soaking my bandanna while I stir

Successfully prepared the meal, which was: a 14 lb turkey, bread dressing, green beans, cornbread, gravy, cranberry sauce. Generally a success, with the following exceptions:

  1. Meat thermometer didn’t go in the right place, registered finished temperature too soon. Had to wing it by time.
  2. When your circuit breaker trips while the rice machine is making rice, it doesn’t recover. Despite having COMPUTAR MACHEIN in it that knows exactly when the rice is done, if it loses its place it refuses to continue when power is restored. Since the rice is now in an indeterminate state you’ve just ruined one load of rice. Suck.
  3. Wine spill just as we were starting.
  4. Forgot to serve cranberry sauce. Will eat it tomorrow.

All the food turned out perfectly, though. And I only yelled “FUCK!” once (#2).

Also, blueberry pie from local bakery (Sunflour).

Since I modified my diet to avoid death, two servings is a lot, so I was able to enjoy the meal without the crazed gluttony problem. Cooked about the right amount of food, too, so leftovers but not waste. With the exception of the rice. FUCK!

Cooking exhausts me, but pleasantly. I like making everything from scratch.

  1. i learned the best method to making 1 cup of white rice this summer.
    Put the pot on the stove, turn the heat on all the way. Add 1 cup rice, add 1 1/3 cup water. Cover. Wait until Boiling, then reduce to lowest heat possible and set timer for 25 minutes exactly. Perfect rice every time. And I SUCK at cooking.

    1. Yeah, that’s good for white rice. For brown rice usually 2:1 water, 45 minutes.
      What can’t be used is rice that is in an indeterminate halfway state from a rice cooker that has rebooted. No way that’s gonna work.

    1. This was non recipe recipe. 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar. bring to boil. dump in 1 package cranberries. bring back up to boil, simmer 10 or so mins until cranberries pop. refrigerate.
      it’s so good there’s really no need for an actual recipe
      that icon kicks ass
