Waste of a click. 😤

I was making something quick for lunch so I reached for a packet of rice, you know the kind you put in the microwave for two minutes and it comes out in hard lumps and looking unappetising.................

Cue 20 pages of speculation of what it is and no further posts from the OP 😂😂

Anordinarymum Thu 24-Sep-20 14:24:36

So I decided to bash the packet with a rolling pin. I gave it a really good thrashing, more than I normally would

And the rice came out fluffy ! I could not believe it

I hate microwave rice. DP keeps buying it tho ‘for convenience’ I cant bring myself to eat it, tastes awful.

dawnc27 Thu 24-Sep-20 14:25:10

you're meant to beat the shit out the packet before you micro it

Anordinarymum Thu 24-Sep-20 14:25:17

After all those years

well that's just brilliant OP. Honestly you should get a medal. Don't know how I lived without knowing that

Eskers Thu 24-Sep-20 14:25:50

Just giving it a mild shake or two works, too, OP. You don't need to get all Die Hard on it.

Humiliatedbutproud Thu 24-Sep-20 14:25:51

Thank you for that 🙂.

You are supposed to squeeze them to break it up before you put it in the microwavegrin

MojoJojo71 Thu 24-Sep-20 14:26:03

How do you accidentally give something a good thrashing with a rolling pin?

I had been using it on play dough with my grandson and that's what he did smile

If you just squeeze the packet and break the rice up before microwaving it has the same effect. Saying that I thought everyone did that though

GoldenOmber Thu 24-Sep-20 14:29:04

It’s nicer lumpy, you weirdos.

I take your rice bashing and raise you lawn mowing your driveway.

Life changing.

Lawn mower up to the highest setting, go over your driveway and it sucks up all the leaves. Hoovering your driveway no effort required.

grin Well I was pleased with myself.

NannyR Thu 24-Sep-20 14:29:12

I thought it told you on the packet, to squeeze it and break it up before microwaving it.

* How do you accidentally give something a good thrashing with a rolling pin?*

OP's poor dp would like to know that too.
