Long days

Well the barn is finished; it's good to have that done.  
There are still fences to be worked on and lots of other odd things that need done besides wood cutting and splitting.  We're getting to that last one late.

We pulled the beets this last weekend and boiled them in a big tub last night.
I got the fire going before Dave got home and we did them in 2 batches.  Of course the 2ed one never takes as long to boil as the water is already hot from the first one.




Another Spanish Rice

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons onion chopped
1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup water
1 cup salsa or tomato sauce
Add oil to a large skillet. Add the onion and cook until tender, around 5 minutes.
Add rice to the skillet, stir often. When the rice begins to brown stir in the chicken broth, water & the salsa. Lower the heat and cover with a lid and simmer 20 to 30 minutes, or until liquid has been absorbed into the rice.
