I am in cleaning up mode and I am busy sorting and throwing out and more throwing out. This, is in preparation, for the new school year. In the Fall, I run off tons of sheets, for my new fifth grade, and that gets me started for quite a while. Of course, I continually make new sheets, as I need them. These, that I start the year with are what I generally do, as an introduction to the major subjects.
What does this have to do with cooking and recipes? In my piles of neatly organized school subjects, I found a folder of recipes, ones that I have not made, in ages. One of these is a brown rice salad that we used to have, quite often.
Somehow, this sheet silently got itself into the folder that sneaked into my school papers. How do these pesty recipes take on a life of their own? Who cares? I am now sitting with some of my golden oldie recipes and I plan to make some of them. I did make this brown rice salad and it is as good as I remembered.
