So tonight I tried a new recipe from Gina’s WW Recipes and it is a keeper. Even the picky three year old ate most of her dinner. It was delicious, few ingredients, and delicious. Oh, and did I mention it is healthy? Seriously, what more could you want from a recipe?!
To start off I pulled out the old rice cooker.
I have been going through my kitchen and getting rid of all those nifty gadgets that seemed like such a good idea when we were registering for wedding gifts, but have not actually been used in the past six years. This was the rice cooker’s audition for the role of kitchen gadget number 5 in our kitchen. It was sprayed down with Pam, then filled with 1-1/4 cups of long grain brown rice, 2-1/2 cups water, and two chicken bullion cubes.
I flipped the switch then checked back several hours later to find it warming the best rice that has been cooked in this house in six years.
How could this gem be in the back of our cabinet collecting dust? The injustice!
About 20 minutes before I wanted to serve dinner, I round up the major players: shrimp, olive oil, garlic, limes, and cilantro.
