Rice Pudding and I No MOON

Long time no update. Here in a nutshell is what I’ve been doing the past month..

No, we did not get “the bug” that the rest of Matt’s family succumbed to over Christmas.

I feel like I’m coming out of a fog that I’ve been in for the past few months.

Some kind of depression/mood thing.

Jack is now talking up a storm. He says pretty much what ever he wants now– in one word increments. When  he doesn’t have the word for what he’s thinking of, he screeches loudly until I provide him with it.

He just said his first Sentence:  “I no Moon”  translated– I don’t want to  go down for my nap and read Good Night Moon

Last night we had rice pudding — which was delicious … and I’ll try to update more   Often.

Rice Pudding

5 cups whole milk

1 cup arborio rice

1 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup sugar

1 cinnamon stick

1/2 tsp. mincedfresh  ginger

zest of 1/2 lemon

Put all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer stirring often until milk is absorbed and texture is too your liking. Yummy hot or cold. Sprinkle with cinnamon before serving.  REALLY GOOD!

  2. Glad to hear from you! I think this time of year is really hard- we don’t get enough vitamin D or something.
