Just because it’s rice doesn’t mean it lasts longer than other food. Over time, cooked rice may grow bacteria that produces toxins, which can make you sick. So, make sure you cover, refrigerate and only keep for a day or two.
Don’t risk making your whānau sick. Eat any leftover food within two days. If in doubt, chuck it out.

If you ever entered a double glazed house, you noticed how warm and silent it is. Most people start looking for double glazing in April, when the cold is already here. With the increased demand, the time frame to complete the job and prices also increase. So why wait? Get it done now and be prepared for winter!
Of course, given the financial element of any home improvement project is always a concern, you begin to wonder how much energy-efficient windows like these cost. While the initial investment in double glazed windows is higher than the regular single-pane option, the amount you’ll save on your heating and cooling bills over the course of their lifetime will more than make them worth your while. That’s not considering the environmental benefit, either. Decreasing your energy consumption will help reduce your carbon footprint.
