Great, most of the traffic to this blog is from spam sites.  Whee.  Maybe I can get some more interest if I actually publish some content.

Speaking of SPAM, a good way to use up leftover steamed rice is to make this fried rice.

Ingredients per pint of cold leftover rice:
1/2 cup onion (and/or scallions), chopped
1 clove (or more) garlic, crushed
1/2 - 3/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 can SPAM in 1/2" cubes
1 egg
1 Tbs. butter
peanut oil (or another oil with a high smoke point)
soy sauce, salt & pepper, sesame seeds to taste

In a hot pan or wok heat up about 1 Tbs. oil.
Cook scrambled egg, chopping it into small bite sized bits in the pan & remove.
Lightly brown SPAM cubes & remove.
Add another 1 Tbs. oil. & sautee onion and garlic. 
Add cold rice to the onion and garlic, break up as best you can.  Cook for a minute or so to get a little brown on the rice.
Add 1/2 cup chicken broth and continue to cook, you may need more to make the rice soften up a bit.
Add soy sauce, salt & pepper to taste
Return SPAM and eggs to the rice, toss with the butter and some sesame seeds, and serve.

You can add peas, cooked cubed carrots, corn, bean sprouts, or whatever you like to your rice.  I tend to like it mostly teppanyaki style.  Sometimes I put in lap xhong sausage instead of SPAM or make it vegetarian without the meat.
