My ex husband used to make fun of my family because the only way we ate rice was with butter and salt and pepper. His family cooked rice with milk and sugar and even ate that at suppertime. I love rice pudding but not like that.
rice with butter and salt. I also like it with butter and cinnamon sugar (no milk), but I really love it with butter and salt. I also love macaroni with butter and Parmesan cheese, or, if there's no Parmesan, just salt.
When I was a struggling single mom/underpaid radio person, I used to eat macaroni and canned baked means mixed together, salted, or if I had some, topped with Parmesan. I figured I was getting a complete protein with the pasta and beans, and it was cheap. It's also really good, but most people think it's a weird and gross combination.
