When I was in 3rd grade, one morning my mom decided that Sister and I needed to eat Cream of Wheat before we went to school, and not the lovely fried eggs and toast we were used to.
It was the most awful thing I had ever tasted, next to cooked spinach. Not only did it taste bad, but the texture was almost unbearable, and I was a brat about having to eat it.
I didn’t know it then, it was all ma had to feed us. (sorry ma)
To this day, I struggle to eat grits or oatmeal~~they taste great, but the texture gives me nightmares.
Isabelle of Les gourmandises d’Isa picked out today’s TWD recipe.
I have never tried rice pudding, because I begin to get all sorts of crazy when I think about spooning some onto my plate. I envision cream of wheat in its place, and it is all over for me.
Tapioca pudding has never crossed my lips either.
Today’s recipe was really straight forward.
There were only 4 ingredients.
Milk, sugar, rice and either vanilla or chocolate.
Did y’all have any doubt about which direction I went?
Didn’t think so.
After boiling rice for 10 minutes, draining, boiling milk with sugar and cooking rice for exactly 55 more minutes, adding chocolate, cooling for at least 6 hours, I had chocolate rice pudding.
I tried a bite, and it tasted fabulous.
But Superman and the boy will have to eat it for me because my crazy just won’t allow me to do it.
If you like rice pudding, go check out Isabelle’s blog. She has the recipe. Make the chocolate one, and enjoy it for me.
