Syrian Rice - my version

I started off with fresh orange juice from my "organic" tree
in my backyard. (See previous posting.)
Put a big pot of rice on to cook, using chicken broth
that is low-sodium and MSG-free

I chopped dried apricots and prunes and then sauteed
them along with slivered almonds in butter... just until heated through.
I then added some apricot preserves and the orange juice.
Next, I added chopped, cooked chicken breasts and shrimp,
stirring until heated through thoroughly.
This makes one of my family's favorite meals... Syrian Rice...
but it's done with my own little twists that probably
make it a little un-Syrian. Oh well...
The original recipe did come from my mother
who did live in Syria. Does that count??

This looks so delicious and I love that you grow organic grapefruit! Sounds like an awesome, healthy dish:) You might want to read my post "Flamingo Ladies Bookclub...Being Dead is No Excuse." I had the monthly party for my bookclub in December and the book was one of my favs...Being Dead is No Excuse. It was probably the third time I read this book. I prepared food from to serve to my guests from the recipes in the book. The post is from December 21, 2009 on my blog. Have a wonderful day!:)
