We All Have to Eat

Yes, this is still a fashion blog. I'll tell you all about the outfit at the end of the post.

For quite some time now I have been looking for an excuse to blog the coolest thing I've discovered recently: this rice cooker. I shouldn't need an excuse; my love for you should be reason enough.

In the time it takes me to cook brown rice, I can simultaneously cook meat and/or vegetables in the stainless steel tray. 5 minutes of prep (after the forethought of thawing the chicken), 40 minutes of cooking, stir in spices, and ... voila! --we have dinner! I have NEVER had the rice burn, or even stick, although I see on Amazon's reviews that others have.

My husband assures me he could eat this nearly every night. Next up: using it outside in the summer, to keep the kitchen cool.

So why am I dressed up as Betty Crocker?

  • This is the silk skirt I bought for $1 last week. I can't wait to wear it with my silver t-shirt for holiday.

  • My taupe crew-neck t-shirt would have been boring without the necklace my sister made for me.

  • Still loving the wedges.

  • The apron is just the first one that I pulled out of the drawer in the church kitchen.
I cleaned up after coffee.

I consider appliances servants. My rice cooker Works For Me.

The rice cooker is a smart idea! The last time I made rice, I made it too late and the chicken was done and we had to wait 15 minutes for the rice.. Oops!

You should totally sell stuff on ebay! I was a little apprehensive at first, but once you get into it, it's fun!

I love aprons! My neighbor, who was Korean and ate rice multiple times per day, swore by her rice cooker, too. Thanks for sharing!

Cute apron. I love vintage aprons. I don't think we wear aprons nearly enough these days. I know I don't.

I keep coming back to this post. Aprons are interesting, and also practical. The problem is that they look awful with jeans. I like the idea of layering decorative aprons with skirts.

Functional aprons also interest me. Heavy leather at the waist supports pockets and protects the clothing of those who work at a table.

The food sounds lovely! You make me all homesick for home cooking. Though I made lasagna yesterday, a rarely complex dish for me.

Hope you're enjoying your summer!
