Ready to Serve! Review

Minute Rice as been a staple for our family since I can remember. I remember being a little girl going over to grandmas house and seeing that recognizable red box in the cupboard. So now when we go to the store we always read for the Minute Rice box. But then I started seeing these "Ready to Serve!" packs and I thought I'd give them a try.

When I go shopping I don't go without a list and I always think ahead to see if this would work in a meal I have planned for the week. Of course, rice goes with almost everything! The number one thing we have with rice is a beef or chicken stir-fry. Both hubby and daughter love Chinese cuisine. So that's what I used the rice for. Oh and they have both a white and brown rice; there are also other varieties and they vary by store.

So I got to cooking and love that when I was doing with the stir-fry the rice was ready. All I had to do was add water, a little butter and seasoning for a little extra flavor and then pour the rice into a dish and it's ready to serve. This week I split each container to serve along side our tacos! Yummy.

Cost: Very Affordable: $0.01 - $3

Preparation: Easy Peasy
