Leap Day Sale! (sorry expired)

February 29, 2008

Happy Leap Day!
I got a bit of a late start on the festivities, but I wanted to do something that is rare for the rarest day of the year!

BOGO (that’s buy one get one free) for your order of prints from previous photography sessions!!! Be it maternity, newborn or your family portrait – they are all fair game!

I don’t cook as a passion, but I enjoy it – IF it is quick!
I love love Mexican flavors and got to this soup recipe by way of modifying the rice which is a staple of many Mexican dishes. The soup is yummy and low on fat, calories, not so much on the sodium :)

6 cups water
6 tsp chicken bullion
1 can diced tomatoes (think Rotel)
1/2 to 1 cup rice

Bring water to just about a boil. Add the bullion – this is really to taste – I don’t use stock because the bullion has such more concentrated flavor but a lot of sodium. When this is dissolved I add the Rotel. Any diced tomatoes will do and if you look around you will find them in many flavors now adays. I recently used a rather hot one and it was GOOD! When this is all to a good boil, add the rice and let the whole thing simmer about 20-30 minutes. The more rice you add, the more water it soaks up so it will make the soup more or less soup-y :)
Now for left overs – if you keep some left over in a tupperware it will be great the next day as well BUT the rice will continue to soak up juice so it will be much more thick than you remember.
Feel free to serve with garnishes – try: crumbled crackers, fried tortilla strips, avocado, lime juice, cheese (yum), meats of your choice.
