    • Thank you for visiting Angie and good to virtually meet you. I popped over to your blog and had a great time reading what you do. Hope you will enjoy this treat and meal, so please let me know how it turned out for you.

  1. I’m so happy you shared this recipe. I’ve been looking on Pinterest for some rice recipes for the past few days. Lol.
    And I’m so happy you shared this with Sweet Tea & Friends this month dear friend.

  2. I didn’t realise there was a National day celebrating Spinach, I am totally up for that, absolutely love it!

    This looks absolutely divine but have to admit to cheating and cooking microwave rice! I really do need to go at making it properly and this is a fabulous recipe to try! Sim x
