My boys have been sick with the flu since Saturday. Temperatures have been as high as 104.5 degrees with my younges and a steady 103 for 24 hours, for my oldest. It was bad. Thank the good Lord, the fevers are gone. With their passing they left coughs, aches, sore throats and snuffy/runny noses. Even so, I am glad. I'll take those any day in the place of frightful fevers.
Back to the rice. Hubby bought a rotisserie chicken yesterday, since I have been feeling bad myself and oh so tired, but nobody felt like eating it. I decided to make chicken and rice with it. It couldn't be easier! Take the meat off the bones and throw them, and the skin, in a pot, cover with water and Ta Da...easy chicken broth. The next time you buy a whole cooked chicken...save the skin and bones to make a big pot of chicken and rice. Enjoy! <3 and hUgs!
