Cheesy Beef and Rice

Just to give credit where credit is due,
I found this at

It was a great meal to put together earlier in the day, then pop in the oven on busy night.
We all really liked it!

1 cup long grain brown rice
1 lb ground beef
3 T. minced onion, or fresh chopped onion
1/2 t. garlic powder
sea salt, to taste
1 cup sour cream (light worked great)
1/3 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Boil two cups of water. Stir in rice. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
Brown ground beef with onion and garlic powder. Mix with rice and salt well. Stir in sour cream and milk. Spread into a casserole dish. Sprinkle cheese on top. Cover well and freeze.

To bake: Thaw casserole. Place uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until bubbly.

Better for You Molasses Cookies

My girls really liked these and Steve said they're "pretty good".

3/4 c. molasses
1/4 c. honey
2 T. brown sugar
1 egg

Mix: then add:

2 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
2 t. soda
2 heaping T. milled flax seed
2 t. ginger
1/2 t cloves
1/4 t. salt

Have Quality Control test the dough

Roll dough into balls. Roll into sugar if desired.
(I just dipped the tops in sugar. Sometimes if you roll them, the sugar on the bottom burns)

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes
Place them immediately onto a dish towel to keep them from getting crispy on the edges.
