Four Foods...yum!

#1. What is your favorite kind of juice to drink?
Crystal Light Fruit Punch. It's great now that it comes in the individual portable packs to-go!

#2. Pizza. What’s your favorite?
Regular Crust Vegetable, light on the cheese. Actaully, I just pick all the toppings off, so the heartier the veggie slection, the better!

#3. Mustard. Yellow, brown, depends.
Brown. Random FYI, mustard is commonly ussed as an emulsifier when cooking

#4. Share a side dish recipe that uses rice or pasta.

Spinach & Feta Rice

1 cup uncooked brown rice
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup water
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves
1/2 tsp (or to taste) salt
6 cups baby spinach leaves
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

In a medium-sized saucepan, bring rice, broth, and water to a boil. Stir, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook onion, mushrooms, and garlic over medium heat until onion is tender. Stir in lemon juice and oregano. Add to rice. Add spinach, cheese, and pepper to rice; toss lightly until spinach is wilted.

That recipe sounds great. What does the lemon juice do?

the lemon juice add a little zip in the background and helps prevents the rice from sticking together!
