Pancake perfection

Have you ever made a pancake in your rice cooker?  Before this morning I would have likened that question with someone asking if I steam broccoli in my toilet. However, I tried this (not going to try the broccoli thing) and it rocks. The way I make pancakes has forever been changed. 

I saw a Facebook post about this cooking method. Usually when I see an idea like that I think, "Wow that looks like fun. I should do that sometime!" - then I'm distracted by something shiny and the idea dies there. I actually followed through with this one and did it within like a half an hour too.  Freaking miracle, I tell ya!

I combined my pancake mix with it's necessary ingredients, dumped it all in my rice cooker, pressed "cook" and left it.  A few minutes later Mr. rice cooker beeped to let me know my perfect pancake was ready for consumption. Note, I am not a food photographer or stylist. Clearly...

The kids thought it was fun, it tasted great and it was kind of pretty!  Apparently there are all sorts of crazy things you can do with your rice cooker. I might have found a new hobby.

Idle time

We had an appraiser come by this morning as we are planning to do some remodeling and therefore are seeking a home equity line of credit.  Blah, blah boring.  Anyway, because she was coming by, my house is in serious tip top shape.  That, coupled with the baby sleeping, the big sister at a friend's house and middle child contentedly reading a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book - I found myself with NOTHING to do.  It was weird.

So I decided to make a 4th of July "wreath" for our front door.  This took about 10 minutes to complete and let's be honest, it looks like it took about 10 minutes to complete.  But it makes my door look less lonely and took up some brain power for a few minutes.

Please ignore those things that look like bullet holes in our door.  They aren't that - well at least I don't think so...
