As my kids get older, it’s been harder and harder to get a wholesome breakfast cooked & served before everyone runs out the door. It’s hard enough to get the kiddos out of bed some mornings! Lately I’ve been batch-cooking breakfast for the week and it’s made such a difference in our busy household.
The slow cooker is definitely my best friend in this season of life. I can “set it & forget it,” as well as cook larger amounts of food at a time. It’s a huge benefit to the chef in the family!
I love cooking up a batch of Minute® Instant Jasmine Rice to use in all sorts of meals throughout the week. It’s like Minute Instant Rice, so it cooks up fluffy and delicious in no time. It’s the first instant aromatic rice available to add international flair to your at-home recipes.
