First of all, can I just say that by following this recipe you will enjoy the best rice salad you’ve ever tasted.
Justine’s Rice Salad
- 1 cup brown rice (that’s one cup uncooked but obviously you cook it, then let cool)
- 6 spring onions
- 1 capsicum, chopped
- 1/2 cup of cashews (I am generous with my half a cup)
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup of currents (I usually go the half cup)
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup celery
- big bunch of flat leaf parsley
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1/2 cup olive oil (or less)
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic crushed
We had this salad with The Best Beef Casserole last night and they work well as a combination.
Both taste great as leftovers.
So what news?
Well the boy is in Seattle to go to a gaming championship.
The girl is back in school, play a success, studying hard.
Groover is doing manly things like working.
And I am still obsessed by rowing – getting on the water as much as I can.
I fear I have become very dull indeed.
And the not drinking is probably not helping.
I’m doing Dry July this month.
I thought it would be harder. There were a few moments when I thought I really wanted a glass of cold sav blanc, but water in my wine glass seemed to stave that off.
And you never know, a month off alcohol could be just what I need to cut back long term.
I have been waking up much earlier and much easier.
Although that could also be my rowing obsession.
