Prepare: I love rice

Here's a quickie..

I love rice. Right now, the rice cooker has two and a half cups of Jasmine done and ready to eat. I am going to have two big scoops with some left over chicken stew thing on top.

I can live off rice and just something simple to top it off. You can serve rice with:

- A can of chunky soup over a big plate of it. Serves 2-4.
- A can of creamed soup.
- A can of tuna fish and some lemon or garlic salt.
- With a simple boullion over it. Get some cubes now.
- With any meat dish and make it go further.
- With steamed vegatables.
- With just seasoning, butter or anything.
- With the good old standby, beans.

Rice takes one plain old can of something and fills it out to be a real meal.

I make rice in a rice cooker. It's my second one and it runs on very little electricity. You can make rice in a pot with boiled water and a good fitting lid in about twenty minutes.

Instant rice is handy, but I like to buy 25 and 50 pound bags of rice and store them. They last for years and are always handy.

Rice is eaten around the world, but its still relatively cheap. I like to buy it at the warehouse store but also at the Asian market.

Get some rice today. A fifty pound bag has over 400 servings. That's a year.

I totally agree. Obviously the value of wheat for storage and flour for cooking is clear. But rice is so often overlooked or undervalued by preppers. I can turn rice into a meal with a tin can and a little water on the road in 20 minutes. Wheat on the other hand is problematic on the road and even when full kitchen facilities are available to you. I store wheat and I can use wheat but rice is so much easier to utilize in a SHTF situation.

We used to use left over rice like cereal. put some in a bowl with sugar, a dash of cinnamon and milk.
