Rice Mix

Reading that last post reminded me of a mix that I made up earlier this year, after looking into a few different herb options this is what I liked. I'll even tell you a great gift idea that I did. It was a New's Year party and I filled this mix into a chineses take out box and then I tied a note that said, "Have a RICE New Year" and since it was for a group of close friends of ours, I actually said, "Have a RICE New Rear" I thought it was funny..This idea came from a darling book of my mother in laws, I think it's the Gooseberry something or other, which crafters out there will be familiar with (though they didn't suggest the "rear" word on the tag). This is a great gift all year long too!

Rice Mix:
2 cups rice
4 chicken bouillon cubes
1 TB parsley
1/2 TB basil
1/2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp salt
ground pepper
Mix together and store in container with lid.
To use: Boil 4 1/2 cups water. Add 4 TB butter, stir in rice and when it boils turn to low and cover for 25 minutes.

I think that is hilarious! I hope I get invited to a New Year's party just so I can steal your joke!

Thanks for thinking it was funny, despite the nature of my friends, I couldn't tell if anyone thought it was actually funny, I expected more laughs.
