These all hung out in Gretel for about half an hour on high, until it was time for my ~5 hour lab. I had a nice-ish dinner to go to with some classmates and a teacher about an hour after lab, so my plan was to finish the Southern blot as fast as possible then eat and go to dinner.
There was a twenty-minute break in the lab around two hours before the dinner, so I ran over to my room to turn on Gretel. Oops...instead of turning her off before, I'd set her to low! I mean, everything was fine, just very soggy. At least it wasn't the toaster oven or rice cooker. I self-consciously turned off Gretel, then ran over to lab. When I got back (fyi, the Southern blot worked! Yay!), I poured it on some rice and tried it.
Wow, really, REALLY delicious! The flavors blended together WONDERFULLY. I scarfed it down and had a lovely time at the Honors Institute dinner.
- Always double-check cooking appliances before leaving the dorm.
- Mustard is a simple, delicious way to add flavor, even to a meal that isn't eaten with the hands.
- If the plan is to make a dish entitled “________ Chicken” that is not a soup, one package of pre-cooked chicken is not enough to make a decent amount of food.
- Do NOT leave a dish like this on for most of the day, since the chicken will be overcooked (though still very eatable).
Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SOFI!!!!! I LOOOOOVE YOU!!!!!! HAVE FUN DRIVING AFTER MIDNIGHT!!!!
