Don't Neglect Your Rice!

I found rice that was still good in the back of my fridge. Better use it!

Here's the rice:
Yay, it's still edible!

One of the simplest solutions to the extra rice issue is usually delivered with it when you get Chinese food.

Add any of the sauces it comes with! Duck sauce, soy sauce, sweet and sour sauce, whatever you're given with it, use it! This is an easy piece to just toss in a lunch for tomorrow, or eat as a quick snack when you get home.

Generally, though, those sauces are a little harsh for my tastes. So, I present you with something my mom has made me for years!

It's just rice with milk and sugar added. A sweet treat!

Enjoy your rice! I know I will.

I Love Saving Money More Than I Hate Cooking

I hate cooking. One day, when I win the lottery, I will never cook again. One day I will be paying others to cook for me.

That's one day. Today I'm broke. Today I have sour cream, milk, and old grapes in my fridge. My pantry has more, thankfully, so I should be able to make it to payday. But looking at the old grapes got me thinking... there's a lot of leftovers in my life. A lot of food that just sits and goes bad, turns into garbage, ends up in the dump. What a waste! I could be using that food! So... in an attempt to straighten out my eating habits and money situation, I blog. I'm gonna figure out new ways to use these foods. I'm putting my garbage on the menu.

Also, I figure while I'm at it, I'll let everyone know all the practical, adult-y things I learn along the way, since 5 years of adulthood apparently isn't enough to get it all figured out.

OK Internet, I'm gonna go do something with those grapes and I'll let ya's know what I figured out!
