Friday, August 6
Also, I think this chemical free diet is challenging me more than I thought it might, and perhaps there's been a full moon because my kids have been a bit feral in the behaviour area too... Maybe something I might have coped with better had I had the comfort of chocolate, caffeine and a strong drink! Only 2 more weeks 'til caffeine and chocolate... which one will I buy!?
Now we're getting to the end of the cooler weather I'm going to leave you this Friday with a pudding that can be served hot, warm or cold. I'm not really a fan of the traditional rice pudding with sultanas etc - this one is much more my style. A little sweeter, a lot creamier and super comforting. Super-dooper easy too.
2 cups cooked rice (or 1 cup uncooked, cooked)
3 pears, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 190 degrees c
Place your pears on the bottom of your baking tray and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Next, sprinkle cooked rice over the sugar.
In a jug mix the milk, cream, egg and vanilla extract, mix well and pour oven the rice.
Place in oven for 25-35 minutes until golden brown on top..
Next week I'll be starting a series of guest posts - just one a week - these are going to still focus on food and family - if you're interested in doing a guest post here, drop me a line with your idea!
