I busted out a batch of rainbow rice (recipe at the end of the post), and laid it all nice and ROYGBIV-style in a plastic storage container. Sigh. It won't stay all delectable and pretty for long.

I almost forgot.
Here's the method for making Rainbow Rice (originally from Pink and Green Mama):
5 lbs. of white rice
basic food coloring
Step 1: Pour 1/6 of the rice in a gallon plastic baggie.
Step 2: Pour about 8 or 9 drops of desired food coloring onto rice in baggie.
Step 3: Squirt about 3 pumps of hand sanitizer onto rice in baggie. (This sets the food coloring so it doesn't come off onto little hands.)
Step 4: Zip baggie closed. Mix food coloring, rice, and hand sanitizer all around until well coated and desired shade.
Step 5: Repeat steps 1 thru 4 for all colors in separate baggies, eyeballing and mixing any colors that you want.
Anyway, gotta run. We're meeting with Sarah's agent about a book deal.
