I don’t know about you, but it seems like every time that I make rice for my family, I always have leftovers. Sometimes lots of leftovers. A few too many times in the past I didn’t make enough rice to go along with a meal. So now I usually end up making way more rice then we actually need.
Fortunately, cooked rice is a great leftover to have on hand in the fridge because it can be remade into so many different types of dishes.
