Karl’s Apple Wild Rice Pilaf

I’m making broiled salmon and steamed broccoli for a week night dinner. Looking for something different for a starch I thought about a wild rice pilaf. I happened to have a bruised apple on my counter—one that I was not going to put in someone’s lunch bag—that I needed to use up. Throwing it into the pot turned out to work very nicely.

Karl’s Mediterranean Wild Rice Pilaf with Chicken and Shrimp

Eilene has settled into a routine of a video night on Thursday. Three to five of her friends will show up to watch the Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones or whatever they are into that week. I, of course, am delegated to feed the masses. It is a struggle to think, “What will I feed several starving teenagers this week.”

Karl’s Greek Lemon Pilaf II

Adapted from anonymous 

Usually when I make Greek lamb I make potatoes. Last Easter, I decided to try a Greek lemon rice pilaf recipe. It was good, but for my sister Karen I thought I could make it better for this Christmas Eve’s dinner.

Karl’s Jewel Yam Rice

Jan made sweet potato pie recently and she only used two of the three jewel yams she had bought.  One small yam is not enough for three people, but I did not want to run out and buy more. What could I do to stretch it into a side dish?

Karl’s French Rice Pilaf

Adapted from French: The Secret of Classic Cooking Made Easy

All of this week’s recipes are from a French cook book that Jan bought me. She decided that I should make some recipes from it for the French girl while she was here. I decided that I needed a starch dish for the carbohydrate eaters in the group.
