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.

Day Trip!

We love to go to the Marine Science Center.  It is so much fun and teaches the boys a lot about our Marine Creatures, Birds and their habitats.  It shows how others care enough to nurture hurt animals back to health.
It is a place where ill and injured Sea Turtles, Birds, and Marine Life are taken.  Some are released when well…others find this their forever home. 
The Boys had an Amazing time!  They looked at native birds that were being nurtured back to health.  Saw Injured Sea Turtles that may one day be released back into the ocean.  Were able to pet a pine snake.  Saw different species of sea creatures and corals.  But the Best and most Treasured event of the day was being able to pet Sting Rays!  The Boys were full of wonderment and delight as they pet the curious, prehistoric looking Sea Creature.

Thoughts Of A Mindful Child

I always talk to my children about making memories.  Always do things and act in ways that memories are treasured ones.  My oldest told me this morning that "Memories are thoughts stored away in jars in your mind.  When you want to relive one, you find the jar and open it to view what is inside."  I think I have a very smart 8 year old!  ~huge smile and a heart full of love and pride~
