Creamy Wild Rice Soup
2 boxes Uncle Ben's Wild Rice
1/4 cup crumbled bacon
2 cups half and half
Combine chicken broth, rice and seasoning mix and chopped onion. Bring to boil then reduce heat, cover, and simmer 35 mintues. Meanwhile, chop up your green onions and shred or chop your chicken. When rice is done simmering, in a separate pot, melt your butter, stir in your flour, and cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Add in your milk and cook (stirring!) until thick and bubbly. Add to your rice mixture. Add your chicken, bacon, and green onions. I then taste it and season with pepper and salt if necessary. Bring up to temperature but do not boil. Add additional chicken stock if it is too thick. Enjoy!
The next thing I have to show you are the goodies I got from my scrapbook night I went to last weekend. A lady from church owns this scrapbook store and she offers it once a month for people to come and work on projects, socialize, and eat sweets. Sounds good, huh. So here is what I got free for having a filled-out punch card. I did a lot of cutting out, of the different patterns, and made this layout of my cute little George. My baby. My girl. Her name is Kennedy but we call her George. Anyhow, here is the layout.
