Always Too Late!

I have a confession.

I like brown long grain rice.

I think about fixing it about an hour after I needed to fix it…. which does me no good and is even worse news for my family.

The rice sits.

I forget to get it made… and I must then substitute something else, which is generally NOT going to be as nutritious if it’s rice in the microwave!

My solution?

Finally get a rice cooker!

Yes, I know - excited about home appliances!

I did it!!  I’m excited to be  the owner of a rice cooker/vegetable steamer!

[ Yes, I realize it’s a big one, but let’s face it – someday I’m going to be fixing A LOT of food for 10 people! ]

Just think, for about 1/2 of a cup of rice – and around 100 calories, you can get about 30 grams of carbs, and about 5 grams of protein!!  Not to mention packed with vitamins, minerals and a low glycemic index for you health!  YUM!  Perfect to go with my steamed veggies!  Didn’t God do a great job of giving us so many whole foods to enjoy?

AND if you get a rice cooker…. you don’t have to sit it on the stove and babysit it for an hour or more!

Hope you have a great weekend!

“But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”

Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses,

so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 

1 Corinthians 12:9
