Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Sunday, August 02, 2021

A couple of weeks ago, I lamented that I’d overloaded myself by cooking too much rice for dinner. Somehow, I figured that four cups wouldn’t be too much to eat in a couple of days. I plead ignorance based on kitchen math, in that the 1:1.5 ratio of rice-to-water seemed easier to achieve when multiplied to reach whole numbers…

Turns out I needed close to two weeks to finally finish off the leftovers. Managed to clear out the big metal container from my fridge on Friday, and am now thankful for the freed-up space. As I said, lesson learned — a little bit of long-grain goes a long way.

Or maybe I didn’t learn my lesson. Apparently, six days is the upper limit for cooked-rice storage. So I was risking food poisoning, all for the sake of not wasting a few grains. Luckily, I didn’t detect any spoilage, or experience any ill effects. All the same, next time I’ll whip up my rice in small-batch quantities.
