THE Rice



We have accepted an offer for our house!  YEAH!!!  Our house was on the market for 41 days, which seems like a lifetime to me, but the realtor keeps telling me it is super fast.  The average days on market for our price range is 103, so I guess she is right.  I am just so excited to be able to have an end date, and be able to move on with the next stage of our lives. 

Now.... The Food!

I am struggling with what to call this post.  This rice doesn't really have a name.  We just call it "The Rice".  It is a recipe my husband grew up with.  It is super simple, but so good.  It is fancy enough that we have made this many times while entertaining, or even with small holiday meals.  But we also make it during the week too.  Everyone loves it, and are amazed when they see the recipe.  Aside from the baking time, it is super quick and easy to throw together.  The first time I had this rice was when I was 15.  My husband (then boyfriend) was helping me with math homework (he was a much smarter Senior boy).  He was supposed to be making us frozen pizza for dinner.  But instead he made Chicken and this Rice!  I was blown away, and it was so good!  Had to keep him around after that :)


The Rice
Printable Recipe

2 cups Minute Rice
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)
1 can Condensed French Onion Soup
1 small can Mushroom (you can saute fresh ones if you have them)
1 small can of Water

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. 

Melt butter in a pan. Add the rice.  Cook the rice until lightly toasted, stirring frequently. 

Place rice into a casserole dish that has a cover.  Pour in soup, mushrooms and water.  Mix together.  Cover and bake for about 45 minutes, or until all liquid is absorbed.

First things first- Yayyyyyyyy! I'm so happy for you and your family that your house sold. I'm sure that's a big relief for you. CO here you come! Now to the rice- Yum! I love rice and flavored rice is even better. But what I think is even sweeter is that you have known your hubby since you were 15!! The fact that he cooked this for you to "impress" you.. too cute. I think this rice sealed the deal. You should call it your Seal the Deal Rice. :)

I always do my rice in the oven. I add turmeric and chicken bouillon (although lately I can't due to the MSG and migraines, so add seasoning salt instead)usually. My hubby loves rice and he would love this dish called, "The Rice". LOL

Congrats on the home sale! That is incredibly fast!!! (Even though I know it doesn't seem like it.) Ours took one year and 3 days. Ugh. Glad that's all over with now. Good luck with the next steps. :)

Congrats on getting such a quick offer on the house Erin! That's awesome, especially in this economy. Yay!!

And I can attest to the fact that that rice IS amazing. I have made it like that before (I think I saw the recipe on a bag of rice or something years ago.... probably about the same time you were 15 lol (now that *I* feel old).

Congratulations! Also I love rice. I have an unnatural obsession w/ carbs & this post is helping to fuel it, not that it's a bad thing!
