Rosy Rice

My dream is being realized. I have an airbnb guest coming to the cottage while I’m gone. And Wilson and Gaby are here, house-sitting and they will greet her! They asked if they should make her breakfast, they know how to clean the place, that’s for sure! And this woman is from Cuenca and speaks spanish, so perfect! And I’m glad for the break. Wow. My dream of traveling while someone else runs the business is being realized.

orange riceRecipe of the Day – Rosy Rice


2 beets
1 c. brown rice

1/4 c. sesame seeds

1 camote

1 tsp. tumeric

1 clove garlic

Pinch salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. thyme


Bring 2 cups of water to a boil. Add the rice, and sesame, and cook for 45 minutes. In a separate pot, boil the beet and camote in enough water to cover. Remove the camote/sweet potato when it’s soft. The beet will take longer, depending on it’s size. Remove from the water. When the veggies are cool, peel and slice into chunks. Add to the rice with the herbs. Delicious hot or cold!!
