Thai Rice Bowl RecipeAs soon as the calendar turned to September I started craving warm, comforting foods. Not that it’s anywhere near fall weather in the southeast, but if I turn down the air conditioner it helps me pretend? 🙂 This thai spice rice bowl is the ultimate comfort food and it’s such a great vegetarian option. This would also be delicious topped with some sautéed chicken or rotisserie chicken if you want some added protein. Highly recommend going all out with the garnishes — it adds so much amazing flavor!

    Ireland however is a totally different story 🙂 the days are already shorter (bit grey at 6am, not yet fully bright anymore) and the evenings are starting to draw in too – also – I wore a jumper (sweater) ALL DAY today. Autumn (Fall) is well and truly here so this dish is perfect for what we’re experiencing weather wise – it’ll be tried out this weekend so thank you for sharing!!
