Rice and Beans

I'd like to start preparing my meals for the workweek in a batch on Sundays, to be refrigerated and microwaved as needed. I'm looking for a specific rice and bean-based recipe (type(s) of bean, optimal ratio of rice to beans, cooking time) that's cheap and nutritionally complete. That is to say, I'd like to be able to eat this for about half of my meals in a week and remain healthy.

Can someone please explain why baby rice cereal goes sloppier rather than thicker over time?

I am currently feeding my baby rice cereal (just powdered rice) which I mix with a little hot water and breast milk into a sort of thick goop however I have noticed that if I leave it for around five or so minutes it begins to turn into a much runnier almost liquid consistency. I would have thought it would have got thicker over time. Could someone please explain why this happens?

What's the best way to keep food warm and moist for a party?

I'm making some chicken chipotle and Mexican rice for a party this Saturday. I'd like to prepare the food about an hour before people arrive, and I'm looking for the best way to keep everything warm without drying it out. (I don't have a proper chafing dish -- just a buffet set with uncovered aluminum pans and sternos underneath.)

How can I learn to like brown rice?

I have never liked the taste of brown rice, but I would like to try to develop a taste for it, since it is so good for you. Is there something that I can add to the rice to make it taste different (and possibly better?) Other suggestions for cooking or preparing the rice, besides the standard are appreciated.
