What’s up, you guys?! Mandy from Mandy’s Recipe Box here. Who is ready for Christmas time? Who is ready for the chaotic times ahead? Who is ready for the non-stop hustle and bustle? Not me. I am all about Christmas. It’s my favorite time of the year. BUT. I hate the crazy busy time it brings. I just want to sit on my comfy couch with my heated blanket, a book, and Diet Coke. All month long. Is that too much to ask? In between the running around from one school Christmas program to another and parties and shopping, I need easy meals and side dishes. This Yellow Rice is made from scratch and can be used in my Cheesy Rice and Chicken Casserole┬áif you don’t want to use or can’t find the packaged kind. Give it a try! It’s a great recipe to have on hand for an easy side dish.
