Wednesday Morning, another day in the neighbourhood....

so much for a restful vacation! Today we have to go and buy all the stuff to organize three closets. More mess and conniption. Oh joy.

The frig is bare, but when the kids came for supper last night, we did okay pulling from the pantry...pork chops browned then baked in a pineapple sauce, basmati rice and ginger carrots. I made Jocey's Rice Pudding for dessert, and it was tooooo good.

1 cup of milk, brought just to boiling with 1 cup of cooked rice
In a separate bowl, whisk 2 eggs, vanilla and cinnamon or nutmeg, and two packets of sugar twin. Add 1/4 cup of well rinsed plumped up raisins. Add 1/2 cup of the hot milk to temper the egg mix, then put the egg mix in the pot with the rice and milk. Bake in the oven in a bain Marie for half an hour on 350ยบ (I take my pot, and put it in the frying pan with about an inch of water. I have pots with stainless handles, wouldn't work so good with the plastic handled ones!

That is all there is to it. Of course, I served it with a little blob of real whipped cream, Pete's treat! Usually, we have a spoonfull of cool whip.If you get the low fat egg nog on sale, use that instead of the milk, and skip the whipped topping all together. Or not!
