| Food and Drink Board|| How do you cook rice? - Coon on 1/19/15 at 6:42 pm|
I'm not asking how to cook rice, but how do you do it?
Personally I use the 2:1 ratio of water to rice, bring water to boil, put rice in and stir, let cook on low for 20 min. It's literally the easiest thing to cook. (This is how it says to do it on the bag fwiw).
Was discussing with some guy...

So my gas furnace hasn't been working consistantly for about a month (something with the igniter). The thing is, when it works, it heats like a champ so I know it's not the actual heater, just some sort of control or something minor.
