    Very good. Very easy. Made this with Cranberry-nut wild rice (TOH recipe) and some frozen crinkle carrots and the whole family raved about the meal! Great for a weeknight.

    I really enjoyed this meal. The ratio of mustard and honey was perfect and it wasn't too much of either. Just a really balanced sauce with lots of great flavor. I made this with a box of Uncle Ben's Long Grain Wild Rice (as suggested) and it paired up great. Very quick and easy, too!
