So, you all know I went the Uncle Ben’s Event yesterday and I had a blast! I met Oh So Cynthia! Tip Junkie, Living Locurto, June Cleaver Nirvana, Two Monkeys A Washtub, Mommy’s Wishlist, and too many more to mention.
I was on a cooking “Team” with Tamona from Tamona’s Tips, Susan from Permanent Posies, and Wendy of T Girls Rock!
Here’s their pic again:
We were all invited by Mom Central to go to The Viking Cooking School in Uptown Dallas. Missy Lapine, The Sneaky Chef – Hiding Healthy Food in Kids’ Favorite Meals – was our “Teacher” for the day! She had to help us with ours! 🙂
Then we made BBQ Chicken Pizza With Uncle Ben’s Whole Grain White Rice Crust, and Tuna Tomato Melt Casserole – my personal favorite: the “melt” comes from the cheese we smothered it with after this pic was taken! Finally, we made Chocolate Rice Pudding with pureed cherries in it!
It was all very good, everything had the Uncle Ben’s Rice in it, I am not a big rice eater, but I enjoyed it! This is Whole Grain White Rice, all natural and low in fat – Lisa, who was the Uncle Ben’s Rep in attendance told us… “it has the taste and texture of white rice with the benefit of whole grains”. She also said it is available now, in the Dallas are at Kroger, and will be available across the country by the time school starts back in August, so be on the lookout for it, so you can try it! There are 6 plain and flavored varieties available and they are ready to eat in 10 minutes!
The sayings from the day were “Rice is back!” and “Rice is the new Black!” 🙂
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Triscuit and received the product necessary to facilitate my candid review. In addition, I received a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
