For dinner, I went to make rice. We were having leftover gumbo. I keep my mini Instant Pot on the counter and that’s what I always use for rice. I had boiled eggs in it yesterday and washed it but before I cooked rice in it, I wanted to scrub it. Eggs. Chicken butts. I have a problem with that. So, I took the insert out and scrubbed it. Sprayed it with antibacterial spray. Rinsed it. Dried it and set it down but not inside the pressure cooker.
Dumped the rice in the cooker. Dumped the water in the cooker. Where is all that water coming from? There was no insert and the water and rice went right through the pot but some of the rice is stuck in the bottom.
That’s the cooker sitting upside down on the porch. I was going to take it apart but there’s a weird screw in there. Vince came in.
Me: Will you do something for me and not ask any questions?
Me: The little pressure cooker is out on the porch. Will you look at that weird screw and see if you can get it apart?
Vince: Why do you need to get it apart?
Me: You can’t ask questions but there’s rice in there.
Vince: Why is there rice in there?
Me: Too many questions!
He said he can take it apart. If I’ve ruined it, let’s home there’s a mini Instant Pot on the Black Friday sales somewhere. I love that little pot.
