Easy Tomato Rice With Beef and Mushroom


Recently all my gal pals are making this tomato rice in the rice cooker that is circulating online. Out of curiosity, I made it for dinner a couple of weeks ago. It was super easy and quite delicious. I used 1 tomato with 1.5 cup of rice. Season the rice with salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook rice as directed on package but decrease amount of water slightly to account for the liquid in the tomato. If not, it is not a big deal. Finished rice will just be slightly more moist but delicious regardless. I usually don't add much salt and pepper initially, waiting until rice is cooked to do final tasting.

Lego Theme Room


As an auntie of Lego fans and mommy of a future Lego fan, I totally fell in adoration with this room. When Savvy Baby is ready for a big boy room, this gal will have so much fun decorating, with his help of course.  Thinking outside of the box, instead of a traditional side table, this designer used Husky tool chest (ONLY $109 each) as bedside table which will fit any car/plane themed room. When it is no longer needed, these can be recycle as tool chests in the garage.
This Lego themed car bedroom is not too difficult to achieve. It is cute without going over the top.  To further enhance the Lego theme, I would glue Lego pieces around picture frames for the wall and on the tables.  Or, use Lego :pieces to spell out a name or words on the wall. What is your dream theme room?
