According to later updates from the Associated Press, BJ's Wholesale Club is holding off on imposing limits. Rice futures soared to an all-time high today; rice prices are up 70 percent. If you're inclined toward hoarding, now might be the time to join BJ's.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
