Hey there all of you out there in the land of cyber Hot D***a. I’m still in a bit of an odd mood today, but that’s not going to stop me from telling you about the power of rice. Up until last night I had never actually cooked rice before. I admit it, I was intimidated. All these people with their fancy rice cookers made me think that it must be really difficult to get rice right without one. On top of that, I’ve definitely cleaned a pot or two of someone else’s rice and had a terrible time getting the left over grains unstuck from the cooking surface.

With all that in mind, I’m thrilled to officially report to you that cooking rice is easy! You don’t need a rice cooker! I just followed the directions on the package and everything worked, all in less than 20 minutes I might add. I’m also excited to report that a half-cup of rice goes a long way. Quite a bit of bang for your buck with that rice stuff! Finally, the pot I used to prepare my rice washed effortlessly. No sticking here!

Incidentally, if you ever want to cook dinner with me, let me know. Especially if you’re a good cook, preferably female, and between the ages of 21 and 29. By the way, I had broccoli and a pork chop with my rice.
