 Place rice, water and salt in a saucepan. Bring liquid to a boil over
 medium heat. Cover and simmer over low heat until the rice is as tender as
 you like it, about 18 minutes. If there is any leftover liquid in the pot,
 drain the rice in a strainer. Remove half of the rice for another day. To
 remaining rice, stir in butter and cheese and/or ham; adjust seasoning.
