Rice is Nice

Eleanor: "I'm going to make teriyaki chicken for dinner but I don't want to because I know that the rice will be gross."

Me: "You're in a rice-funk. You've convinced yourself you will always mess up the rice and you won't make any good rice until you've moved past that."

Eleanor: "I know. I have no rice-confidence."

The rice was fine.

The best way to cook rice...I learned from a Columbian...

Take a bit of oil (1-2 TBSP) and place it in a large frying pan...place rice in the oil...heat the rice until it starts to brown like Vermicelli...Then pour in twice the amount of water as rice...Cover, place on low (3) and let it boil for a while. Check it every once in a while until it is dry on top, and you can just barely see the tops of the steam bubbles popping out of the steam bubble holes in the rice. Then leave covered, turn off the stove and let it sit there for another 5-10 minutes. It is always light and fluffy and delicious. :)
