Our daughter has just four days left of second grade. Just four days until our house shifts from a busy school routine to lazy days in the pool, checking out our full book limit at the library and plenty of family movie nights staying up well past bedtime. The last thing I plan on doing when our summer of fun begins this week is spending hours in the kitchen. With Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions from Walmart I don’t have to, but that doesn’t mean my family will miss flavor at dinnertime. The resealable Flavor Infusions rice pouch with eight servings is letting me get creative without taking away from our family time. We’re celebrating the last day of second grade with a summer rice skillet recipe complimented by feta cheese, lime, pineapple, tomatoes and watermelon. Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions Chicken & Herb flavors with fresh fruit is a wonderful start to our summer of fun.
The start to our summer begins Thursday with a summer rice skillet dinner and then our daughters will wake up to a surprise road trip to California on their first day of summer break. My husband and I have struggled keeping this long weekend getaway a secret because our youngest daughter has asked to go to the beach everyday since our spring break road trip.

Our daughter is very excited for her last day of second grade this week and we can’t wait to surprise her with our first road trip of summer break. She has no idea an afternoon of swimming and the Chicken & Herb Summer Rice Skillet with Uncle Ben’s® Flavor Infusions for dinner will be followed with a visit to the beach and favorite parks. How will you start your summer?
