Greek Chicken and Rice Bowl Recipe

I received the Uncle Ben’s Flavor infused rice from Influenster for testing purposes but all opinions and recipes are my own. As soon as I received the Chicken and Herbs flavored rice, I knew I had to make a Mediterranean bowl.  I have been making my chicken this way for quiet awhile. The Greek salad on the side is a welcoming fresh element and the homemade tatziki add a bit of creaminess to the dish. You can serve it alone or with pita bread wedges. Best of all you can cut you

I had $3 sushi and I loved it

I first tried Sushi Stop three years ago and I was very impressed with the cheap prices and fresh sushi. I decided to return but this time I tried 11 things on the menu! They have recently raised their prices from starting at only $2.95 per roll to $3.45 per roll. All of the sashimi dishes are $6.50. We started with 3 of the sashimi dished that included 4 pieces each. The yellowtail, salmon and albacore sashimi all had different sauces and were delicious.

I made a reservation for Sunday at 11 a.m. and hoped that the food would be good. When we arrived our server, Taylor, brought us our first mimosas, and gave us

In Spain they retail for less than $100.  When I searched for them in the United States, I was surprised to see how expensive they were. This Kate Spade bag retails for $298: I decided to make my own. I started by  looking for inexpensive woven bags and found these for only $1 and shipping on Wish. If you don’ want to wait for
