Wild Rice Casserole!

My mom gave me this recipe, and it's kind of vague.
It calls for a box of wild rice.
Box? I am guessing that the stuff I bought last time was 8 oz.
I will go look and see what a box is
at the grocery store, but now my friend Jane went to Northern
Minnesota and brought me back one pound bags, so we shall see
how this works. I'll fix it when I find out.

Grease a casserole dish.

1 Box wild rice soaked in water overnight.
drain, then mix in the bowl with:
1 cup of whole canned tomatoes, chopped up.
1 cup sliced black olives
1 cup onions, shopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 cup oil
1 cup boiling water
1 cup grated cheese

Bake 1 hr @ 350

I'd salt and pepper to taste,
I'm going to use chicken stock,
my mom used American cheese, I think
I'll use a cheddar.

I am a farmer

Okay..I am not a farmer; but I did grow fresh herbs, tomatoes, red and green peppers this year. If the squirrels don't grab the tomatoes, peppers, and cilantro to make salsa with, we should be good to go in a few weeks.
Oh, BTW..those tomato planters, the Topsy Turvy things..hahahaa..THEY WORK! Photographic proof to follow.
I will be making the marinara sauce on this blog ( some place ) if we don't eat them all or they don't all get stolen. Something small and furry ate my Italian parsley.....

My annual post

WOW..I really need to be better about this, don't I? :p You think with over 100 cook books and all the online sites I belong to, that I would contribute more.
