I grew up listening to Grandma Ligia saying it was a sin to throw the food.Over and over, as in a litany, she told us we had to eat everything, because there were many people in the World who did not have a piece of bread to put in their mouth.My grandmother was the queen of leftover recycling. When there was leftover rice, she made a savory rice pudding or these rice fritters, which were my favorites.
