Baked Cheddar-Broccoli Rice Cups (found on Facebook)
1 10 – ounce thawed broccoli
1 cup chicken stock
1 cup white rice (I use brown rice)
1/4 cup Ranch Dressing
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup grated cheese (any of your favourite kind)
1/2 tsp salt and pepper – to taste
Move cooked rice to a bowl to cool for a minute.
Throw in all the ingredients, but only use 1/2 of the cheese.
Grease a 8 cup muffin tray and make balls accordingly, thereafter sprinkling the rest of cheese on top.
Put in the oven for 25 minutes and bake at 350 degrees – until golden and crisp.

Chinampa (Nahuatl: chināmitl [tʃiˈnaːmitɬ]) is a method of Mesoamerican agriculture which uses small, rectangular areas of fertile arable land to grow crops on shallow lake beds.
Sometimes referred to as “floating gardens,” chinampas in the Valley of Mexico were artificial islands that usually measured roughly 98 ft × 8.2 ft (30 m × 2.5 m). Chinampas were used by the Aztec [Aboriginal Peoples]. In Tenochtitlan, the chinampas ranged from 300 ft × 15 ft (91 m × 4.6 m) to 300 ft × 30 ft (91 m × 9.1 m). They were created by staking out the shallow lake bed and then fencing in the rectangle with wattle. The fenced-off area was then layered with mud, lake sediment, and decaying vegetation, eventually bringing it above the level of the lake. Often trees such as āhuexōtl [aːˈweːʃoːt͡ɬ] (Salix bonplandiana) (a willow) and āhuēhuētl [aːˈweːweːt͡ɬ] (Taxodium mucronatum) (a cypress) were planted at the corners to secure the chinampa.
Chinampas were separated by channels wide enough for a canoe to pass. These “islands” had very high crop yields with up to 7 crops a year.
