The Louisiana rice sold in groceries

I knew many of my Louisiana friends have consumed rice several times in a month. Rice can be easily found in almost groceries, even in the Supercenter such as Walmart.

Some well known culinary relate to rice are:

1. Gumbo
- A strong flavor of stew contains rice, vegetables (okra, bell peppers, onions and celery) and proteins (meat, fish or seafood)

2. Jambalaya
- It is rice with with slightly acid flavor, compose of rice, meats (sausages, smoked sausages or chicken) and three kind of chopped vegetables (bell peppers, onions and celery).


3. Dirty Rice
- It called “dirty rice,” because its color look like “dirty” due to cooking method in broth with proteins such as beef or chicken or other proteins.


Nutrition fact of Louisiana rice

USA produced 178.2 million cwt ( 9,979,200 ton) rice in 2017. Louisiana produce 27.6 million cwt (1,545,600 tons) in the same year.

  45. I didn't know that E.E. U.U. produce so many tons of rice during the year and, therefore, be one of the main exporting countries. As for the other exporting countries, none has surprised me, as Asia is the largest rice exporting continent in the world.
    In Spain, the area where more rice is grown and produced is the eastern and southern part, although it is also grown in the Extremadura region and in the Ebro Delta.
    Also the most popular Spanish dish and where rice is present is "La Paella", well known.

    Have a merry Christmas! with your family and loved ones and very Happy Year 2020!

  57. Querida Evi
    Peço ao Papai Noel que viaje em seu trenó
    por todos os recantos deste vasto mundo
    onde residem os amigos do meu coração
    levando-lhes a minha prenda numa bonita encomenda
    adornada com fios seda numa caixa de veludo
    o tesouro maior de minha vida
    o meu sincero e caloroso abraço
    e os meus mais sinceros votos
    de um natal feliz e muito abençoado
    Beijinhos e um afetuoso abraço
