First, sorry for my lack in posting over the last couple of days.  School has been crazy this week!

But anyway........
Are you one of those people who always makes way to much rice and ends up with a ton of leftovers?  No?  It's just me?  Well, luckily, I've found a way to use up the mass of leftover rice, and, from now on, I will make sure there is always leftover rice.  So if you aren't one of those leftover rice people, become one!  It will make your life so much more delicious! :)

Apple Spice Brown Rice

1 cup cooked brown rice
2 tablespoons almond butter (or other nut butter)
2 heaping tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
3 tablespoons almond milk
Scant 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Scant 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
Scant 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
About 1/2 of an apple, cubed

First, put the rice into a bowl and microwave it for about 30 seconds on high (this will make the other ingredients easier to stir in).  Now, add the almond butter, applesauce, two tablespoons of the almond milk, and the spices:
Time for some stirring action!  Next, microwave the fantastic smelling mixture on high for one minute, and then add the cubed apple and the remaining tablespoon of almond milk.
They say that pictures speak louder than words.  So, can you hear the bowl above?  If you listen really closer, you just might hear, "Make me, make me. I know you want to eat me, and I completely understand.  I would want to eat myself if I could."  Maybe pictures really do speak louder than words :)

The daily question: What's your favorite way to use up leftover rice?
You've just seen mine!

Mmm that looks delicious. For a while, I went through a phase where I'd eat brown rice pudding for breakfast :).

Wow, that's a clever way of turning leftover rice into your best breakfast. Incredibly amazing recipe.

And if you don't have rice, you could probably use a different grain - oats, bulgar, etc. I'm sure it would be great with most any grain! :)

Looks good! I love the idea of savory peanut butter. Well I'm currently eating an apple with peanutbutter which is probably my favorite way to eat it. Super simple, but the crunchyness of the apple and the creamyness of the peanutbutter just work so well together.
