Honestly, we have real good hygiene habits in my house, I can assure you of that!
But, lets face it, living in paradise with 125% humidity can be a little trying sometimes ... my running shoes (which have NOT seen much running action for quite a while) get a little ripe smelling ... and oh man, you should smell the shoes that Hubby wears outside in the yard, patio, garage and boat that constantly get wet ... enough to suck the oxygen right out of your body ... whew!
Then you have the Boy ... who works out pretty darn hard and doesn't always wear socks, nor does the Princess ...
I mean, seriously, I've had to throw shoes away because you could smell them just sitting there. No one wants to be the person that people are wrinkling their nose at when they are walking by you!
So when I saw the featured post for the Smelly Shoe Solution (and dang, I'm still trying to find the original post because I had no need to bookmark it, such a simple fix!)
One of the things I picked up at Costco was a new Rice Cooker. The one I have, well, I gave that to the Boy when he went away to college (so he could make his macaroni and cheese), not to mention, it was small as heck, like mini size!
So, I figured, you know, Hubby likes to make rice occasionally. The Boy makes brown rice in the microwave every other day and leaves the bubbly residue behind for ME to find when I go to heat something up (I hate a dirty microwave, totally wigs me out and sends me running for the windex!) ... so I grabbed the rice cooker ($29.95), a 10 pound bag of organic brown rice and a 20 pound bag of Basmati rice. I'm asking myself now, a whole week later, what the hell am I going to do with 20 pounds of Basmati rice? Anyways.
Then I was reading the recipe booklet that came along with the cooker. They had one recipe that said to add the eggs, unshelled, to the steamer basket. Ok. That made me re-read it a few times. Unshelled? Did they mean out of the shell? Un…
Are you all drowning in your Pinterest Pins?? I keep adding more boards to get my pins more organized and now I'm thinking I need to do a new board for Pinned and Tried ... just because there are SO MANY!
Salisbury Steaks ... that's normally a Hubby type meal that he prepares ...chars them on the grill, finishes them in the oven and makes a nice gravy to go with the buttered egg noodles. But you know what, after he keeps stealing stuff from the pantries and not telling me, I'm going to start doing all the cooking ... and this is just the beginning (I jest, no way will I take over the cooking 100% ... he's a damn good cook and well, why would I do that??)
The recipe looks simple as heck ... I mean, really. But within the first few seconds of gathering ingredients, I ran into my FIRST glitch ... no onion soup mix ... to which I went back to my rant about using the LAST item of something and not saying something to me ... I'm afraid I'm turning in to a nagg…
