All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16
I trust in God’s Word because He said, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11
Yeshua said, “In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2 So I know I have a big o’ house getting built just for me in Heaven. I imagine my front door will be a gianormous sparkling emerald—because I love green, and my Father knows that. He does, too. Just look around.
By divine inspiration, my favorite Bible character—the one after God’s own heart, King David—tells me to “Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he [Almighty God, my Father] shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” Psalm 37:4 Okay. Anyone who knows me certainly knows that I do delight myself in Him, so, ladies and gentleman . . .
|View from my mansion's front porch! Heavenly!|
Now still on this side . . . Uncle Jim, my mother’s older brother, married Aunt Helda, a Gonzales. She taught Mama to make many Mexican dishes. One of my favorites? You guessed it, tacos. But not like any you’ll find at Taco Bueno or On the Border either. I’d like to share my taco recipe with you, and the one for Mexican rice, too.
Oh yes, and if you enjoy Christian fiction, I’ve written a most excellent (according to the reviewers) historical family saga, the Texas Romance series. If you like my tacos, you’ll probably like my novels, especially since I pray my story gives God glory! Y’all have a blessed day, and may you walk in the favor of the Lord!
Mexican Rice by Grami
2 cups long grain rice
2 Tbsp oil
1 8oz can tomato sauce
Tbsp garlic powder
½-1 tsp salt (to taste – taste the juice just before reducing to simmer)
4 cups chicken broth (can use water, but so much better with however much broth you have)
Open tomato sauce and heap the garlic powder and salt on top of it, set aside
In a skillet that has a lid, heat oil then add rice.
Stir almost constantly until rice is coated then opaque then browning (the browner, the nuttier, stir stir)
Add can of sauce with seasoning (it’ll sizzle and pop) stir fast and
Add liquid, stir, bring to boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer 20 minutes until rice is tender.
You can add chopped onions when stir frying the rice.
You can also add diced tomatoes (if you use the juice, too, make it a part of the 4 cups of liquid)
It’s really good served with English peas, the flavor combo is YUM
