Rebecca Quilts!

Rebecca finished her first quilt today and I figured it would be best to share it on her blog.  She has made this quilt for her baby sister (ok yet to be born baby sister) Julia Dawn Healey is due to come into the world March 29th 2012.  We are having give away for those that guess Julia's B-day or birth weight you can visit to join in that giveaway.  Until the baby is born this quilt will sit in her empty crib in Rebecca's sister comes home from the hospital.
 Showing off the back previous to being washed.
Cutting up the rag quilt.  Rebecca did every thing her self on this quilt from cutting up the blocks to sewing it all together.  She even cut the rag quilt herself.  She is very happy with how it turned out.

Dutch Oven BBQ Chicken and Rice Scout Style

Last Saturday the 11 year old scout patrol met for lunch.  We had asked our scout to come up with a meal plan but he had forgot to plan something so we fell back to the old standard as Doug my assistant calls it.  The recipe is simple and easy.  I like it best in the Dutch Oven but can be made on the stove just as easy.

2-3 pieces of Boneless Skinless Chicken.
1 Onion
1 Green Pepper (optional Doug loves the color so to him we had to have it)
1-2 Cans Corn
1-2 Bottles of BBQ sauce I like the honey BBQ
1 box Minute Rice
Seasonings to taste (Salt, Pepper, Garlic salt or minced garlic or what ever spices you like with BBQ)

Brown in the dutch oven (using oil) the Chicken.  You can add the onions at this time also depending on how cooked you like your onions, I toss mine in now.  Once the chicken is browned pull it out of the Dutch Oven and cut it up into smaller pieces.  Toss them back into Dutch Oven.  Have scout help or if at home and have kids get them to help (why do you think BeccaCooks likes to cook so much get them involved)

Once the chicken is cooked though you can add the Corn (with its liquid), and the BBQ sauce.  Take the empty BBQ sauce containers fill them with water shake them up and pour that water also into pot.  You can add little or a lot of liquid depending on how many you need to serve.

Bring the liquid to a boil and then add the minute rice.  Stir well continue cooking for about 5 minutes.  Then serve.

If you are new to dutch oven cooking or old hat the way you clean up is different then in the kitchen.  You never wash your dutch oven out, with soap.  They get seasoned with oil.  Because the BBQ sauce will seep into the pores of my dutch oven and make every thing taste BBQ I fill my Dutch oven full of water and boil it for 5 min after cooking my BBQ chicken and rice and then I re-oil my pot and put it away.  My scouts love this meal and I hope that you will also.
