  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
