The variety of recipes being included come from many cultures, not just Portuguese and American, so I have made a change in the group name to reflect these. There are many countries represented here. I welcome all to share their family favorites and any background information to go with the recipes. Join us!

Brown rice contains a wide variety of essential nutrients, but it isn't a good idea to eat this rice every day since it can also contain arsenic. The arsenic is concentrated in the outer parts of brown rice and these outer layers are removed in white rice. Brown rice is often considered a healthier rice than white rice, but white rice may actually be the healthier choice.
White rice is a perfectly healthy food, especially when it is enriched with vitamins, which is commonly done in the 21st century. It is low in calories, low in fats, high in carbohydrates and supplies a good amount of protein.

He grew up in Hawaii where we lived for 15 years; Christmas and PBS just seem to go together. We used to have a get together at our church back in Hawaii after Christmas caroling. The pastor's wife would have a big ole pot of PBS waiting for us on our return to the church. Great memories!
