My Precious Great Aunt Louise’s Rice Pudding <3 and my Fruity Rice Pudding

My parents and Grandparents have all passed away.  I don’t talk with my sisters…..often.  I have cousins I chat with through email and facebook.  I moved away from home at the age of 20 and with it I left behind the opportunity to gather the Treasured Recipes of My Family.  I have asked others to share theirs with me.  Through this I have reconnected with my very Sweet Cousin, Linda.  She is so special to me and is always there when I need her.  She graciously shared a few Treasured Recipes with me of our family.  (Thank you so much Linda…Love You!) This Rice Pudding Recipe was her Precious Mama’s.  I know you will enjoy it! 


My Great Aunt Louise.  I remember when I was very young…She lived nearby.  We didn’t have any other family that lived in the state, it was such a Blessing to share time with her and have family closeby.   When My Precious Mama was very sick, and in the hospital,  Aunt Louise came to stay with us…My Darlin’ Daddy, my sisters and I.  She helped take care of our family and our home.  She was a rock for us and I am forever grateful for her and the memories I have of her.  I truly Love and Miss her…..<3


Great Aunt Louise’s Rice Pudding

Ingredients
2 cups cooked rice
4 eggs, beaten
3 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup raisins…optional

Directions
Beat Eggs. Stir in sugar. Add other ingredients. Stir. Spray oven proof
casserole dish with Pam. Pour mixture into dish. Set dish in pan of hot
water and bake at 300 degrees for 90 minutes. After 30 minutes of cooking
insert spoon at edge of pudding and stir from the bottom to distribute
rice and raisins.  

Fruity Rice Pudding

I changed mine a little by adding 1/4 to 1/2 pureed banana 
I used a whole banana, pictured above and it was great, but it was a little too much
1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
1 1/2 cups diced apples
increased cinnamon to 3/4 teaspoon
decreased vanilla to 1 teaspoon
Place in a crock pot and cooked on low for 3-5 hours, depending on your crock pot.  
Stirring occasionally once it starts to thicken.

Pork and Peppers

I wanted pepper steak...no steak in the freezer but I did have thin sliced pork loin.  Supper was decided.  A red pepper, onion, seasoning and rice made a nice plate.

Maters and Rice

Thoughts of Mama standing at the stove making this delicious dish from her canned tomatoes.  Sometimes she would fry up some thick rind bacon to eat with this and make a batch of homemade buttermilk biscuits!  Comfort in the form of food is the greatest healer.  It can calm you when you are upset.  Bring a flood of memories (as now) of the special people and times shared with them.

Make a pot of this, feel the comfort from within and make some memories with the ones that are special in your life.  <3

Very easy to make.  I don't have any canned tomatoes...mine came from the store in a can.   Wish we had a Garden other than one the boys planted to see how it grows.  They did a great job with theirs but it was ust to get them started with the love of growing their own food.  How it makes the taste richer in every aspect.  They will be growing another garden, hopefully a BIG ONE,  for the fall.  Stay tuned.  <3

Maters and Rice

28 oz can of Diced, Crushed or Whole Tomatoes (if whole, squish with your hands)
1 cup Long Grain White Rice
1 Tablespoon Bacon Grease, optional
1/4 teaspoon Ground Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Sugar, optional 

Bring everything except rice to a boil over medium heat.  Add rice when boiling..stir, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.  Stirring occasionally.  If rice isn't done cook longer,  checking every minute.  It should be ready in 5 more minutes.  Taste and adjust seasoning, adding a little water, if needed.  Just a hint of sweet, a pip of the pepper and a deep, rich taste of Maters.  Enjoy!
