Honestly, I think it takes twice as long to make it in the pressure cooker as it does on the stove top. But it makes less of a mess so I am a fan.
We like steel cut oats so it's gonna take a while no matter what. But this morning I remembered to put in the 1 3/4 cups water which I forgot to remember yesterday, which ended badly. Rod ate stale toast for breakfast yesterday before he headed out to put in a day's hard work.(Are any of you even still awake?)
But, while he was gone it was "Yay! Hair cut/color day is here! Yay"
I always like getting my hair done, especially because it is my friend, Jen, who does it.
And I haven't spent much friend time with her for a long while.
She has been working on starting up a side business,Vintage23 ,and apparently has been quite busy! With important things!
So what, I have to pay her for her time? No big deal. She is worth it. I am not quite sure what that says about our friendship,though.
But never mind! It was hair day!
FYI, friends. Clear, concise communication is vital when speaking with your stylist. I went in with very precise instructions: "I want you to make me look 10 years younger and 10-50 lbs lighter. And I want to look like a rockstar.And I need for you to erase all my cares and worries for the day. Ready? Go."
After I delivered my carefully worded instructions I confidently settled back in the chair, convinced Jen would work her black magic and do exactly as I wanted.
Everything was fine until I noticed another stylist gently rubbing her clients arms and hands as she leisurely rinsed her hair in the bowl.
Wait, what new, luxurious service is this?
As I turned to look questioningly at Jen,"what is this amazing new service, because, sister, I could soohooo use an arm and hand massage, she spun my chair so fast my hair whipped into my eyes and I couldn't see the expensive, moisturizing lotions the other stylist was massaging into the tired muscles of her client. And then Jen deftly changed the subject before I could demand for my own hand massage.
"Wow, Such cute boots you are wearing!"
"Yes, I know, right?" And just like a bird that sees something sparkly, the attention was now focused on these.
But I didn't forget, Jen. I didn't forget. I will get my hand massage. Oh, yes I will.
Jen ended cutting off all my hair, enough so that Rod didn't recognize me while I was making his oatmeal this morning.
So, obviously, I must look like a rock star.
Well, an aging rock star.
One who has maybe lived a hard life with weird parties and illegal drugs and creepy, stalkerish groupies and self-assured, morning after mug shots from police stations all over the world.
So I look like Keith Richards.
Or maybe his mother.
But I feel like Gwen Stephanie, so that is good enough for me.
And, I don't want to boast, but I may look identical (I.DENT.I.CAL) to a certain Spice Girl ....
Except maybe a couple 2-3 of her. She is so tiny! Like barely human! But, I have to say, I'm feeling pretty darn Posh-spicy, and livin the rock-n-roll life style as I pressure cook
