RICE ROX MY WERLD! -Christine "Rice is the shit" O.
Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...
We have a headquarters, based in good ol' Oberlin Oh!. It's appropriately named "Rice Hall". It rocks because of its riceosity and its made-out-of-rocks-osity.
In other news, we have a guest writer, Christine "Rice is the shit" "Writes Urgent News" O., to tell us all an AWESOME STORY about RICE AT ITS AWESOMEST! YEAH GO RICE (our motto)!!
When I was in first grade my best friend Chelsie and I were playing in her room, and we found all these grains of rice on the floor (Rice, Yeah Rice!), and they were kind of big grains, like orzo, and we thought they looked like teeth. Then we decided we should put a bunch of them under our pillows that night and try and trick the tooth fairy into giving us like $5. That would be totally sweet right?! So, I went home and told my mom about my plan and she was like "Oh, see what happens." So I put like 8 or so grains of rice under my pillow when I went to bed. In the morning I looked under my pillow and there was a note there that said "You can't fool the tooth fairy." I guess I learned my lesson. I told my mom and she agreed with the tooth fairy that she just can't be tricked. But it wasn't the rice's fault. I still love rice.
One time I made some totally sweet rice. Man you should have seen it.
1 c RICE! (yeah, go rice!)
3 T sugar
1 T butter
1 t cinnamon
1 t vanilla extract
Put rice in a pot and cover with water until about 2 cm of water over rice. Bring water and rice to a boil, reduce to simmer and cover. Let cook for about 10 minutes. Don't touch it! I know you want to just pull the lid off and devour the sweet white grains inside, but trust me, it's better to wait. After your much watched timer goes off, take off the lid. The rice should be smooth on top with little steam holes in it. If it doesn't look quite cooked, put in a teensy bit of water and cover again. When the rice is done, stir in the sugar, cinnamon, butter, and extract. Then stir in cream to the creaminess you desire. Eat the sweet sweet goodness, and ENJOY.
