What do you do with leftover rice?

Eat it cold?

Save it for another meal?

I would like to say we generally save it for another meal because I hate to waste anything so I will find a use for it all. Sadly, it is rare we have leftover rice because the husband and kiddo love it. 

I have learned to make only what we need so they don’t eat too much because they really don’t know when to stop. Kiddo never had rice pudding before.  This may not be like your typical slow low heat boil rice pudding. But rather, this is more like cereal than anything. My mom used to make this all the time when we had a little bit of leftover rice. It was always a nice treat.

The rice was just a little cool because it had been placed on the dinner table. But she would divide it up between our bowls, add a little milk, some sugar and cinnamon.

It was always delish.

Did your mom have something fun she did with leftovers? Feel free to share that with me! Love to hear about it.

  1. I try not to have leftovers. First off I am single and second-I never seem to eat them! If I had leftover rice would probably make chicken soup and make it chicken rice soup!

  2. I usually meal plan so we have just enough for dinner and my husband’s lunch, so there usually aren’t any leftovers. Leftover rice would be unheard of because my 11 year old daughter would eat it all day and night if I let her lol!

  3. I don’t think I’ve ever had leftover rice. I do remember my grandma making rice pudding though, and I remember that my grandfather loved it!
