So. Yesterday's dinner was crock pot garlic chicken and rice. Only one picky eater boycotted.
However, I wanted to clear out the fridge leftovers (and freezer leftovers), but didn't have enough leftovers for a full meal.
So, I sauteed an orange pepper and a big onion in olive oil til they both were soft and the onion was translucent. Then I threw in all the leftover chicken rice and heated it through. Once it was all steaming nicely, I added about a cup of thawed homemade tomato sauce (some of the last from last tomato season).
I told the kids it was "Confetti Rice" because of all the pretty colors. It was a big hit with all but the one picky eater (and she's still on the fence).
We're gonna call this one a win.
