Tell me about, after almost 18 years I still cannot get used to all this cups, spoons, pounds. The 1 kilo is 1 kilo simple as that.

JAckie, honey, help me out with the 5 gallons thing.

Not here it isn't. One cup = 250mL; One litre is 1000mL; 4 cups = 1L Maybe your cups are a different size to our metric ones?

Hang on give me a bit of time ,Mean while check the rice package it will tell you how much cooked rice you get from the dry rice remember it will be more after you add the extras to make it into spanish rice.
Heres the break down 16 TBL makes 1 cup,4 cups make 1 quart,4 quarts make 1 gallon

Correction on tomatoes Tomatoes figure about a Tbl spoon or more x 450=28.125 cups I was thinking 8 TBL per cup but its 16 Tbl per cup.16 cups equals 1 gallon.So you have 1 gallon plus 12 cups which works out to 1 and 3/4s gallons so I would make 2 gallons to be safe.Any one that can correct my fractions please do.
