Pictures, Jan-Feb 2013

My mom came over and made me fried rice. I was obnoxious by taking photos and a video of her cooking. The video is for my own reference, but here are a couple of pictures.

Last weekend was the blizzard. One side of my house had a dusting. The other side of my house (where my driveway is) had four foot drifts.

And today, I was experimenting with black rice. I boiled 1/2 cup of black rice in lots of water for about 20 minutes. And then, to the boiling rice, I added 1 red bell pepper, cut up. After a few more minutes, I added slices of Chinese sausage (leftover from my mom’s fried rice visit) just to warm through. The whole small pot of rice, bell pepper, and sausage was drained, and then left to rest 10 minutes. I garnished with sliced kumquats, and called it lunch. Not bad for someone who couldn’t think of anything better to make! (^_^)

Not bad looking, right?  You can barely see the sausage.  It absorbed the coloring of the rice.  (That is one potent purple!)
