How cute is this little guy? And, no, I don’t mean Caaaaaaaarl.
I decided to form the llama over a rich, comforting pan of hamburger gravy, which all of my guests really loved. The rice and gravy make a simple, but satisfying meal alone or a fun dish to serve alongside some grilled meat and potato salad like I did for my party.
1 lb ground beef
1 (10 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 small onion, minced
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon beef bouillon
3 garlic cloves
Black sesame seeds
1. In a large skillet, brown ground beef. Drain.
2. Add soup, onions, beef bouillon, and 1 can of water (using the soup can) to the beef.
3. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes. (If you want a thicker gravy, add some flour and simmer 5 minutes longer. I liked the gravy just as it was).
4. Use your hands to form the rice into the shape of a llama. Add 2 garlic clove ears and a garlic clove snout. Press in the lentils for eyes. Arrange the sesame seeds on the snout to form mouth and nose.
Serves 6 (Recipe doubles easily)

This ode to the llama drama back in February is just perfect to go along with the rice.

We’re cheering you on
And my gift to you is the stupid song”
