Rice dinners are budget friendly and filling. Whether you need an easy weeknight dinner or just looking for ways to jazz up rice, you’re sure to find something you’ll enjoy here!
There’s something extremely satisfying about rice. At least, my tummy thinks so! I mean, who doesn’t love a good, easy rice dinner like a quick casserole or one pot meal on a weeknight? And rice is so versatile, you can add it to almost anything. Then, if you have leftovers of plain rice, you can make a delicious rice pudding.
But more than my tummy, our budget appreciates rice, too. It’s both filling and affordable. Well, affordable depending on the rice you buy, right?
What kind of rice do you like?
Can I level with you? I’m always up for plain white rice topped with Cuban style black beans. Or plain white rice and butter. Seriously, no fuss. Just pop that stuff in a [easyazon_link identifier=”B007WQ9YNO” locale=”US” nw=”y” nf=”y” tag=”ivsvabasaan0a-20″ cart=”y” cloak=”n” localize=”y” popups=”n”]rice cooker[/easyazon_link](because I can’t cook rice without it), slab some faux butter on it, and scarf it down.
Since hubby isn’t fond of plain rice, we have to jazz it up for him a bit.
This is where these lovely rice dinners come in handy!
