Haystacks


Stephen had his birthday this week, so he got to choose what he wanted for dinner that night. He chose Haystacks. Sorry I didn't get a picture of this on a plate- I was too busy scarfing it down. :-) I love this!

Haystacks
Rice
Turkey or Chicken Gravy*
Chopped turkey or chicken mixed into the gravy
Shredded cheese
Salsa
Shredded coconut
Chopped fresh tomatoes
Chopped onion
Chopped bell pepper
Pineapple chunks
Sour cream
Tortilla chips

Layer everything on your plate- starting with the rice and gravy, then adding whatever else you want. The combinations might not sound appealing, but it's really delicious. We mix the rice mixture up, then scoop and eat with the tortilla chips.

*I normally use a soup stock to make this gravy. I start with about 4 to 6 cups of stock, stir in the flour/milk mixture, add salt and pepper to taste and then stir in the meat.

Hey Rachel! Still loving the blog. I recently changed my blog name and was wondering if you could update your link? It's now http://cookingformyfamily.blogspot.com instead of http://familieseatinghealthy.blogspot.com

Feel free to delete this, I just didn't know how else to get ahold of you. I still have your link up as well but I changed it to the new "blog roll" feature they have... kinda neat!

Keep up the good work! :)

I just found your blog, and will be back often. I'm not a blogger but I love finding "common sense" cooking blogs that actually post recipes that fit into a frugal budget!!
