A microwave is how I tend to go about re-heating most rice, but a pot or steamer set-up are great if you don't have one. The pot also gives you a little bit of crisped up rice if you want it.

I'm going to sneak out to Trader Joes at lunch and get some instant coffee. What else so I need to make iced coffee?

Just got the call that my paycheck is finally waiting for me at the office to be picked up...

It's funny how it's all come full-circle. If they'd just let me fricking pick it up TWO WEEKS AGO to begin with, none of this would've been an issue!

I honestly think you are the worst kind of person I know and I dislike you immensely.

Why you have ANY friends I have no idea.

Lets see:

- lacking humour
- critical and judgemental to peoples FACES
- Always scowling
- cruel and deliberate
- cold
- the worst grudge holder I have ever met

I see nothing but sourpusses and unhappiness in your future and the only reason I see you anymore is because you are my best friends friend and I have no choice. Everyone needs to just grow up.

Even though these days I eat strictly non-Americanized Chinese food (mmm, Cantonese), I'm loving this series on Chinese-American classics. Hmmm, now I want to make beef with broccoli seeing as how I have all the ingredients for it.

I love the chicken one in particular. It bugs me how many sites claim that they'll produce the results from Chinese takeout joints but they don't mention velveting at all. Technique FAIL! You cannot get the right texture without velveting the protein!

All the more reason to mourn.

Aahh ok, thanks for the tip. I hate crisp rice though, especially that damn con con/pegao. Yuck!

I'm going to feel horrible if you don't like it. The pressure!

I must have vanilla coffee syrup for my iced coffee, but it's not essential for everyone. Someone should try that disgusting bacon flavored syrup, I bet that mess is nasty.

x, I love that you said you're "jacked up" on coffee. Before I started the iced coffee at home thing I was just drinking hot coffee and it's 1/2 caff, but now my iced is full on and I'm bouncing off the walls in the afternoon. Jacked UP!

I'd just make the vanilla syrup. Sugar, water, and vanilla, after all.
It doesn't hurt that I've got a stash of vanilla beans, but extract works just fine, too. You know commercial ones are at least cut if not fully made with vanillin (aka imitation) stuff anyway, no vanilla bean in sight.

Going to see this boy I'm in love with play Romeo is a terrible idea.

I guess I could do that after I run out and just reuse my bottle because I like it with my pour spout. I just bought two more bottles so it will be a while. Although the Torani says vanilla extract "with other natural flavors". What does that even mean? Natural what? Lady bugs?

That means vanilla extract plus vanillin and a few other things. That's why using just extract at home would work just fine if no vanilla beans are available.

One of my favorite local restaurants serves vanilla simple syrup as a sweetener at the table instead of sugar packets, but it's not nearly as thick as the syrup you get when you buy "coffee syrup" or see them pour it at Starbucks. Do they add a thickener? Or it just higher sugar content or something?

Are you telling me that I now have to drive 30 more miles to purchase a good bottle of butternut flavoring? 30 miles, in the other direction, for my favorite pound cake? I'll do it, but I have to ask, WTH is this world coming to?!?!?
