    Omg Rice

    I think I've been the victim of a practical joke.

    A friend of mine shops at costco a lot and he said to get their big bag of rice -- it's pretty cheap, really good, and I do sorta feel good about getting the larger size and cutting down on the amount of packaging places use.

    So I got one, and my brain didn't kick in until I got home:

    WTF am I gonna do with 50lbs of rice? Besides catch a shark and make sushi the size of a buick? How on Earth am I going to keep it fresh?

    PS: It's my day to have food issues. I just got a bag of chips with like three chips in it. The bag says no worries, it's not sold by volume. It's sold by weight.

    No.
    It's sold by THIEVES.

    rice pudding, rice sandwiches, fried rice, rice salad....

    Seriously cook it up, and hand it all out at the last rest stop of the MS150.

    Rice stays good for a long freaking time. I ran into a bag of rice that was buried in my pantry with an expiration date of 2001 but still looked good. This was in 2006. I cooked it up and it was just plain tasty. Nothing wrong with it at all.

    Rice is a good filler for all kinds of food. It's a cheap way to add volume and carbs to your meal. Make a pot of chicken soup enough for 10 servings. Add rice. Voila! 20 servings! Add it to soft tacos. You'll get more tacos out of it while still getting full.

    Serve it with corn and chopped bell peppers in it as a side dish. There's a ton of side dish potential for rice.

    You can get through 50 pounds of rice pretty quickly if you just use it.

    If you're not going to use all 50 lbs right away (!!), you can easily store in it containers, preferable airtight ones. Before you close your containers, put a few bay leaves in them - for some reason this will serve to keep whatever little rice critters (bugs? weavils? beats me!) there are from developing.

    That 50 pound bag of rice would last less than 2 months in my house.

    brother put it in a punching bag to make it nice and heavy. Let's just say the moisture that got to it caused bad things to happen.

    Just imagine that scene in "Forest Gump" where Forest was sitting on the bus with Bubba and Bubba was going on adn on and on about different ways to make shrimp. Then replace "shrimp" with "rice" and you're all set.

    A couple of years ago I moved into an apartment with my much younger brother who had never lived out of the house before. Step 1 - he goes and gets a Costco membership. Step 2 - he buys, among other things, a 50 pound bag of rice. I have gone through 2 13 month leases and am 5 months into a 7 month lease since then. I just finished the bag of rice a few days ago.... It lasted waaaaay longer than he did as my roommate.

    Have to admit - there were times it was nice have around. Btw - it lasted just fine without spoiling at all.

    Advice taken! Found two 5-galllon sealable plastic buckets at Home Depot for cheap, washed them and dried them out really well, and now they're sitting happily in there. I'll go tomorrow and grab some big bay leaves.
    Another thing I heard was good was to drop dry ice at the bottom of the bucket, let it evaporate into CO2 (heavier than air and not breathable by buggies), and then seal the top.

    Get a rice cooker and eat it. You'll never go back to french fries after you see how great you feel on a rice diet.
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas
