Epidemic Mac&Cheese

This will be my second of three meals that use ingredients that can be stored for a long time - and cooked quickly.

The humble Mac & Cheese is a comfort food, favoured by many. Mac & Cheese comforts me, too - even more so, when it contains veggies and spices. Here, 3 of the 5 magical spices.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Box Mac&Cheese mix.
  • 1 T Onion chopped / minced, dried.
  • 1/4 t Curry powder.
  • 1/2 t Garlic powder.
  • 1/2 t Ginger powder.
  • 1/2 t Onion powder.
  • 1/4 t Paprika.
  • 1/4 t Tumeric.
  • 4 T Butter / Margarine.
  • 1/4 C Milk.

Preparation:

  1. Boil water in a large pot.
  2. Add dried onion to boiling water.
  3. Add noodles to water, cook until tender.
  4. Drain cooked noodles, put in mixing bowl, add butter, milk, cheese, mix well.
  5. Add spices, mix.
  6. Add butter, milk, mix well.
  7. Add cheese powder, mix.
  8. Serve, immediately.

CoronaVirus Rice

This started out as CoronaVirus Prevention broth - but I like curry and ginger. And someone else suggested adding rice.

CoronaVirus is not going away! Eat healthy!!


Here, we have all 5 identified healthy spices - some in rather generous quantity.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 t Cayenne Pepper.
  • 1/2 t Cinnamon.
  • 1 t Curry Powder.
  • 6 cloves fresh garlic.
  • 1/2 C Ginger Root ("fresh ginger") chunks / 2 T ground ginger..
  • 1/2 t Tumeric.
  • 1 large onion, diced.
  • 1 cube / 1 T powder bouillon.
  • 2 C rice, well rinsed and drained, until clear water.
  • 8 C water.

Preparation

  1. Rinse and drain rice, repeatedly - until water drains clear. This removes starch.
  2. Dice onion, mince 2 cloves of garlic, peel and mince 2 or 3 chunks of ginger root (as possible, without cutting yourself).
  3. Add water to a deep pot or dutch oven, bring to a boil.
  4. Add bouillon, curry powder, minced and whole garlic cloves, grated / minced / whole ginger root, diced onion, rice to boiling water.
  5. Add any other interesting veggies, as desired.
  6. Reduce water from boil, to slow simmer.
  7. Stir, and cover mixture - and simmer. Stir frequently and well, until no water is visible, Remove from heat, and let it cool until all water is absorbed,
  8. Refrigerate in a large pot with tight cover. Warm up in microwave, when hungry. If not hungry, force eat some anyway, regularly.

Protect yourself for CoronaVirus - drink lots of garlic water. I added ginger and onion, and someone else suggested rice. Drink / eat up - and wash your hands!
