I LOVE rice. Jasmine, Basmati, long-grain, short-grain, brown, black, red, purple (okay not red and purple, but you get the picture.) When I cook for family, I usually hear, "do we have to have rice at EVERY meal?' (answer: yes, of course!) My rice cooker is on the counter in the place that a microwave is not - I use it that often. However, I live alone, and I end up tossing out tons of leftover rice. Ya can't just make a half-cup of rice and have it be tasty!
I've made enough rice pudding to last me for ages. Incorporated it into a few casseroles for the freezer - my take on a chicken divan casserole, mexican casserole, etc.
I like to pride myself on being an inventive cook, but y'all here are so creative, I figure I might glean a few tips! Thanks in advance, CHers!
