College Quickie: Rice

College tends to deplete a lot of things in life, such as time, food, money, food, sleep, food, brain power, and food. After a long day running between classes,  or working to pay for those classes, microwaved leftovers start to sound pretty good.  Extra rice always manages to land in our fridge, saved for the inevitable missed-dinner nights, and it happens to be my favorite dish to experiment with.  My list of rice variations rivals Forrest Gump’s shrimp list, and since it’s been “one of those weeks” where nothing else gets done, I decided to share…
