We are all watching our dollars these days. I know it may sound stupid but I dont like to hear about the DOW. I just prefer to have my rose colored glasses on. Oh, that's not to say that I havent been thinking of ways to watch my spending because I most certainly have. It just means that I am scared to death of our Country's current situation and what it will mean for my family and my children. I try to focus on the here and now and not try to look at it too much. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! Okay breathe, in and out, in and out.

So here is one of the things I cooked up that will help to keep the money in our pockets a little longer. Cheesy, rice patties. These are a lot like arancini only they are in patty form. The idea is the same. They are really tastey but that doesn't mean that a little mango chutney wouldnt taste great on them. Or tomato jam. I'm thinking it would. I liked it with basil and tomatoes.

Lori's Lipsmacking Goodness Original

2 cups cooked rice
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic or 1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup peccorino romano or parmesan or asiago
1/2 teaspoon salt
olive oil for frying

Combine all ingredients. Form little round discs and fry in olive oil, until lightly golden. You can make small ones and use as an appetizer or make larger ones for a meal.
