Minute Rice, Dinner's done in a minute! Recipe and giveaway ends 4-26

Being a mom to 6 kids, a full time college student, a homemaker, a wife and all the jobs that go with those I really have to manage my time. So when it comes to dinner I like things that are of course yummy, healthy but I need fast. One of the things I always have in my cabinet is Minute Rice. Why you ask? Well because it has everything I wanted in a meal. It is fast, easy, yummy, and healthy! To to that off you can make so many different things with it.

Ok I know your thinking rice is rice but honestly its not! I have tried other brands and been very disappointed. I got mushy rice, hard crunchy rice, and some mixture that was so not edible. So I stick with Minute rice. I buy the boxes that are done in 10 minutes or less for family dinners and for quick lunches for me I buy the Ready to serve minute rice cups that are done in 60 seconds in the microwave. My husband like the white rice ready to go cups for a night snack. He cooks it then puts it in a bowl with milk, sugar and cinnamon and downs it. He loves it! Minute Rice always comes out perfectly cooked and comes in so many different flavors and rice types. Honestly if you haven't tried it you should. You can make desserts with it, breakfast, lunch and dinners. I love making stirfry or fried rice and rice bowls. They are some of my favorite recipes. Here is another great easy and fast recipe from Minute Rice. Check it out and pick up some Minute Rice today!
