The Blog

first things first, visitors, and hell freezing over (again)


yes i’m talking to you.
{over here waving and jumping up and down}
i just wanted to say i enjoy your comments, questions, emails, tweets, and links! thank you!
seriously do you know how tempted (each day) i am to go to each one of your guys’ sites and give you as much praise, love and words of encouragement that you all give to me? not only that, but some of you make me laugh real hard with your comments as well.
but, those who read on a regular basis know that i have a plentiful plate of children, home, crafts, and sanity, that makes me have to do a mass “thank you for your wonderful comments and thank you for liking my blog.” right here, on a post, to all of you…
so from the bottom of my heart “THANK YOU” 😉

these two are my in-laws.
yup, i’m pretty lucky.
they are here.
in my house.
to visit and to help mr. v and co with some handy stuff
my father in law is one super handy guy.
he took care of me while mr. v and co was over seas

and because i want to be a nice d-i-l, i make them food, and pay attention to them.

i cooked a pretty good home cooked meal, and i made enough rice to feed a football team (by accident).
well that’s if football teams ate rice.
anyways…i had rice coming out of my ears…and didn’t know what to do with it so my s-i-l found a recipe for rice pudding using COOKED rice.

turned out pretty darn good.

so here’s the recipe for rice pudding made with COOKED rice…just in case you get stuck making too much rice like i did.

{yes, insert gasp here}
yes, that would be THREE times this week i do a post with food in it.
yes, hell is freezing over
here you go:

what you will need:

2 cups of COOKED rice
3 cups of milk
1/2 cup of sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of raisins
1 tsp of vanilla
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg

combine rice, milk, sugar, and salt in a sauce pan
bring to a boil
lower to a simmer, add raisins.

cook until all the milk is absorbed
add: cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg
(please don’t ask me how many it serves cause i don’t know, i just know that i doubled it and now i have rice pudding coming out of my ears)

have a nice weekend. 😉
