Well I took the dog for a quick walk this morning. It was so beautiful. The humidity of the day hadn't hit yet. The air was warm but had the cool dampness of the morning. I am always amazed at what a beautiful world God created for us.
Thought I would share a family favorite - Tex Mex Rice. I found this recipe many years ago in a Kraft magazine. Kraft would sent out a free magazine to anyone who subscribed - and this was one that most of my family loves. Super easy. Works great on a week day night when you don't have a lot of time to cook. Really isn't the healthiest food ever, but it is way better than burgers from a fast food joint! We added a side salad with this one.
