OK, last week I tried quinoa, and it was alright. This week I tried something a little less intimidating - brown rice. I got the short grain variety, so it was kinda sticky. It was ok as a side dish with some chicken thighs I cooked up with onions and rosemary. It was GREAT tonight, a couple days later, when I used the leftover rice to stuff acorn squash. I combined it with walnuts and dried cranberries, stuffed it into some pre-cooked acorn squash (hooray for microwaves!) with some chicken broth to add some flavor and WOW! I will definately be making that again! SO - short grain rice will rear it's head again, I'm thinking of all kinds of other stuff I can, well, stuff!
