Rice is Nice When done up Twice

Sometimes you just know what to do with leftovers. It is like an idea just drifted into the kitchen and snagged your imagination. That is just what happened last evening. I have been so busy that stopping in a grocery store could not even be squeezed into the day. So when the hunger beast arrived, I went to the cupboard but the cupboard was bare as was the fridge and the pantry. The only thing I could find was leftover rice. So I mixed up a dressing of rice wine vinegar, olive oil, mustard, and maple syrup.Threw in some chopped up dried cranberries, almonds and pumpkin seeds I had on hand, Mixed it all together and whalla, I had a meal. Thankfully I still had lettuce in the garden that I kept protected from the frost. Needless to say, I went to bed full and happy.

I admit I measured nothing but here is an idea of what you could do for one cup cooked rice. Give it a taste but it should be good to go.

1/2 cup rice wine vinegar,
2TBS olive oil,
1/2 tsp dijon mustard,
2TBS maple syrup
