Must Have Monday

This week's Must Have Monday item is a rice cooker.

Seriously, why are you still making rice on the stove? And don't even think about making Minute Rice - that's cheater's rice right there!

We started our married life with a $15 cheap-o Salton model. It did the job as long as you didn't need to clean the whole bowl out to be fed - rice stuck like mad to the sides and was a beast to clean. My parents gifted us with this fancy new model for Christmas and we love it! It cooks and steams our rice like a dream.

Every time I pull out my rice cooker, I remember the Japanese roommate I had in Provo, Yoshiko. The girl did not speak a word of English or spend much time outside of her master suite. No kidding - she hardly ever stepped foot outside of her bedroom. But, I suppose there was really no need for her to leave... she apparently had all she needed within that 200 sq. feet of space - in one corner of her room she had her rice cooker set-up, along with bottles of soy sauce and ketchup. I bet this is her Must Have Monday item, too.

Ray had an interesting post about rice last week... check it out here.

Weird people stories make me happy.

I had never heard of these new fangled rice cookers until we got invited to a Mexican wedding and it was on the registry... now, as with all kitchen gadgets, I want one.
