Meatballs and Rice


Zeke with Zoi eating Meatballs and Rice



The next time you run out of spaghetti noodles and still want to have your favorite dish just substitute rice instead. That's what I did and I thought the kids were going to be upset with me but they weren't. So give it a try and see what your family thinks. If they like it let me know.

Spaghetti and Rice:

Sauce:

1 large can of diced or crushed tomatoes
1 large can of tomato sauce
2 tsp. of Basil
4 tsp. of Oregano
4 tsp. of garlic powder
2 tsp. of sea salt

Directions:

1. 2 cups or more of rice (brown or white)

2. Bring sauce to a boil and simmer for about 15 minutes

3. Heat Meatballs from the store or your favorite recipe.

Let me know how yours turns out! Blessings!

How to Freeze Eggs For The Winter

Are you concerned that you will have to buy store bought eggs during the winter months when production is down? Some are considering putting in a light to keep up the egg production. I don't want to use the extra energy this winter since it really doesn't get all that cold here in Texas as compared to other states. Plus I don't want to shorten my chicken's life span by making them produce eggs when they are not naturally producing.

You may be thinking that you could store your eggs in an old fashioned way maybe under some liquid glass or lard, but I am thinking that it is so easy just to freeze them now that I have a little deep freezer. Here is how I am doing it!

Directions:

1. Crack open your eggs into a container like a specially made silicone ice tray. I don't have any of those that are big enough, so I used a plethora (bunch of different containers) of containers.

2. Freeze your eggs.

3. Run some water over the bottom of the containers and store them in a freezer safe bag. You can not fry them but you can scramble or use them in baking or any recipe that calls for eggs. If you use separated eggs then you need to separate them when you freeze them.
