Weekly Meal Plan #73

We are starting a new format for our Weekly Meal Plan posts. We will each take turns sharing something that was a highlight from our week, whether that is a new recipe, something that surprised us (good or bad), or something that we find helpful to point out.

My highlight this week was baking rice. I had never tried it before, and Katie had tried it several times from Good Cheap Eats by Jessica Fisher. I used the method for a Chipotle Lime Rice recipe I’m developing, and it was so easy! Also, the rice was amazingly fluffy. There is always something new to try!
