Lemon Rice

This week's Cook's Corner Challenge ingredient is- Rice!!  I really have come a long way when it comes to rice.   There was a time that I couldn't make it from scratch at all.   I conquered long grain rice by making an arancini recipe.   Some of the others still elude me, and I'm a big fan of the 90 second microwave rice pouches.    :)  

For this, I used Carolina long grain white rice.     I made zero changes to the recipe.    Rice can be touch and go with Jake, but this, he ate two helpings.  So did Tim.  It went so quickly, I didn't have time to take pictures.    Definitely going into the regular menu rotation, and I'm also going to try it with orange juice/zest and the Taste of Home Great Flavors Orange Pineapple Pepper
