Reason to SMILE #235: COOKING DISASTERS (Might as well SMILE, right?)
I’m trying to hone my cooking skills. Normally, it takes me forever to prepare a meal. If the recipe calls for a preparation time of 30 minutes, it’s guaranteed to take me at least an hour – sometimes longer.
The evening of the solar eclipse, I decided I’d try to cut down my cooking time by doing two things at once. Cooking rice on the stovetop was one of those things. Now, I must tell you that I’ve always done well with cooking rice. It was one of the first things my mother taught me to cook and I’ve always been able to get it just right until…
I think I’ll stick with preparing one item at a time! I was so upset with myself until I looked into the pot after throwing out the burnt rice and discovered…
… an eclipse!! It has the diamond ring and everything! 😉
My cooking disaster turned into a SMILE and I couldn’t help but share it with my Facebook friends:
Yeah. God’s display in the heavens was so much more impressive, wasn’t it? <giggle, giggle> 😁
I usually do pretty well with rice, but I’ve done that before. Pretty good eye to capture the eclipse in the rice pot 😉
Yep. I usually do well, too. I now know, though, that I must pay attention or I’ll end up with another eclipse in the bottom of the pot! 😉 Which, by the way, is very difficult to clean. Sigh!
Soak and scrub, then repeat. And repeat. And… 😉
