I’m almost to the halfway point on the To-Be-Named Stole:
This photo was taken yesterday, so it’s a bit further along than it appears here. But yesterday was nice and sunny and today is dark and gloomy, so you get an old photo.
Okay, this has nothing to do with anything, but it is the epitome of awesome . . .
Have you ever heard of the Fasta Pasta cooker?
The link takes you to the thing on Amazon.com. I bought one in January 2009 and I use it all the time. It’s a microwave pasta cooker and if you are making just a couple of servings of pasta it is the greatest thing in the world. It beats boiling several quarts of water and then having to clean the pot. It’s made out of heavy plastic and is much easier to clean than a big ol’ pot.
If you go to the Fasta Pasta website, you will find a page with pdfs of cooking charts — times for all sorts of different things you can cook in it. It never occurred to me to visit the website until this past weekend and I found the veggies and rice cooking chart. It hadn’t occurred to me that I could cook rice and veggies in this.
I sound like an infomercial, don’t I?
