… 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:
- 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).
- 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.
