I totally burnt the rice last night.
I swear, I am the only person who consistently manages to burn rice. Consistently! And honestly, I do it in a matter seconds. One second, it’s boiling, and the next second, all of the water is gone and the rice is burning.
I am following the directions. I don’t understand!
Confession: I totally ate it anyway.
It kind of reminded me of burnt popcorn? I paired the burn rice with a Green Giant veggie pack and a generous sprinkle of nutritional yeast. This was my first time trying nutritional yeast! I liked it, but I wasn’t in love with it or anything the way other bloggers seem to be. I prefer my grated parmesan & romano.
Oh, and I didn’t just eat that burnt rice last night.
What can I say? I live on the edge. Burnt rice be damned.
I ate it for lunch again, too. In the exact same meal.
Mostly. Minus the nutritional yeast and plus a ripped-up piece of sliced mozzarella. (It was better.)
Breakfast was also eaten at work, as oh-so-many of my breakfasts have been lately. I need my mornings to calm down a little bit! I miss eating my breakfast in my favorite chair while watching the first few minutes of Regis and Kelly.
Like I said, I live on the edge.
Into the mix went:
- 1 packet Quaker Original instant oats
- a splash of 2% milk
- 1/2 banana, sliced
- small spoonful Flaxseed Almond Butter
It filled me up for over 5 hours. Honestly, I hardly have an appetite these days. I definitely could have waited longer but felt weird doing so.
Who else is ready for the weekend?
