Thing-a-Day 2011 #12 - Blackout dinner

This post used to be on Posterous. I rescued my posts before Posterous shut down and am now sharing them here.

This is a bit silly, but sometimes thing-a-days can be silly, right?

The power in our apartment building went out while I was making dinner. The rice managed to mostly finish, so I decided I’d heat up this pouch of kidney bean curry over a candle. The aluminum pouch spreads the heat nicely, I just need to pick it up and squish the contents around every couple of minutes to make sure everything is heated evenly.
