our other new addition

… is a brand new 3.5-Cup Microcomputerized Rice Cooker. It will even bake bread! I’m thrilled beyond belief to welcome this multitasking small appliance onto my counter and look forward to many happy meals together. I’m hoping to soon have the smarts to set the timer and wake up to some congee (aka okayu, chok, juk, rice porridge) for breakfast.

I don’t have any photos of my own of this hard worker (actually I do, my camera is acting up and I don’t know where the card reader is, we still have boxes.. in Brooklyn) and I’ve been told that small appliance photos are not really exciting.

However, it’s what’s been cooking inside that counts. In that vein, I hope to start posting again about my cooking and food adventures. I also hope to work on trying to take photos of food that make it look at least half as appetizing as it tastes.

I leave you with two questions:

  1. What’s your favourite rice dish?
    Mine, without a doubt, is vegetarian (allowing for egg) dolsot bi bim bap. And guess what? Model ECJ-S35S will help me do it! (Since I have yet to cure my dolsot pots, this is a very good thing).

  2. What should I name this rice cooker? I don’t know why I want to name it but I do.

The kitten still needs his new name, but it’ll come. He’s definitely calming down and starting to feel more at home. He hopped onto the bed last night and the look on his face when he saw me there was priceless. He had no idea whether to bolt or where to go. I made the mistake of moving (trying to entice him to come cuddle) and he jumped off and went under the bed.

  1. Not really vegetarian at all, but my favorite way to eat rice is fried rice. Sometimes with ground beef, green onions, and a generous amount of curry powder; other times with ground beef or diced chicken, green onions, cabbage or bok choy cut small, and soy and oyster sauces; or with diced Chinese sausage, sliced egg omelet, and green onions. All seasoned with salt, of course, but never with pepper.

  2. My favorite way to eat rice is with Saag Paneer over it!

    Silly kitten!

  3. I actually really like plain steamed rice, although usually with Chinese food or sushi. I have found it is one of the most digestible things for me to eat. Yay! I used to like fried rice, but after switching to steamed I have found that fried can be a bit too salty and takes away the taste from the other foods.

    Names for a rice cooker? How about snowball or fluffy? I don’t know, I may just be silly! =)
