We have accepted an offer for our house!  YEAH!!!  Our house was on the market for 41 days, which seems like a lifetime to me, but the realtor keeps telling me it is super fast.  The average days on market for our price range is 103, so I guess she is right.  I am just so excited to be able to have an end date, and be able to move on with the next stage of our lives.

Now…. The Food!

The Rice - a family recipe that is a great side dish for the whole family.

I am struggling with what to call this post.  This rice doesn’t really have a name.  We just call it “The Rice”.  It is a recipe my husband grew up with.  It is super simple, but so good.  It is fancy enough that we have made this many times while entertaining, or even with small holiday meals.  But we also make it during the week too.  Everyone loves it, and are amazed when they see the recipe.  Aside from the baking time, it is super quick and easy to throw together.  The first time I had this rice was when I was 15.  My husband (then boyfriend) was helping me with math homework (he was a much smarter Senior boy).  He was supposed to be making us frozen pizza for dinner.  But instead he made Chicken and this Rice!  I was blown away, and it was so good!  Had to keep him around after that 🙂
