05:11 pm: I Know Better
I've been taking garbage out from the cleaning every other day or so, but I know better than to take garbage out and do the grocery shopping on the same day. I did it anyway and had to rest in the recliner with the heat and massage when I got back. I did buy some unusual things today -- I had some coupons and there were some sales, so I bought six kinds of potted chicken for a taste test. I'm thinking I might be able to use the rice cooker to make grains & a bit of protein that doesn't have all the sodium that the soups and frozen meals have. I've never liked potted chicken, but I only spent $5 to buy all six kinds and that should give me a good idea. I had a coupon for a brand that came only in a foil packet and I went ahead and bought it, although it would have to be really good for me to continue to buy it because I can't recycle the packets.

Have you tried quinoa? I'll bet you could prepare it in your rice cooker. It's very yummy and very healthy.

Yes, I have a lot of whole grains, including quinoa. That's one of the reasons I bought the fancy fuzzy logic rice cooker -- a pot full of water is really hard for me to carry safely between the sink & stove and once it's hot, it's dangerous. This way I put less water in the rice cooker and it all gets absorbed. I buy most of my whole grains here.

Is potted chicken the same thing as canned chicken?

Yeah, I was brought up to say "potted" which I think might be more UKan, but it's the same thing.
