It's a killer thread...lots of useful info....thanks Zhizara. I can smell the dreamy aromas just reading through it
Glad you like it. I didn't plan it at all, just looking for seasonings to use in long grain and wild rice, but the types of rice available are inspiring.

It definitely turned into an interesting thread.

Because the combination of flavors in this dish make it really good tasting, especially with a little sage, or thyme mixed in. Besides, it's how I was taught to make it. But my MIL would add the uncooked rice into a caserole dish, stir in the other ingredients, cover with foil, and bake it. I just do in in a pan on the stove top.

I like to mix stocks together sometimes, especially to make rice. Combos can be very tasty.

We all know you're strange. I mean, you hang out around here with people like me, BT, and a host of other really odd people like us. Of course, BT holds the record so far for being the craziest of our unique group. Why just yesterday, I saw a huge virtual snowball go sailing over my house. It must have been 40 foot wide. But he missed and it just landed harmlessly in a nearby gravel pit. Didn't he say that he put sardines on crepes or something?

And here I was thinking of all the other strange people here at DC and you popped into my mind. Pot calling the kettle black.

I suppose you will be sending virtual snowballs his way, but of course, you wouldn't miss.

Though BT and I are similar, there is a difference. He was born with it. It's a natural talent of his. I cultivate my strangeness. And yes, living here about as far north as I can get, I have more virtual snow with which to make virtual snowballs. In fact, I fired the first shot this year. I think that I missed too. But that's OK. I pack mine loosely so that they break apart in the air, a cluster snowball if you will, with a whole bunch of little snowballs raining down on the target. I don't need to be accurate. And I flavor my virtual snowball with vanilla, sugar, and nutmeg, or sometimes I use fruit syrups, that way, Bucky gets to make snow cones.
Wooould you like me to fire a couple in your direction, hmmmmm?

Bring 'em on. I've got some butterscotch syrup and a big bowl. Mmmmm.

I won't have any return fire, unless I can get a source for some mudbugs to send your way.
