Instant Pot, Take One

Destiny

573 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.

      I’ve watched quite a few videos over the past couple of days. I’m not a professional and do not know this family or this child.  However I do work with people with disabilities and have seen all kinds of brain damage and levels of autism.  From what I can see it appears Huxley has severe autism and mild brain damage as well.  When most people hear autism they think of aTemple Grandin, or the movie “Rainman”.  Severe autism is not “cool” or “fun and quirky “ it is heartbreaking.  Severe autism means the individual is nonverbal, and usually doesn’t communicate at all, by any means. They cannot express themselves and as a result often have severe outbursts.  I have seen refrigerators tipped over, have had co- workers have their noses and arms broken by clients.  I have had conversations with parents who have said “ I will never know if my child loves me” and one haunting time an adoptive parent of an adult say “ if I could go back in time I wouldn’t have adopted him, it’s my biggest regret”  I have watched adult siblings struggle with caring for their sibling after parents passed away, not actually knowing how to care for their sister and as a result were emotionally spent.  Severe autism is complicated, hard and draining for care takers.  It also is beautiful. One young man a care for has a smile that reaches your soul, another arranges all his things by color and it always makes me smile. Another doesn’t let the fact that he can’t communicate stop him from getting what he wants, and walks behind the snack counter at the movie theater to get his own popcorn.  I absolutely love my job, but I have seen how hard it is for families.  I don’t condone them giving him back, they should have researched more before they got him, they shouldn’t have had a baby after him. They did everything wrong, but they couldn’t give him the care he needs or deserved. Hopefully he is with a family that will love him even if he can’t show them the love back, hopefully he will get the right kind of therapy. I think he is better off.

      In one of her pre adoption updates she states that a neurologist in the US reviewed Huxley’s CT or MRI and told them that she didn’t recommend them proceeding with the adoption.

      In September 2019, this is what she was saying about their understanding of Huxley's health, pre- and post-adoption:

      Quote

      His special need was listed [in his adoption file] as brain damage and once we finally reviewed his file, it stated that he had a brain tumor...When we came home, we experienced a big surprise with inaccurate file information. Our son ended up having a stroke in utero, has level 3 autism, and sensory processing disorder. It took a lot of time to process and to readjust to his new diagnosis. We spent 10 months preparing for brain tumors and never once did I read about autism or stroke damage—it was a curve ball. 

      She also says that they worked with an adoption agency.

      Boob is probably OK with them stepping back a bit since 1) they likely haven’t left the show entirely, 2) there are a lot more mouths to feed that he has to support, and 3) since they promote and speak at Fort Rock, Austin isn’t going to ‘rebel’ against him anytime soon.

      I think Austin has no patients for the Duggar/TLC phony "reality".  While I don't think they formally left, they may not have wished to have their daughters death used for JB's profit, adding to that they are actually working and can't take time off for stupidity. I  think I saw on Joy's Insta that they've built another house. 

      I don't think the Dillard's not being on the show had anything to do with it, unless A&J are hanging with the Dillard's on the DL. 

      Or, it could be that all this filming was going on while Joy & Austin were deep in their grief and just couldn't deal with cameras, and who the hell could blame them. No matter the reason, I'm happy to see that they've chosen to keep their loss private, aside from announcing her death, mentioning a necklace & showing the photo of the 3 of them w/ Jesus holding Annabell. Unlike her parents who splashed Jubiliee's death everywhere. 

      I agree with all of this, but time and episodes will tell if that remains a fact.
