Anything but Bland

October 10, 2014

Feel Good Friday

When we think rice, we think plain, bland, and boring.  Like a side dish of white rice.

But in a land where there are 5 words for what we call "rice,"  it's obvious there's something more to it.  Menus offer dozens of rice dishes.  Temples are covered with rice offerings.  People wear rice on their forehead as a blessing. In Indonesia, rice is life.    

So we thought it was time to enter the belly of the beast...

Belly of the Beast

And we found ourselves admiring "rice" for hours on end...

Admiring Rice

 Leaving with no question in our mind that "rice" is ANYTHING but bland!

 So here's to seeing the beauty--not the bland--in everything, and feeling good...'cause after all it's Friday!
