Claypot Chicken Rice Recipe (without Claypot)July 17th, 2007Recipes, Malaysian Recipes, Recipes69 Comments
I am lazy by nature, very lazy.
If I were to choose something to describe my laziness, it’s probably snake. Yeah, I am kind of like a snake. I don’t like to move around too much, unless I really have to, for example: when I have to eat or when nature calls. My perfect way of spending time is just to sit around and do nothing. In my opinion, being idle is one of life’s greatest luxuries. Sitting around, lying about, curling up in a ball on the couch, in the bed, just do nothing. Well, throw in some day dreaming here and there…you get the idea.
But I feel lazier than usual recently. I must have been bitten by a giant lazy bug–I am lethargic, unmotivated, sluggish, and blah. My laziness has affected my daily rituals; I haven’t mopped my floor for two weeks, haven’t cleaned the kitchen countertop in the last three weeks, haven’t vacuumed since last month. (Yeah, my house will soon become a natural habitat for Spiderman as cobwebs are popping up everywhere.)
Perhaps it’s just the hot hot summer. The heat drains energy and vitality, plus summer beckons outdoor activities. So, I spend less time in the kitchen and more time outside having fun (which I should be)…
I still cook, but I cheat a lot, such as this claypot chicken rice without claypot. I love claypot chicken rice but I am too lazy to cook it from scratch. So, for convenience purposes, I used rice cooker. Why not? Who has time to stand there in front of the stove and wait for eternity for the chicken rice to cook in the claypot while there is a do-it-all-by-itself rice cooker? Duh. I have better things to do outside of the kitchen.
I am going to enjoy this summer and take things slow. So be prepared to get one or two posts a week from me. Be rest assured, even though I am lazy, I never sacrifice taste or authenticity when it comes to my cooking.
OK, I just got lazy again, so I will have to share my claypot chicken rice recipe later. *wink*
