It got mixed reactions. It was a pre-packed mix that had brown rice in it. You add a seasoning packet and let it cook. Let’s just say I don’t have a good track record with brown rice. I’m very happy that I still have it in my system. Chewier than I thought. My hubby really liked it. The 6 year old did superb with it. Apparently someone had told her about it just the other day at school? I find that hard to believe, but whatever. The 3 year old gave it a good spit but finally chewed up one bite. She looked very thankful that she didn’t have to eat any more of it. But seriously.. we don’t make them eat things that make them gag.
We tried another trick of course giving it to them along with veggies while the steak was still on the grill. Veggies first. It worked brilliantly. At least for the veggie part.
We’ll have to try it again some time. Maybe on it’s own without the rice next time.
