Do you have a rice cooker and actually use it!? If you do, great for you! I personally do not have one, but I also do not plan on buying one either. Mainly, because I have found an easy way to make rice just for well...two! I think it's super easy to make and only requires one pot! Alright let's get started to make...

    A pot works better.

    I use my rice steamer to steam vegetables. Sometimes I'll steam rice AND veggies at the same time, but that only works if the veggie is something that steams quickly, like spinach, and who makes rice with spinach? Wait... now I WANT rice with spinach. Hmm... I have some leftover mahi mahi from last night's dinner... hot damn, you just solved my "what's for dinner" problem. Go you!

    (P.S. Found you on Wine'd Down Wednesday)

    1. I never knew that a pot works better! Thanks for letting me know and now I'm glad I make it in a pot. Yea I have heard that they are good for steaming veggies. I may buy one just for that in the future. Spinach and rice does sound good! Whoo hoo!!! I'm glad I could help you figure out dinner for tonight :)
