It began as a childhood memory, rice and ground beef in the skillet. I believed it had a few colors in it along with some mushrooms. My mother had no recollection of this concoction that she once created. So over the years it was trial and error, trying new things, searching, and wondering if what I ate or what I saw was the missing dinner that I longed to eat. I have finally perfected this mystery meal and ready to share it with you all.
