I cooked it, ate it, and did not die

Thinking of starting a blog section called "Things I cooked that were not toxic."

Easily half my meals are experiments.

We keep cereal and frozen waffles on hand for those evenings when things don't go as planned.

Tonight's test tube baby: salmon, rice, and peas. No big deal, you say? Well, I threw it ALL in the rice cooker to cook. Yeah, that's right, I put rice, peas, salmon, and water in the rice cooker and turned it on. Makes me nervous, considering it's a RICE cooker, not a "salmon, peas, and rice" cooker.

I'm off to go see what happened. The smoke alarm didn't go off, at least.

Update: It was edible. In fact, Byrd said it was "pretty good." Sweet!

Experiments are fun. Glad you didn't die. Once, when we were snowed in for a week, we used up all our odds and ends in the cupboards and freezer. Most of our experiments worked out well, and we're still alive.

Hey! Rice cookers are the Far East version of a slow cooker. It's amazing what you can do with them. My sister-in-law got this amazing rice cooker that will do rice and grains. She does one-pot meals in it all the time.

Let your imagination run free!

I'm glad your meal was a success! I don't have the courage to experiment like that. And with my track record with cutting myself accidentally with knives, it's best that I stay away from the kitchen. LOL!

Sounds like something my wife would like (I only eat fish in sushi form though).

Huh, sounds pretty good with a little teriyaki or butter!
