The Highlight Of My Weekend Might Be A Rice Cooker
Really I think that might just sum it all up, but for the sake of I-don’t-know-what I’ll just elaborate a little.
Wait. I do know what.
It’s Pete’s sake.
Isn’t it always for Pete’s sake? How did he get to have all the sakes? What about John or Paul or Ringo? Why is it all Pete all the time?
Anyway, I’m getting a rice cooker. For $10. Off of Craigslist. And yes I realize I can buy one new from the Walmart for only $17, but it’s the principle of the matter. I’m saving the environment by buying a brand-new-barely-used rice cooker from Dave in Woodlawn.
Not to mention that I’m slightly put out with the Walmart right now. I don’t know what is going on with my local supercenter, but it is in a rapid decline. Yesterday I almost took pictures of the empty empty shelves, empty freezer cases, and sad empty produce bins. Except I could not figure out how to take a picture with Froggy and send it to myself. And also, does that cost extra money?
Yesterday was the second time (in two trips!) that I called 1-800-WALMART on my way home from the store. Do you know how hard it is to spell WALMART on a phone that has a QWERTY keyboard instead of a 9-button keypad? Especially when you’re angry and suffering from low blood sugar on account that it’s dinner time but you’ve been wandering a post-apocryphal Walmart trying to cobble together a meal instead of eating said meal?
It’s probably harder than making rice in a rice cooker.
Speaking of rice, here’s a question for you:
Do you wash your rice before cooking it, or do you just dump it on in?
I confess I’m a dumper. It never occurred to me to wash rice until I read about someone else doing it. Have I been missing something?
For Pete’s sake (or Ringo’s), someone clue me in.
