Innovative Rice Bag

Recently I've been longing for my rice bag. I didn't bring it with me because it's just a lot of weight, but it sure would come in handy now. I finally decided I would just stick some rice in a sock, tie a knot in the end, and voila I would have a mini rice bag.

It worked out really well. One time. The second time, I zapped it too long and ended up with burnt rice and a sock with a hole in it. The smell was everywhere. I bet my roommates didn't suspect that I had been microwaving rice-filled socks.

Try number two is going better. So far.

Here's wishing you a warm and happy Tanya's birthday.


  1. I recently made a rice sock for my son's sore ear. The ear is better and now the rice sock is a favorite toy. I'm just praying the ruberband doesn't come off. =)

  2. Yeah, I'd stick another rubber band on there as insurance . . . or tie a knot in the sock. :)

  3. What a great idea--I'll have to try that one.

  4. Ugh. Is there anything worse than burnt rice? Double up the rubberbands.
