Saria, I bought basmati rice....will that work?

I totally thought I was getting white rice. Well, it is white rice, but you know what I mean. Yesterday was such a mess for me, it seems.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Basmati rice has a lot of flavor, which I wouldn't necessarily like in horchata, but you might try rinsing it and using it.
Basmati isn't really consumed in Latin America, so if you ever want to make a Latin American dish, it's not the best to use. Jasmine is my default rice. It's not exactly typical either, but it has a mild flavor that doesn't taste out of place and cooks up beautifully. I don't ever have to do anything to it, just use it as is.
Carolina rice is the standard rice for Latin American dishes. It's usually just labeled white rice though.

Hubby has been in a cooking mood. Yesterday was spare ribs and I made potato salad and today he's making a chicken sautee with a pan sauce and angel hair.

I'll probably just wait and pick up the correct rice, can't have too much rice.

NC.com is having SPAM meatloaf for dinner.
We're having leftover roast. I made sandwiches with it the other day and might just do that again because it was so good.

I haven't scallops in ages, those look so good.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

We had a dish that consisted of stuffing, chicken breast, broccoli, bacon, cheese, and ranch dressing. It was baked in foil and so yummy. Definitely not gourmet but everyone ate all of it up. It was goooood.

4 Ps. Pasta, peas, pancetta, and pecorino. Oh and a G. Garlic.



I goofed and forgot to save some water to toss everything with. So a little drier than I would liked but it still tastes good.
