Like most families, we spend a lot of time in the kitchen. With breakfasts, lunches and dinners that have to be prepared, my kitchen definitely gets a workout. My husband is great and will pitch in where he can and I am thrilled that my boys are now at the age where they can help me more often too!
We typically work up a weekly menu that's posted in the pantry. It helps keep me on track during busy weeks and it's also a great way for my guys to be involved in meal planning. I think it's important that they start early. Maybe one day, I'll be able to kick back and let them do all the cooking for me. Ok...so a girl can dream, right?
Now my boys do have a couple of specialties that they help me prepare. They have even tried their hand at some recipe creations. Let's just say that a couple of them have been quite interesting. Spending time with me in the kitchen helps them in so many different ways. They learn to follow directions, learn measurements and try to practice patience! Plus, I love that they still want to spend time with me. Once they hit those teenage years, I'll be lucky to get them to hang out with me for more than 5 minutes!
The UNCLE BEN’S® Brand wants to bring your family back to the dinner table. UNCLE BEN’S® Ben’s Beginners™ Cooking Contest encourages parents to bring their kids into the kitchen to cook together. This national campaign is focused around getting parents to invite their kids into the kitchen to cook together and teach them how to make balanced meals including a protein, vegetable, and UNCLE BEN’S® Rice. Be sure to check out the #BensBeginners contest and get your family involved. It's a great way to get the kids in the kitchen plus you could win some big prizes if you are one of the winners...think $15,000!
We are huge fans of UNCLE BEN’S® products. In addition to tasting great, UNCLE BEN’S® has a wide variety of rice products for me to choose from. That makes meal planning so much easier. Whether you’re in a hurry and need to make Ready Rice® in a few minutes, or if you have more time to spend in the kitchen. UNCLE BEN’S® products are easy to cook and tastes delicious. I am a big believer that cooking isn’t just a skill, it’s a life lesson that teaches kids to eat better. My boys are learning early how to build a nutritious and balanced plate. Hopefully learning early will help them continue to make good choices as they get older.
Rice is a great first ingredient when planning your family’s meals for the week. When you begin meal planning around rice, you’ll end with a healthier meal with lean proteins and colorful vegetables that the whole family will enjoy.
