For all those folks out there that think rice is "boring" and "bland," try
jasmine rice. For quick and relatively easy, contrary to common belief, use
a short grain, like a sushi rice and make risotto. Toss in a couple of
packets of chicken broth and stir in butter when you are done. You can
flavor with anything!
DH and the kidlets love rice with pork and beans <g> Leftovers are great
for breakfast with a dab of butter and cinnamon and sugar.
