Uncle Ben's Kitchen Kickoff Party

Uncle Ben's Kitchen Cookoff Party

I was selected to host an Uncle Ben's Kitchen Cookoff Party for friends and family. Mom Central sent me party supplies, and host gifts on behalf of Uncle Ben's to get my party cooking! I was so thrilled to be chosen to host this party. I love rice, and I love trying new recipes made with rice. I was sent Uncle Ben's Brown Rice varieties of: Uncle Ben's Boil-In-Bag Whole Grain Brown Rice, Uncle Ben's Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice, and Uncle Ben's Fast and Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice.

Rice is the perfect foundation for today's healthier eating! Rice is economical, and easy to prepare. Rice goes well with other healthy foods such as vegetables, meat, and fish for a delicious and nutritious meal. Just one serving of nearly all Uncle Ben's Whole Grain Rice varieties provide 100 percent of the daily whole grain recommendation.
