Creamy Rice Pudding

A week and a half ago, a few of us went out for Chinese with Grammy. She ordered her usual Tsing Tao beer, as the rest of us ordered way too much food. When it came time to pack everything up, the waiter asked if we wanted to take the untouched snowball of rice. Normally, I wouldn't want that for leftovers -- empty carbs and all. Grammy, however, said, "You should take it home and make rice pudding."

I'd never thought of that! Chinese restaurants be warned - I'm taking the rice from now on.
