Make Ahead Rice

To speed up the meal-making process of a recipe that calls for cooked rice, cook the rice the night before. Rice cookers can be anther good option because they can make a large amount of rice at a time. Not only would this speed up the cooking process, it would give you some leftovers! Or you could always stop at a Chinese restaurant and buy cooked rice.
