It's rice week. My eyes are on the elephants. A couple of weeks ago I bought this twenty-five pound bag of rice on a whim after I saw it in the cart of a friend walking down the rice isle. I was always buying these puny little bags of rice and running out, mostly because I once cooked old rice and I payed for it. Rice does go bad. Not this time. Now I'm even measuring with my fingers when i cook it. Gone are the 2:1 days. Up to the knuckle or just below for 1 cup of dry rice -this tip from the same friend who sold me on the bag of rice.
Monday: Sweet Potato Blintzes. Already in the works so there's no looking back.
Tuesday: Curried Split Peas over rice.
Wednesday: Otsu My new recipe to try. Thank you, KM!
Thursday: Gnocchi. Rest night.
Friday: Shrimp Fried Rice. BA March 2013. If I can't get shrimp, I'll just use the sauce and substitute some veggies or chicken.
What about you?
