I have so much fun with Halloween. My mom was always a big fan, and it’s totally rubbed off. The decorations are up, the kids are already wearing their Halloween shirts, and we are ready.
So, how appropriate is it that during this month, I’m participating in #FreakyFruitsFriday?
It’s strawberry season here! The kids and I spent yesterday morning at one of our favorite local farms picking a whole flat of gorgeous berries – so now we’re making everything strawberry.
Do you want to take bets on how many things I can stick strawberries in over the next few days?
I think pretty much every food blogger (and Chipotle fan) has already made this. Why did it take me so long? I’m super lazy about side dishes.
And, I ran across a version that used the rice cooker. Because, if we’re being honest, I suck at cooking rice any other way. This came out perfectly, though, and will definitely be in the regular rotation going forward!
Cilantro Lime Rice
(from Shari Blogs)
1 cup long-grain white rice
2 cups water
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. canola oil, divided
Juice of 1/2 a lime
3 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
In a rice cooker, combine the rice, water, salt and 1 tsp. of canola oil. Cook on the white rice cycle.
When done, stir in remaining canola oil, lime juice and cilantro. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
