This lemon rice is awesome! The recipe is pretty darn easy, and but it feels gourmet. Don’t you just love recipes like that? Perfect for company. For some reason, I am not a huge fan of regular old white or brown rice. But give it some pizzazz, and I am lover.
PS I am posting from sunny Lake Powell! Hope you are all having a fun 4th of July week, too!
