Rice is an essential grain and an excellent addition to many meals such as stir fries, pilafs, jumbalaya, paellas, with vegetables, a side dish with meat, etc. The ways to pair rice with your meal are endless, and there are tons of different varieties.

Today, I salute rice as the cure to drying out BOTH my cell phone and my camera over the last 4 days. Both were drenched and are now functioning like new. Thanks to this link from Wiki-How, I knew to place both in a huge bowl of rice for an extended period of time to let the grains absorb all of the moisture.

Expect pictures to return to my posts within the day. Woohoo!
