Hi, my name is Lauren Grier and I can’t cook Asian food. Seriously.

Tonight, I tried to cook a simple stir-fry meal and failed in epic proportions. Even using these simple ingredients, I couldn’t pull it off.
I feel as though I am cursed. Every time I try to cook rice, it turns into an oatmeal consistency. Have you ever had oatmeal rice? I don’t recommend it. I know you are supposed to do 1 cup of rice, to 2 cups of water. Bring the water to a boil, add the rice, reduce to simmer, cover and let it go. But for some reason, it is ALWAYS opposite day when I cook rice. Who knew, something so simple could cause me anxiety!
Anyways, thank goodness that I have a loving husband because he cleared his plate. I think he may have secretly pinched his nose while eating this dish. I know, I would’ve!
Here is a picture of the finished product. Mmmmm…creamy rice. Barf.
Do you have any advice for cooking rice? Asian food? I NEED HELP!
