Okay, I come from an Asian background, and having rice to me means having it plain, but that it is accompanying other types of foods (which may or may not have sauces of its own, which could be poured over the plain rice). I have been having it plain since .. since forever. And now, my boyfriend (who's definitely not of Asian background) is insisting that everytime we have rice he must dab it in either butter, or soy sauce (and icky soy too), or something..
How can I get him to understand that rice is to had plain? At least at my table.. he can have his own version of rice on his own!
