Step One: Realize the Problem
Problem #1: I don’t follow directions.
I just messed up instant rice. How does one do this? I’ll tell you. I didn’t follow the directions. I saw that I needed butter and water and a skillet. I threw the box to the side, measured out the ingredients, poured them all into the skillet, and cranked up the stove. I was surprised when I noticed that the rice was done cooking, before the 15 minutes that the box quoted was up.
1st Attempt = FAIL
I ate as much as I could, but I didn’t finish it. It tasted well. The texture was completely off though. I’ll try again soon. And I will follow the directions next time. I don’t like wasting food.
