Have I ever told you that I BIG puffy heart my Rice Cooker/Steamer?  Years ago, I purchased a rice cooker for cooking rice. I never even thought of using it as a steamer even though it came with a steaming rack and instructions.  It wasn't until a couple of years ago that I started exploring the options of steaming and I was SOLD instantly. It is so easy and so much better then boiling or microwaving. All you do is add about an inch of water on the bottom of the steamer, add you veggies then click the "Cook" button and it will cook it and then it will switch to "Warm" when it is done. Well yesterday, I was reading someones blog post about preparing Steel Cut Oatmeal and that they prepped the night before and turned them on in the morning when they got up. I decided to try it so before I went to bed I put in the one cup of oats and two cups of water. When I got up this morning, I turned it on before hopping in the shower and within 10-15 mins. I had yummy, steaming hot oatmeal! I added some Truvia and fresh strawberries and I was good to go. I brought it with me to work and ate it when I got to my desk.  It was so easy and super yummy AND filling!  The next thing I want to try with it is dried cranberries and raisins. So many options!

I have been bad about wearing my bugg lately. I usually upload my bugg data at work but they upgraded the software recently and now I need to download it to my PC but need help from MIS. I was friends with all the previous people in that position (I have been here 7 years) but there is a new contractor and I am not feeling any warm fuzzies from him. I haven't mentioned it yet but in the meantime, I have my Netbook so I can update data on that. It is just a matter of logistics. I need to work on being less resistant to changes for sure. Until next time...
