Something new and she actually liked it!

Tonight we tried Old El Paso Mexican Rice.  When I pulled it out of the pantry I thought I was going to be the only one eating it.  It was something new and my kids are usually picky. It was the easiest thing I have ever cooked.  You cut a one (1) inch opening in the top of the pack for venting, place it in the microwave and cook for 60 seconds.  When I pulled it out of the microwave my 16 year old daughter said, "boy that smells spice".  So I didn't think she would even try it .  But I was wrong.  She actually liked it and said it had good flavor.  Can you believe it, she liked it, something new!  My husband and I also liked it, my son wouldn't try it though.  Next time I am at the store I am going to see if they have other flavors.  You should try it!  

Easy cooking and a happy family, that's what I love!

  3. I'm glad your daughter liked the rice!! I used to be a super picky eater and probably wouldn't have tried it either when I was a kid.
