Kool-Aid Dyeing, Sausage and Rice
I posted the results of my Kool-Aid tests here. This is fun! I think I'm going to leave the scientific side of it alone for awhile now, and just play around. I want to see if my grey mohair will take dye well (mohair is supposed to dye excellently) or just look muddy. I've convinced myself not to buy any more yarn, even if it's cheap, so I'm limited to the skein of cotton I bought over the weekend. Maybe I can make a hat out of it...probably not enough for a baby sweater.
Research is going well, and I love our apartment and being able to cook whenever I want. Last night Patrick made sausage and rice in our new pot, and it didn't burn or anything (we used to make it in a camping pot, and the rice burnt every time). I love these new pots and pans! Tomorrow night I think I'll make Chicken Marsala (my dad made it for me over Christmas break and it was really good!). We have some asparagus and a box of couscous mix too, so it'll be a real meal (recently, we've been eating cheap, which isn't very exciting for the eye or palate). Tonight I think I'll make Pasta Primavera, which may sound exciting, but will not be...I guarantee it. It's okay though, I'm hungry.
Sausage and Rice
This recipe is from my mom; I ate it a lot as a child and I still like it! Plus it's easy to make.
- 1 pkg turkey sausage links
- 1 cup celery, chopped finely
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1.5 cups uncooked white rice
- 2 small cans of condensed chicken and rice soup
- 1.5 cups water
- Cut sausage into bite-sized pieces and brown over medium heat. Drain fat if there's a lot of it.
- Add celery and onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring.
- Add rice, soup, and water and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat for 30 minutes or until the rice is soft.
