Can we say oops? I accidentally made 12 cups of rice tonight instead of 3. I was making vegetarian stuffed peppers (green peppers stuffed with rice mixed with spaghetti sauce, sauted mushrooms and onion). The kids were playing in the kitchen making lots of noise and I got distracted.
It was supposed to be 6 cups water and 3 cups rice in the medium pot. First I didn’t have enough rice. Then too much so I added more water but miscounted so I added more rice. Transfer now to bigger pot. Then my husband realized I (again) miscalculated so had to add still more water. In the end, I wound up with my biggest pot full to the brim with rice, 12 cups to be exact.
My husband has been wanting me to make bigger pots of rice, but this was too much. Needless to say, we’re going to have rice this week. Tonight was stuffed peppers. There’s still rice in sauce left over from that so we’ll have it tomorrow for lunch with shredded cheese and sour cream as usual. For dinner, I’ll get some tofu for stir fried rice. Then what? I’m open for suggestions, preferable vegetarian and simple.
