Gettin' the habit/heating up rice
Okay, I've been doing batch cooking (2x per week) for the last three weeks, and this Sunday I did a whole week's worth of cooking - so I'm at one month! It is *totally* influencing my grocery list for July and nightly schedule...truely amazing how such a little thing can make such a big difference!
I only have one question for now though...how do you heat rice up in the oven without it getting "grainy"? It heats up beautifully in the microwave (I did it all the time at my parent's house), but I don't have a microwave, and last time I made a rice dish for the freezer and heated it up, the rice was kind of "grainy" in texture, if you know what I mean.
Any ideas? Or should I just add the uncooked rice when I put it in the oven after thawing? (It does cook rather well that way...)
