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.
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!
