Super-Instant Rice

April 28, 2022


I am not the world’s best cook. (Surprise surprise) However, I do have some hacks that are keeping me alive another day. For one reason or another, Lloyd and I have not had dinner together for several nights. I’ve had some Mississippi pot roast in the fridge for forever, and have been hacking away at it – usually with a piece of bread and some sort of vegetable. The past few nights, though?

Ready Rice and frozen broccoli with the meat. Zap it in the microwave and hit it with some soy sauce, it’s like a really bad beef and broccoli dish! Ready Rice is like astronaut food. It’s already cooked and in the pouch. You can nuke the bag for 90 seconds in the microwave (after venting the bag) and it’s ready to go. They have lots of flavors, too. It’s not great rice, but hey – it’s done.

    I hardly ever cook, even microwave-rice-bag kind of cooking.

    I’m hungry though. I think I’ll get some carryout. Mmm…
