I love food. Any and all types. I never met a cuisine I didn’t like. My family plans vacations around restaurants. I even play in a Fantasy Top Chef league with my siblings.
And yet, there is one particular food item that I cannot live without. In fact, if I don’t consume it for more than a week, I start having major cravings. That item is . . . drumroll, please . . . rice.
Yep. Plain, white rice, preferably jasmine. Steamed is ideal. Fried is okay. Boiled is great. Accompanying side dishes even better.
This is why you will always find me at the fast-food Chinese place at the airport, especially after a conference or a vacation. At that point, I have usually gone for days without my rice fix, and I need it, bad. I suppose this is what happens when you grow up eating rice (or rice noodles) three times a day — breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The best part is? Last summer, I discovered my children are the exact same way!

Ooooh, Pintip, you put your finger on one of my favorite foods!
Warm rice with a sprinkle of sugar and cinnamon and a splash of milk, yummy!
Sticky rice, Jasmine rice, they are all so good. I love when something so simple makes people so happy. And gets passed down through the generations. Thank you for sharing this, Pintip! Hugs, xoxox.
