Stuffed peppers, probably.

I'm not a fan of rice

That sounds soooo good. I haven't had them in a long time.

We love chicken, broccoli and rice casserole. Sometimes I also just make rice as a side.

Fried Rice

This is a very simple recipe that my Japanese roommate used to make in an electric skillet in our dorm room when I was in college. Fry bacon. Cut up green onion, separating the white and green parts. Remove bacon. Add white part of onion to bacon grease, and any meat or seafood you're using, and cook till almost done. Add chilled rice. Add a few dashes of soy sauce; stir to heat. Top with crumbled bacon and green onion. No bacon, just use oil. When my kids were real little, I only added the soy sauce after I took out their portions. This became a family favorite. I added lots of different vegetables, corn, peas, carrots, depending on what I had on hand. I also sometimes added an egg. It became a family favorite.
