    Dinner 2022

    One of the burners of my stove is not working. What with one thing and another I burnt my dinner.

    Who pays for the steak?
  3. Rather than a boule, tonight I baked three baguettes. I just began my mai tai, and so aways till dinner.
  4. I was mistaken. The options are Twinkle twinkle little star, a beep, or no sound.
  5. Yes, that is the default, however other musical selections are options.
  6. Probably the same thing you do with a sprouted avocado.
  7. As mentioned previously the non user replaceable battery of my older Zojirushi passed on long ago. The device has lost all concept of sidereal motion. Yet when I press the start button, the display still faithfully counts down and when done it plays a cheerful tune.
  8. On both my Zojirushi rice cookers count-down mode is how the timers work by default. Strange that yours does not. You are correct the time estimates change a bit during the cycle.
  9. I only wish. Munching small buttery ears of corn I'm surprised cheek accidents don't occur more often.

    Dinner 2022

    Diner tonight was corn on the cob. The ears from last night's Whole Foods delivery were rather small, and I thought I might not have selected them myself. However they were quite good. The accompanying music was Shubert's Trout Quintet. My reading material was Harold McGee's Nose Dive, A Field Guide to the World's Smells. I preordered the book when it first came out but am only now getting around to reading. "Mildly fishy putrescine, a four-carbon chain, turns out not to be particularly putrid. When exposed to the air, it's quickly oxidized to form a stronger-smelling ring compound, pyrroline, which is found in and smells of human semen. Pyrroline is also an important volatile in the smell of human skin...as well as the aroma of boiled corn." I may never eat again.
  11. I shall never again stab myself in the cheek with a corn holder.
  12. This past week a pedestrian crossing was installed across the highway to a vast vacant former farmer's field, next to the sign saying Whole Foods Coming Soon. Meanwhile my lime delivery took over an hour to arrive last night.
  13. I used to grow okra in pots on my balcony. If the pods are 9" long, they are wood. As @Shelby said, pick when a couple inches long...and don't turn your back.
  14. My older NP-NVC18 has a scorch setting that is said to make a crispy bottom. The option is removed in the NW-JEC10BA. For Persian rice it might be better to find a Persian rice cooker or a Persian grandmother.
