Cooking Rice

Everyone is good at something. That thing for me is NOT cooking. 

I have never been able to successfully cook rice which has bothered me for a long time; so my mom walked me through it the other day.

1.  Measure rice and water. Put in pot.
I can handle that.

2. Bring to a boil
Clearly I couldn't handle that quite as well. Overflow!

I also made veggies and chicken.... pretty big accomplishment.
They did not burn.
*something I wish I would have remembered - mushrooms don't take as long to cook as carrots*
Mushroom mush.

3. Get mother to take rice off heat...
I was watching Modern Family... whoops!

That's better than usual! No black pieces.
4. Let pot rinse for a long time. Not my fault rice sticks to everything.

5. Mix all that crap together. Add soya sauce. If you're more
skilled then me add stuff that skilled cooks add.

That's about as far as my cooking skills go.
I typically live in a world of grilled cheese sandwiches and chicken fingers.
I can make a mean stir fry; but that's really my only talent.
Anyone have any easy student friendly recipes for me?

  1. Good job, lady!

    Last year I hard-boil eggs for the first time, and felt very accomplished.

    The little successes in life, right?
