Playing catch up!

So we learned in class the way to make perfect rice. Well rice that can be reheated without becoming soggy! Yay right? So now I am going to share this secret with everyone else. It's really simple!

First take 4-5 quarts of water, and bring to a boil. Season with salt. Add 3/4 cup of rice and stir. Keep the boiling going and cook for exactly 15 mins. No longer no shorter! Once it has boiled for 15 mins, take off heat and rinse in cold water until the rice is cold! And there you have it!

So what we did the first day after we made the rice we added yummy veggies (onions and carrots)

First you melt the butter! Yummy butter! haha, anywho once the butter is melted and the veggies and sweat. Once they are tender season and then add the rice. Cook until heated! The eat! I love rice! haha!

Chasseur Sauce 
 3oz Mushrooms sliced finely 
1/2 Tomato  skinned and de-seeded 
1oz Shallots  Minced
1 oz butter
1/2 quart Demi-glace
1/2cup White wine
Chopped Parsley

Melt the butter, sweat the shallots, add the mushrooms and season with salt. add the white wine and reduce by 3/4, add the demi-glace and tomatoes and simmer until it is able to coat the back of a spoon but not too thick. Take off the heat and taste. Season if needed and add the parsley.
