Ben’s Beginners Contest

Uncle Ben’s is the only brand of rice my mom will use. I remember going grocery shopping for her and I picked up another brand of rice. She nicely, but firmly told me that next time I go I need to make sure I get Uncle Ben’s! Now I know when she writes “rice” on her grocery list she really means “Uncle Ben’s rice”. She’s particular and I can’t blame her. Uncle Ben’s rice is the best.

We often have rice as part of our supper. It’s quick to make and also very affordable. It’s also very versatile and you can do so much with rice. If I’ve made a dish that has too much liquid, I will throw on a pot of rice and use it to soak up the liquid for a delicious meal. I love mixing white rice with my slow cooker chili especially! Another easy dinner side dish a can of cream of broccoli soap and some rice. Mix the two together and you have a tasty side for your meal.

In a couple weeks, I’ll be sharing a recipe I’m making from the Uncle Ben’s site. I haven’t quite decided on what to make yet. Maybe this Stuffed Peppers recipe? I have a few pinned so now just to narrow down my choices. They’ve got a good selection to choose from and it’s hard to pick just one!
