Bought a little bit of “forbidden” black rice from the health food market the other day.

Forbidden Black Rice

Back in the day, the rice was supposed to be reserved for royalty, taking black rice without permission could result in deathly consequences (glad I don’t live in those times).

Made of bowl of zhou (aka jook, congee) for The Cat.

Forbidden Black Rice Zhou

The Cat’s zhou is usually made with sweet rice (aka mochi or glutinous rice), the zhou made with the black rice was not as sticky as the zhou made with the sweet rice. She liked it anyway.

For me, I steamed a bowl,

added the rest of the bacon “jam”,

you’re probably know where I’m going with this …

Steamed Black Rice, Bacon "Jam", and a Fried Egg

Yup, added a fried egg for a one-bowl meal. I could’ve had a bit more bacon “jam”, but it was still very good. The socks came off, slowly. The socks would’ve come off quicker if there were more “jam”. Oh well, next time. 🙂

Hope everyone has a nice hoppy day tomorrow.

Enjoy. Eat well.
