I recently bought 50 pounds of rice. Yes, I said 50 pounds of rice. I think we might be eating lots of rice in the near future.
I know some of you may be thinking you bought 50 pounds of rice?!
But buying rice in bulk is my favorite way to buy it. We eat a lot of rice and since we don’t live close to any stores, I like to stock up. It is usually cheaper and rice lasts a long time. It is also easy to store, so I really don’t mind buying it in bulk.
And since I now I have good supply of rice, I thought I would share a rice recipe with you today.
We love fried rice. It is one of those meals that you can really change up by using different meats or vegetables in it. This recipe is a little different because it uses ground beef, which is not usually in fried rice, but it works well.
This is a good way to serve rice because it is an easy and inexpensive meal. My family loves it and the leftovers are great for lunch the next day.
