Pictures - 14 February :)

These are my clay pots (I have three but one is still at my mom's). The new Korean clay pot is on the right. I twisted some green wire to create a handle for the Chinese pot because it was hard to pick up the lid when hot. Both are quite heavy.
View from above. The fish motif is so popular on clay pots. That or vegetables. Each clay pot should be soaked in water for 24 hours before first use. These are the biggest clay pots available, for porridge or slow cooking.
  My books. And action figures @ robots. I haven't bought a book for ages. Yet thank God for the iPad, I'm downloading free books like crazy (only finished reading 5% of them). Downloading even more (frantically, as SOPA and PIPA had already made some sites disappear)
These are the school prefects under me. We took this picture after the assembly this morning :)
We will have more new prefects at the end of March.

Those pots are wonderful - especially the fish one.

And I see you have a guitar too!

Those clay pots are attractive enough to leave on display. That's a plus.

What a nice looking group of kids!

Those are very nicely made clay pot...

I thought you dont want to take care of your shinobi prefects anymore this year?

Yup, those SOPA and PIPA is really pain in the ass...

Rock Chef; that guitar is not mine. It belongs to my housemate. Sadly, i have the same amount of musical talent as a teapot. My primary school music teacher was so perplexed why i failed his subject when i excelled in others.
I love music, but have no musical talents. ;(

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Ms. A; they are too big to display and most flat surfaces in my house are already filled with cheap ornaments etc.

I will surely tell them about your compliment ;)

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Tenchi; i do not wish for the evil old woman to rip my prefects apart in my absence. They are good children.... Well most of them.

So do the clay pots go into the oven or on top of a stove? Is it gas stove? Or in microwave? How do you cook with them.

Do you use a hot pad to pick up lids like I do here? I use a hot pad on all lids just in case it is hot.

What are the ingredients in your porridge?

Shadowthorne @ Ramzu Zahini said...

Claypots are usually meant on stove top. Its almost the same as a dutch oven, cooking for long period of time, preferably with lots of liquid in it, or it will crack and shatter. Sometimes i use some kind of pad to pick the lid, but most of the time i didn't.
Anything can be thrown into a porridge. For example, a rice porridge contains rice, boiled for a very long time till mushy, and usually i add carrots, onions, pieces of meat etc in it. Salt, pepper, any spices for taste.
If you fancy them, throw them into the pot ;)
Cooking without a recipe, motto stolen from a tv chef.
