I just got done sticking my hand down the toilet. Yes, you read right, the TOILET! I was toy hunting. Chase was taking a bubble bath and Sophie went in to go potty. Before I knew it I had a wet, naked 3 year old running through the living room crying his sister put a toy in the toilet. I went to investigate, but the toilet was full of bubbles. Someone had taken the cup I use to rinse shampoo out of kiddie hair and filled it with bubbles before emptying it in the potty. I didn't want to flush because who knows what could have been in there to cause future plumbing issues, so I had to bite the bullet and do the old one handed toilet swipe. Luckily for me there were no toys or other surprises in the toilet. I would like to kiss the person who invented anti-bacterial soap :)
Enough toilet talk. I would like to share an awesome rice recipe. If you enjoy the rice served at Mexican restaurants you will love this recipe. It's super simple to make and calls for less than 5 ingredients. It will perfectly compliment any taco-ish meal your heart desires. This recipe comes from a site I love to visit Your Home Based Mom. You should check it out. Enjoy :)
2 TBSP olive or vegetable oil
1 cup long grain white rice (uncooked)
2 cups chicken broth
1 small can tomato juice
salt and pepper
Heat oil in skillet. Add rice and stir frequently over medium high heat until lightly browned. Add chicken broth and tomato juice. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir thoroughly. Reduce heat to simmer and cover tightly with a lid. (I "stir" the mixture several times while it’s cooking by shaking/moving the skillet back and forth so that I don’t take the lid off.) Simmer/cook for about 20 minutes or until the liquid has been absorbed. Once the liquid has been absorbed, turn off the heat and leave mixture alone with the lid on for another 10-15 minutes.
