I work year-round and all seasons; and am on the move constantly. I have a flexible lunch schedule but I prefer to eat on the move because the district is 54 square miles and I cover a lot of ground on a daily basis. Currently I eat out just about every day because it's convenient and I need to get to my next building quickly (we're not timed but will be soon), but my husband and I are saving for a minivan so it's financial crunch time.

Can't we all just get along?

Can I successfully cook brown and white rice together? The plan is to use a steamer with a 50/50 mix of the 2 varieties. If so, could you suggest a methodology? I prefer the brown, but I have a partial bag of white that I don't want to throw away.
