So, in between trick or treaters, I cut up the onions, brown the meat and pour in the secret sauce out of a jar that I brought at the grocery story. Nice. Everything is on schedule. Then I realize that I have about 20 spaghetti noodles. I counted them! Hmm. What to do? Well, being a great lover of rice, I decided to cook a pot of rice and serve the spaghetti over the 20 noodles and a pot full of rice. I know the Food Channel is looking for me as I speak!
Actually, it tasted really good! I learned a good lesson years ago from south Louisiana rice farmer Kevin Berken. While interviewing him for an article for Rice Farming magazine, I asked him what advice he would give the public regarding rice. Without hesitation, Kevin laughingly said, “I would tell everyone to cook a pot of rice every day, whether they eat it or not!” I’ve never forgotten that, and I still cook a lot of pots of rice. Thank goodness it paid off when I only had 20 spaghetti noodles to go with my delicious “homemade” recipe.
What’s in your skillet?????
