5 cups long grained white rice
10 ½ cups water
1 stick butter
¼ teaspoon pepper
3 shakes cayenne pepper
½-1 tsp salt
Onions (chopped & dried)
Green onions
about 1 tsp. parsley (chopped & dried)
Meat – precooked chicken, sausage, hot dogs, etc.
Optional – 1-2 tomatoes, or 1 cup spaghetti/tomato sauce. I don't like tomato sauce, so I put less in.

When I made this tonight, I put in three round sausage patties, cut up, and two and a half sliced Polish sausages. Precooked teriyaki chicken would work; hot dogs do too in a pinch, but they lack the flavoring, which goes into the rice while cooking.

1. Water in pan on high.
2. As it comes to a boil, add everything but rice.
3. When it boils, add rice, turn to low, and cook for 18-20 minutes without taking off the lid.

Serves 8, three adults and five hungry boys.

All nature, all creation is covenantal. This table is at the center of that covenant reality,
but it is not a different kind of thing. It is not that mystical spiritual things happen here that do not happen elsewhere. Everywhere we go, all day long, in everything we do, we are partaking covenantally. When we come to this table, this does not change.
This is simply another way of saying that there is nothing magical about this Table. But do not draw the wrong conclusions from this. The whole world is magical, the whole world is suffused with the glory of God, the whole creation invites us to fellowship with Him.
