Saturday Night Yum Yums!

After running our errands on Saturday, I decided I wanted to try the Wild Rice Hotdish recipe a colleague from work (Vicki) gave me to try. I know “Hotdish” sounds so Midwestern. It was so good and so easy to make.

I started dishing up before I remembered to take the picture. oops. 🙂

Here is the recipe-

1 box (original recipe) of Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice with seasoning packet (not the quick cooking)

1 lb. browned hamburger

1 cup sliced carrots

1 cup sliced celery

1 can cream of mushroom soup

1 can of chicken with rice soup

2 cans of water

Mix all together and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours.

– What I did a little different, I added more wild rice of what I had in the pantry and then I did two cups of carrots, Carl’s not a fan of celery. It was really good. Carl added Tabasco sauce to his second helping.

For the last week or so I had been thinking of what treats can I make for work that are gluten free so I can eat them. While my hotdish was baking I made chocolate scotcheroos. I used the new gluten free rice krispies they just came out with, for the peanut butter I used Mara Natha All Natural No Stir peanut butter (also gluten free) and I used All Natural Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips. They turned out awesome! 🙂
