Like white on rice…

January 10, 2014

pudding. Really, everywhere you look…SNOW. I’m sure most of the nation feels the same way about the last week. Too much snow…way too cold. In between bouts of shoveling out I would retreat indoors to warm up and keep myself busy with one project or another so as not to run the risk of contracting “cabin fever”. I noticed a box of arborio rice that I rarely use and wondered what I could make of it other than risotto.After a quick search and a visit to Smitten Kitchen I found I had all of the ingredients necessary to make a rice pudding. When I saw that it was adapted from a recipe by Gale Gand and that the ingredient list was minimal I knew I had to give it go. I still had some shoveling to do and this would be the perfect “carrot” to pull me through that chore. A few ingredients and about a half an hour later and you’re ready to dig in…thick, rich and creamy with raisins and a hint of lemon zest, a touch of ground cinnamon over the top. Simple. Now back outside to work it off.

    Bay leaf? Wouldn’t have thought of that. Must try. Homemade rice pudding is just the thing.
