Vegetable herb rice is my  recipe of the day. This tasty side is made using leftover steamed rice along with a few simple additions you probably have on hand right now.

Bill was saying to me recently when I made an impromptu rice side to go with some Cuban  lechon asado pork I  made how much he  enjoyed it. That rice even  paired well with my pawpaw curry leftovers, giving it sort of a Jamaican flair.

But it made me realize how few of these type recipes I have posted. I’ll take a moment and a free day to get one up  now.

Perfect Side Dish for Fish

This one I am  making to go with another Easy Lemon Parmesan Baked Salmon which is  one of  my favorites for a quick go-to meal. I  had realized (much too late I am  afraid) that I forgot to defrost something for dinner, so grabbed salmon since I knew I could thaw that quick.

I have simply got to get my act together with this covid-19 thing. Before if I forgot I might simply just run out to eat since it was Friday anyway. But it is  also Friday the 13th and wouldn’t you know  it, four new virus cases popped within five miles of  me  so I want to lay low.

Be Prepared with Recipes

We are going  to  need  to keep quick ideas handy for these kind of situations so we can stay healthy.

And while you can use something like cold leftover rice from the Chinese restaurant in this, it’s probably not a good time. You can steam up  some  in your rice cooker and just let it  cool  down to room  temp and it will be  fine.
