mushy rice

April 25, 2009

my afternoon snacks included a samoa, or two…


and some sweetened dried mango.


i was hoping to make thai fried rice for dinner. the rice cooker i have is a baby-sized one that makes 2-3 servings, and i wanted to make enough to have some leftovers to freeze, so i decided to give it a try on the stove top.

…that didn’t really work out for me. it just turned into a big pot full of mush. luckily i like mushy rice… but man, i was really looking forward to thai fried rice! i need to remember to steal a bigger rice cooker next time i visit my parents!


i had some of the rice with some stir fried veggies for dinner. and munched on a couple more pieces of mango for dessert. so not as exciting! oh well, i think i’m going to attempt some kind of blended rice porridge for breakfast. i’ve never had rice porridge american style…so i’m kinda excited!

are u a stove top-er or a rice cooker-er?

    Sadly, I do not have a rice-cooker. I’m usually a stove toper rice-cooker, but I’ve been known to resort to the microwave rice-in-a-bag method every once in a while. Kashi makes some decent varieties.

    oh my goodness. I hate mushy rice! that’s why I don’t really like the short-grain rice, I prefer long, fluffy, “individualized” rice like basami or jasmine. But an american-style rice porridge? I’m so excited too to see what you come up with!

    i LOVE mushy rice! that’s cause i love jook. i love both stove top and rice cooker. when my mom makes stove top we have nodengjee! (sp?) so that’s the best part. your rice looks like risotto though!

    I miss my rice cooker! It seems that when I’m craving rice the most is always the time when I mess it up…do you find that?!
