My Spanish Chicken


Welcome to My Things 2 Do.  Today I made My Spanish Rice.

Tiffany and I both love eating several different things and Spanish rice is one of those things.  When looking at recipes for this dish nearly all of them contained sweet peas.  No matter how I try to hide them or barely put any in a recipe, Tiffany always picks those out. She just doesn’t like sweet peas.

So to solve this problem I substituted black eye-peas for the sweet peas and she loved it.
