We're on our way!! It has been one of the longest months of my life, but I'm pretty excited to spend this week with my Caleb & Eli in Tennessee. What a journey it will be! Wish us safe travels & luck!:)
Since it's grillin' season I thought I'd give you some wonderful grillin' menu items this week (and a cupcake recipe...what can I say?!)
This rice goes so well with grilled chicken or fish. Add in some watermelon and you've got yourself a wonderful summer meal!
Lime Cilantro Rice with Pineapple
Recipe from Our Best Bites
1 cup long grain rice

2 tablespoons real butter
juice from 1 lime
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, drained

In a large saucepan, combine the rice and water. Bring it to a boil over high heat and then reduce the heat, cover and allow to simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove from the heat and allow to stand for 5 minutes, still covered. Add the butter and stir until melted. Add the lime juice, pineapple and cilantro. Stir to combine & then add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
