Story Behind this Recipe

My husband called to say that he didn't need dinner, but I had planned to make hamburgers. Since it was just me and the kids, I decided to make something simple. My 4 year old doesn't usually eat a lot of hamburgers, but she had seconds of this rice bowl! I guess it's easier to eat than hamburgers.
