Experiment #22: Rice May 18, 2008

Mom cooked a lot of rice on Wednesday night, so I decided to make rice balls:

I made these after I finished with the stuff I was making for some potluck/lab meeting. Since I forgot to soak the oats the night before, I just grabbed from the bag and mixed it with the rice and got a-rolling 😀 The oats made the rice crunchy!

The rice ball on the right was drizzled with coffee sauce, the one on the left with chocolate sauce–it was aweseome. I think grains in general taste good with everything.

Oh and if you want to know what I made for the lab potluck:

Vanilla pound cake with chocolate & coffee sace

The idea came from chow.com–my new favorite website. I baked the cakes a little longer so they’d be crunchier and suitable for sauce dipping~since the liquids would make the cake mushy anyway.

Yar~I thought they were quite good…and I would have taken the leftovers home with me…but I had to leave the potluck early and when I went back to collect my food, the room was empty and all the food had gone…somewhere. 😦 I hope they weren’t thrown out or anything…

Leftovers for mom!

She thought they were good 😀

I’ve never heard of coffee sauce — where do you find it or how do you make it? Looks good though! 🙂

Jenn & lindzakins921: there’s a recipe for coffee sauce here: http://www.chow.com/recipes/11350 ; the chocolate sauce is just substituting the coffee powder for cocoa 😀 My version doesn’t have butter, I just added cornstarch instead 🙂

Ooh I love rice balls—I like to just take a bunch of rice and squish it up in saran wrap, then voila—rice ball! But I’m intrigued—what’s coffee sauce?
