tablespoons Butter
1/3 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1/2 cup frozen peas

Pour chicken broth into a Dutch Oven pan.
Add butter and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Stir in minute rice and frozen peas.
Continue to boil for 1 minute, cover pan and remove from heat.
Let the rice and peas sit covered for 5 minutes.
Remove the lid and stir in the Parmesan cheese.

This will be quite creamy in consistency.
Spoon into a serving bow and enjoy!

On Crooked Creek this green dish was delicious!"Mr. Ed's" Risotto served us for our dinner meal and the next day's lunch, as well!

Until next time. . .


During the month of March, I've aspired to connect each post On Crooked Creek with a Green theme. In this post the green theme, obviously, are the green peas in the Risotto! Thank you for allowing me to bring a wee bit of green to your world! Each of you, in the Land of  Blog, add color to my world by your friendship! I am continually blessed!

I don't care how it is made as long as it is nice and creamy!
Have a great weekend, Pat.
