There are many things that makes me recall memories of those who have past. I have been blessed with some great ladies in my life. I am pretty sure that they are my pull to things vintage. It keeps all those past good memories alive.
I also believe that food is a memory trigger too. I love re-creating recipes handed down to me throughout the years. This past weekend my loving memories have been in full force. At times making me a little weep eyed.
First I found a skirt that reminded me of my Grandma Vern. She would of paired it with a white blouse, a pair of pearls and a pair of her Grasshopper flats. You can learn more about this skirt, along with a few other of my weekend finds on our new "Latest Finds" page.
Then for the second time this week we made my Aunt June Bug's, famous rice, per my sons. I love it because its three only ingredients-Jasmine Rice (Aldi's), Kerry Gold Butter, and sweet condensed milk.
The Jasmine Rice is my new go to for rice. I have officially said good-bye to Minute Rice. Once you try it, you will understand why and I promise you will love it.
The simple recipe is as follows:
4-6 Servings of Cooked Rice
1 Stick of Kerry Gold Butter or butter of choice
1 Can of Sweet Condensed Milk
Mix together with cooked rice an wa la!
I hope you enjoy the rice and thank you for sharing my memories with me this Monday.
Till next time!
