  1. Thanks for sharing. I’m moving to London tomorrow, and will be cooking for myself again. I’ll definitely add rice to the list of my staple foods – it’ll probably help with my budget too, since it’s quite affordable. I love to make just plain rice or pasta, and add different kinds of veggies or cheeses, depending on the day.
