Breakfast Experiment

I HATE throwing away food. I can't stand the thought of the wasted money and it makes me feel like such an ungrateful slob. Last night I was preparing my lunch for work when I noticed a container of brown rice that has been in the fridge for over a week (I'm afraid to think how long it's really been there.) It smelled OK, so I realized it was now my job to eat it for breakfast. I cooked it on the stove with a bit of milk, brown sugar and vanilla and it was DELICIOUS! It might have been better if it was a little thicker, so I would recommend either using less milk or cooking it longer (I was running late for work.) Also, if you use soy milk, you might want to reduce the sugar, because it was a tad sweet for my taste

Experimental Breakfast
1 c. cooked brown rice
1 c. milk
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 dash Vanilla extract

Add all but rice in a small sauce pan on medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Add rice and slowly cook, stirring often util it is the temperature/consistency you like. Enjoy!
