Very clever. Seven of these things I'd eat in a heartbeat. The other three are useful...well...uses!


Best Wishes Galen.

Great list. I'd add risotto, one of my favs. And don't let them fool you into thinking you have to stand and stir constantly.
Interesting, creative blog. Found you through Helen Ginger and Conda's blogs.

Hurrah for RIce Krispie treats! Always one of the biggest hits at any school bake sale.

Wish I'd known that Rest - Ice - Compression - Elevation thing a couple of months ago!

Rice is good with everything. Love it with ribs and buried in BBQ sauce.

Galen - Hope the colored rice in a mosaic isn't one of the things you'd eat! I made myself hungry for jambalaya.

Kathy - Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. You're welcome here any time. I've never made risotto because of the stir thing. That's good to know. Thanks.

Elspeth - Oh yeah!

Helen - RICE always helps. Been there.

Terry - I LOVE bbq ribs - one of my faves.

Uh-oh! Did you sprain something? I remember that saying from back in my massage therapy school days. Oh, those wonderful evenings filled with massage exchange...

Jumbalayah is awesome, too. :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Arlee - How could I have forgotten arroz con pollo? I love it. Also paella. Maybe I need a second rice list sometime.

Kimberly - I think I've sprained everything it's possible to sprain. I'm good to go right now - knock on wood. I could use a good massage, though :)

Now you've made me hungry for rice pudding.

Marisa Birns said...

Oh rice pudding! My mother used to make it for me whenever I was sick and had to stay home from school.

Now about the belief that I sometimes feigned illness...

I remember reading in a magazine about using rice bran as a facial scrub.

Carol Kilgore said...

My grandmother used to make rice pudding, and bread pudding, too. I've never heard of using rice bran as a facial scrub, but I don't know why it wouldn't work.

No sushi?

Still, a great list.

Laura Eno said...

Hmm...I think I'll go make broccoli and rice right now! Thanks for the list!

Conda V. Douglas said...

Great list and it's been years since I made Rice Krispie treats so easy and yummy...hmm, hungry now.

Carol Kilgore said...

Cassandra - I'm not a fan of California rolls, much less sushi. Sorry.

Laura - Hope you enjoyed your casserole.

Conda - Snap, Krackle, & Pop!
