Thanks,Sandra Jun 13, 2003

It's so true... the cliché, of course, deals with non-returnable bottles (bouteilles non-retournables... how were we supposed to find the ingredients, alors?)
But yes, I have often ripped apart the French cooking instructions, but really in many cases I am not missing much, because when I think to check them before tearing open the box, I find the French portion was indecipherable anyway. (of course, I would have done a much better job!)
Lesson: If cooking in French, you may add the rice at any step of the process you choose, because, being French, you know exactly how and when to do thisicon_wink.gif

PS When in Kingston, Ontario, be sure to enjoy the speciality: Turkey sandwich, or for francophones, Sandwish à la Turquie.icon_cool.gif
