Instant Pot, Take One

Destiny

688 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.

      Is anyone besides me kind of entertained that there's a Duggar giving a gesture that's rude in other countries and they don't know it? With their holier than thou attitude, I'm chuckling over this.

      I find it really annoying that kids do this in every photo. It has become a meaningless gesture but when I was growing up, it was considered rude. Back when I first started teaching, my middle years kids would do the thumb and pinkie up for every photo. Not super appropriate in Catholic school photos but we couldn’t get it stopped.

      And of course, a Christian Nationalist home school curriculum: 

       

       

      What the fuck did I just read? This guy is nuts. He posted samples of the "essays" that are included in the curriculum, like this one: https://www.christendomcurriculum.com/blog/battle-paper-monument-desecration-and-the-fifth-commandment

      Can't wait to educate my children by making them read some racist windbag's retelling of an argument he got into on Facebook!

      Abbie, if someone has a mortgage, they’re not debt free BY DEFINITION.

      Wow.   Not only is this some serious mom shaming, but also a dangerous message.   We should be encouraging young moms -- all moms -- to ask for help if they need it, not reinforcing the notion that there's something wrong with them if they feel stressed,  or that they are a failure and "less than" if they aren't smiling joyfully 100 percent of the time.   Joy has a two year old and an infant that she's up at night with.  That's exhausting no matter who you are.  It sounds like Gideon was acting up and she needed a hand.  Why shouldn't she go to her family?  So she doesn't appear "entitled " or "privileged"?  She doesn't owe you,  me or anyone else an explanation.   Maybe people should stop throwing those words around; they're beginning to lose their meaning.   I hate their lifestyle and their beliefs, and there are plenty of things  to be critical of, but this is not one.   

      But this is center to their beliefs. Birth control is evil, have as many kids as possible, having more kids makes you a better Christian, can't send the kids to school, etc. So they're all supposed to have full quivers.  And Joy is already struggling with two kids. She can't handle the kids she has, and it's only going to get harder as they add more children until Gideon and Evelyn can act as sibling parents. 

      If the adults at the TTH want to help, that would be okay. But who's actually looking after the kids? If it's her younger sisters, who are minors that have no choice and should be in school; that's pretty sad. It's also taught to these girls/women that they should help mothers even if they don't want to. 

      If other people want to help a new mom, then they can. But if they don't want to help, they shouldn't have to help the mothers. 

      (Also no one said they had to smile all the time.)
