So last night we were making dinner and I was going to make plain rice. I already had the 1 cup of rice in the pan when I thought “You know, I should really use one of the 10 Rice-A-Roni boxes we just bought…” so thought I would just wing it and combine the two, and just added a bit more butter to saute the rice/vermicelli bits in, and then just added an extra cup of water. And you know what? It was perfect!!! Regular Rice-A-Roni is always too salty and there never seems to be enough. But, with the addition of the extra rice and water, it was really yummy! Perfectly seasoned, plus you got a lot more!! I love it when spur of the moment things like that actually turn out!
