I use both systems equally, depending on the recipe I'm reading. My scale has both at the click of a button. No need to re-learn anything. But if you ask me to do the conversion formulas, I will hide in the closet.

I am right behind you in the closet. Anything to do with numbers, and I run.

Only because they won't let me take off my shoes to help count...

I'm firmly in the fried rice camp. I always make too much on purpose. One Sunday morning at a camp with some Hawaiian friends, I won all the locals over by making fried rice for breakfast.

recipe, rice

Always making too much rice I recently bought a 25# bag of rice thinking I'll try to get more in my diet. I have a cheap rice cooker that can make about 3 cups at a time. I eat about a fist-sized portion for dinner and throw 2 cups away each time I make rice. Does anyone know a recipe for day old rice that can be reheated for a side or made into an entree? Thanks! 3 stars 1 reviews
