One of my friends a year or more (probably more) ago decided before a big move that he didn't want to transport everything he owned, especially some of the foodstuffs. Eating up the contents of the pantry became one of the things on his checklist, and unfortunately for him that included a very large bag of rice.
I have two large bags of rice, some quinoa, cans of beans, dried beans, cake mixes, 3 bags of flour and over a month. I'd like to think I can use up a decent portion of our kitchen stuff and have things like: jouk, rice pudding, black beans and rice, paella, stir fry, pilaf, many Indian dishes, and the list goes on. Maybe I shouldn't try to make 2 5-10 pound bags of rice go away in a bit more than a month, though I really do love black beans and rice. And the rice pudding.
Suffice to say that I also plan to make tabbouleh (but not real tabbouleh) with the quinoa this weekend if I can make to the grocery store for more lemons, my current rallying cry.
In random thoughts (still to do with food), I really wanted to find a way to make pumpkin pie jelly beans, but the process is definitely not a make at home prospect. My imagination has images of the old-style raffle drums with the hand crank being used to turn the drum constantly as color and flavor and the sugar coating are being added. I would need a specially trained monkey running the drum, because most people wouldn't be willing or able to run it for the time needed (OK, to prevent animal abuse, an army of monkeys all taking turns rotating the drum).
