Some Rockin' Rice

I have discovered a new love and it's in the form of food.


Rosie echoes my sentiments -- this VeeTee rice is ahhhhhhmazing.

We absolutely love rice around here -- if you check out any of my recipes I've posted about before there are no shortage of dishes that include rice.  We usually use the rice cooker to make rice...but, not gonna lie, it takes for freaking ever.  But it's so good because it doesn't taste like instant rice either, so I deal with the 20+ minutes it takes to make a cup of white rice.


So I came across this rice (specifically this flavor) and oh my gosh YESSSS!! Instant-fast rice dish that tastes JUST like my rice cooker rice in 2 minutes!  I admit, I was skeptical at first, cause other instant rices seem to get mushy and icky in the microwave.  Not VeeTee rice.  This stuff is LEGIT.  It is so freaking fast and easy to make AND (best part!!) it tastes amazing.  Truly.





What's so awesome is that I can whip up a substantial dinner, like you see above, in less than 10 minutes.  We had air fried chicken, rice, cheese, and fruit (and salad for us adults) and start to finish it took me 10 minutes to make all of that!  I really love this rice SO MUCH.  It is the perfect side dish for all of our favorite Mooney meals (which mostly involve chicken, haha!) and usually two of the almost 10oz containers are plenty for our family of 5 for dinner.  And all of the rices are vegetarian and most are gluten free, for all of my dietary restriction buddies out there.  PLUS, you can stockpile this stuff and it's good on your pantry shelf for up to 12 months!!  WOOT!



Also, they have a TON of different flavor options (I'm so boring I just like the plain one! But Mike loves the fun flavored ones :) and you can mix-and-match flavors too to create your own six pack!  Best place to buy is through their website online and your rice gets delivered directly to your door.


Go order yourself some and let me know what you think!  Seriously, I am the biggest rice lover and this stuff takes the cake. It.is.so.good.  You won't be disappointed!  Promise!!

Wednesday Mumblings

I swear I start every post off lately with exclaiming how busy I've been!

But, thus is true -- so busy am I!

It seems that spring is in full swing and I am having busy flash-backs of my jam-packed snappin' fall all over again!  I don't think I have a free day in the next several weeks where I don't have a photo session (or sports practice!) scheduled.  INSANE!  But good, so so so good.

I had this adorable fam's pics today and then these twin's Fresh 48 NICU session...golly baby fever is now on overdrive! HAHA!

Speaking of spring, here's a gigantic photo dump of a bunch of springy pics from the past couple days that we've taken advantage of the warm weather and gotten outside for some fresh air and playtime!  I did take Patrick's 5 year pics today too but you'll have to wait until next week to see those :)




























Aren't they a hoot?!?!  Annie's serious faces just KILL ME.

Speaking of that little turtle...




She'll be 15 months old on Monday and ^^^ that is about the extent of her walking.  Ha!  Slow and steady just like her big sister.  I thought she'd be walking by 15 months but no dice.  So maybe 18?!?!  Rosie was right at 17 so I'm sure Annie is on the same track as her.  Little tiny turtles I have!  So darn cute though :)



Patrick has been super into "trying new things" lately and it's awesome because yay for that and yay for him liking like 95% of the new things he tried, including chili nachos and chicken nachos (not pictured) earlier this week!  Woot!  This kid is growing up!


Oh, and yes, we went to his kindergarten orientation on Tuesday night and I CANNOT BELIEVE HE IS STARTING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN A FEW MONTHS!  And he'll be five next week too and I just cannot freaking BELIEVE IT! GAHHHHH! Someone hold me.

I'll leave you with these candid bathroom getting ready to go to bed snaps I took the other night.  Gosh I love lifestyle pics SO SO SO much, especially when my kiddos are involved!  Biased, so biased, I know. Sorry. #notreally













Okay friends, that's all I've got for tonight...super late blog postin' a'happenin' while I wait for these snappies I took earlier to finish exporting.  exciting life, huh?!?  Anyways, I hope you all have a great rest of your week...got lots of sessions and then Patrick's birthday party on Saturday! EEEKKKK! and GORGEOUS weather forecast too which always puts me in a good mood.  Anyways, adios friends!!
