Bunnies and greens

The sudden appearance of the sock bunnies (or is it buddies?) meant that we could have brown rice for dinner. (Although I had to stealthfully de-rice them.) Time to eat some OPO greens! I wasn't entirely sure how to approach the preparation of sock-stored starch, so I decided to go for broke.

The Method
  • 2 C uncooked brown rice (poured from the socks)
  • 2 C greens
  • 3 1/2-4 C water
  • a hot pepper chopped
  • salt
  • garlic
  • butter
  • one leftover Sweet Georgia Brown chicken sausage, sliced
Place the rice, water, butter, and salt in the rice cooker. Add the other ingredients and mix them together lightly without disturbing the rice. Set to cook. 

The Result
We served this with leftover poached chicken and some fresh tomato on the side. Wonderful! I would reduce the water next time by 1/2 C to compensate for the liquid in the greens. The overall effect was a well-seasoned mixture without any single overpowering flavor. A great hit. We shall see, however, if the disappearance of the furry friends goes unnoticed.

The sock buddies did a fine job of storing our starch! Craft time rivals cooking time in our home! (Yummy dinner again honey!)
