And apparently the rice in Mexican restaurants isn't safe either. Every single recipe I have found for Mexican rice has listed large quantities of chicken broth. Though some research indicated that most restaurants actually use oil and not lard for their beans. Definitely need to start asking.
MAJOR drat on the rice!!
P.S. Stairmaster has a new model out, that actually has a rotation of stairs. It KILLS. 4 minutes made me acutely aware of the upper portion of my lungs, which is not a usual thing to be aware of. But then, when do you ever actually spend 4 minutes non-stop powering up stairs? Well, the eventual goal is 8 minutes w/ a heart rate under 200. And by eventual I mean after my third full marathon.
