Instant Pot, Take One

Destiny

357 views

I'm making my first attempt to cook rice in my Instant Pot. I am completely incapable of making rice that isn't either mush or crunchy, no matter what I do. Here's what I have done so far:

1 c. wild rice

2 c. water

1tsp better than bullion veggie because it sounded good.

1tsp. butter

Put in pot and set to 25 min per https://www.platingsandpairings.com/cook-perfect-rice-instant-pot/.

Prayed Rufus' blessing on my endeavour.

Blogged about it on FJ. Updates to follow.

It feels like it should be delightful, so I look forward to the results. 

I'm going to try pork chops with wild rice in French onion soup mix in the pot later this week or next, assuming I don't fucking burn down my house with this attempt that is. I'm such a bad cook that it should be illegal.

Sounds yummy...for pork eaters.  How are you doing the chops?

However you do them sounds like a blog post for Feed Jinger.

I was going to brown them, then put them in the pot for the 25 min with the relevant rice and seasoning, and again pray to Rufus. Did I mention my incompetence?

Feed Jinger should be for competent cookery, not my pathetic attempts. 

For the record, I have Mac and cheese on the recipe list for myself that day. I HATE pork chops.

It is for everyone, and I know you don't want to discourage others from posting unless they are perfect, right?

@Destiny, I was terrified I was going to do something wrong and blow up my kitchen the first couple of times I used my Instant Pot. :scared-eek:

You perform magic with computers on a daily basis, so I am confident you'll be an Insta-pro in no time. 😸 

I love mine now, and I regret waiting so long to get one.

I should be able to cook. It’s just google and following directions, but I fuck it up every damn time.

You just successfully made rice so, you can no longer say that you fuck it up every time.

I believe in you, you can do this! :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Yay!  I had no doubt.

If you had to eat my cooking every day like I do? You would have! LOL.

      On the Briggs-Meyer Test I‘m an Entertainer. Which doesn‘t seem to suit me

      I’ve always suspected that Josh would prefer a smaller family.  Anna, however, has made no secret of the fact that she wants “as many as God sends”. I wonder if Josh might have drawn the line at four but then all the scandals came to light.  The joyous time after the birth of a healthy baby was spoilt for Anna when Josh’s past behaviour and then current Ashley Madison affair was discovered and publicised. I can understand Anna’s desire to have another baby after Meredith and after Josh’s return from “rehab”, she was cheated out of the joy of a new baby by Josh’s behaviour and had to be a single parent whilst he was reforming himself. Perhaps part of their “deal” is that Josh had to agree to more children in order for Anna to forgive him. She appears to be a good mother and homemaker and to genuinely love and want her children. I hope that at the very most they stop at eight rather than keep adding to their brood. Josh needs to find some business venture that he can throw himself into and be challenged and develop and grow. His past behaviour was atrocious. His future just seems so mundane and boring. He needs to find some dreams. 

      I think Anna is coping with her marriage by throwing herself into her identity as a mom rather than giving Josh attention.

      On this personality test I am a Mediator INFP- A/ INFP-T . 

      On the animal test I am a mole. At first I was like: What??? And then I realised I was sitting in the dark, in the corridor, on the floor, in the cold * and doing a online test instead of lying in bed with Mr. S.. I am totally a mole. But my eyesight is better. 

      * It's my favourite place for browsing through the Internet, our wifi is the best there, I can hear the hamster, I have a soft pillow to sit on and chocolate near me. I was too lazy to get me a blanket, it's pretty cold for the end of May.

      Your words are so much better than mine! Thank you. I didn’t want to sound like I thought child molestation itself isn’t as big a deal as infidelity. 

      I know exactly what you meant, don't worry.

      Without question, at 15, he needed help. Who wouldn't help a 15-year old boy in such a situation? Who would write off such a boy because they decided ahead of time that he was a "monster" and beyond help?

      I used to work with adolescents who had committed crimes. They were not in jail, not even in juvie. They were at a school where people tried to help them. These teens couldn't drive, vote, get a hotel room, rent an apartment, engage in a contract or buy a car because their brains weren't fully developed so they weren't allowed to do these things. In addition, the state didn't hold them fully responsible for the things they'd done. This would not have happened if they were ten years older. 

      When people talk about how Josh would have fared better if he'd gotten "good" therapy by a "licensed counselor", I am skeptical. I am not sure if "good" therapy exists for a teen with a sexual problem--unless he wants to change.  There was a portion of my school where boys with sexual problems were treated. The therapists were among the most qualified in the state.

      Even so, these therapists didn't have many tools in their toolbox. Basically, they encouraged the boys to try to change the subject of their fantasies. I can remember them encouraging the boys to imagine sex in a field of flowers. Basically, the kids were encouraged to find healthier things to get them aroused. It didn't really seem to work. At the time, I was thinking, "That's all you got?" There was no magic bullet that could make those kids want to engage in normal, healthy sexual activity.

      I was pretty much the same after both my kids were born. It took us 18 months to conceive our first kid, but only 3 months for kid #2. Thank heavens for birth control!

      My first was a surprise and #2 and #3 were both first cycle trying, so it seems my body REALLY wanted me to be fundie. Thank heavens for birth control indeed! And vasectomies. 

      I did get a slightly longer break before my cycle returned after #3. And by slightly longer, I mean she was 12 weeks old.
