    The fiesta napkin in the photo is my favorite part!! I loved Spanish Rice when we were growing up. We’ll have it for Monday Mexican Night next week. Nice!

      Thanks, Amy! Shane bought the napkin for me shortly after I started this site because he knew I’d need variety in my photos. Nice, huh? I totally forgot about Spanish rice there for a while. How is that possible? It’s so good, isn’t it? Nice hearing from you!!
