Basmati Pilaf with Olives and Two Cheeses

Here's a good use for leftover basmati rice: Take about 2 cups, chop up a 1/4 cup of olives, and about 1/4 total of whatever fancy cheeses you have laying around. I used a little sample of chevre au lait I bought at Whole Foods (from there "ends that we would've thrown away anyway" basket), and some homemade paneer. Yellow ones probably won't work as well. The rice itself already had turneric, curry nutmeg and dried cranberries in it.

It tastes good. Funny thing though, but it smells like Spaghetti-O's.
