Gluten and Corn free Spicey Hamburger Rice Dish

We are always looking for ways to change up what we eat because I have to not eat any gluten or corn. My husband came up with this recipe and we really like it. It can be used by itself or with a salad or as a filling for stuffed green bell peppers.
Ingredients are:
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 jar Jumping Jacks Mild Salsa ( you can use any salsa of your choice this one is gluten and corn free and is made by my brother)
10 oz of long grain white rice ( we used Rice Expressions organic white rice that is microwaveable)
Shredded cheddar cheese to your liking

Brown the ground beef in a skillet and drain. Cook the rice as it says to. Now to ground beef add the rice and jar of salsa and cook till salsa is warm and ingredients are mixed well. Add the shredded cheese to taste stirring until melted. Serve up and add more shredded cheese to top. Makes a large serving for two if you are hungry. It is a great way to change things up. Hope you like it.

Simple Blue Scarf

My Granddaughter turned 18 this month and so I decided to crochet her a scarf. She loves the scarfs I make her from the fun fur to the warm ones and all in between. This one is for warmth with hopefully enough fashion to be worn with anything.

This is a simple pattern but looks elegant.
Caron's Simply Soft yarn in your choice of color ( I used ocean though here it looks really blue)
size J hook
Row 1 ch 250
Row 2 hdc in 2nd ch from hook and ea ch across
Row 3- 4 ch 2 turn, hdc in first hdc and ea hdc across
Row 5 ch 2 turn, hdc in first hdc, ch 1, sk next hdc, hdc in next hdc, *ch 1 sk next hdc, hdc in next hdc repeat in pattern from * to end
Row 6 ch 2 turn, hdc in ea hdc and ch 1 space across
Row 7 ch 2 turn hdc in ea hdc across
Row 8-9 repeat row 7
Repeat rows 5-9 two times more then fasten off and weave in ends.
I made this scarf long so that she can wear it in many different ways.
This would also be easy to make into a cowl by sewing the ends together when finished.
It was simple, easy and fast and I plan on making more for presents. This would also be an easy pattern to make several for gifts to shelters.
I wrote these instructions down after I made this so I am hoping the instructions are accurate.
This is my own pattern and feel free to use but please give me credit
Thanks and happy crocheting
