Mexican Rice Recipe
We enjoy Mexican food on a weekly basis at my home.  This restaurant style Mexican rice is going to quickly become one of your favorite rice recipes!  It’s great with taco night, burritos or in a bowl with a spoon with your favorite salsa. I used the roasted corn from Trader Joe’s freezer section. I highly recommend it if you haven’t tried it yet. This roasted corn has become a staple in my freezer, I have used it for so many dinners lately. It’s so great in soups too! Especially Mexican style soups!

Meal Prep
Thrilled to share my Grilled Chicken Veggie Bowls with you today!  My husband and I decided we wanted to try the meal prep world by preparing a weeks worth of food before hand. These Grilled Chicken Veggie Bowls were soooo good and it was so convenient having them prepared and ready to eat. We chose to make 8 bowls worth of food. This equates to 4 days of meals for 2 people. This allowed us flexibility for the other days to have a different lunch.
