I do have a recipe for quick chocolate pudding that I'll use next time now that the box of instant is long gone.

I should buy milk tomorrow and make rice pudding. The carnaroli and vialone nano rice I have aren't going to use themselves up.

Rice pudding is something else I've never made, haven't had it in years! I know my other half likes it so I should give that a try some time.

My favorite is Dominican rice pudding. It's made with coconut milk and cloves as the main flavors. I always find cinnamon-flavored rice puddings lacking in comparison.
Bay leaf and vanilla bean is really nice, too.
I don't know what my spicing of choice will be yet. Have so many spices to choose from!

I automatically think cinnamon and raisins with rice pudding, it's how my mom made it when I was a kid. The coconut milk and cloves sounds fantastic!! Yum, yum.

Strawberry fa ge yogurt. After the horse show I've been consuming massive numbers of fluids and anything heavier was unappealing.

Both of these sound super super wonderful. As long as there's no raisins in there.

Tonite will be buffalo chicken salad. Strawberries and mandarin oranges for dessert.

Haha, jeep. I like raisins, but not in my rice pudding. I like it just sweet enough, and raisins just add another layer of sweetness. Although booze-soaked or tea-soaked raisins aren't too bad. But yeah, raisin-less rice pudding for us!

I always liked the first few bites with raisins then I'd pick out the rest. I do the same thing with oatmeal, I always think I want some then after the first few I'm over it. Poor little wrinkly ignored things.

Tonight will most likely be leftovers of the shrimp ginger lime pasta.

You know, the number of shrimp dishes you've seemingly made throughout this thread did make me pause and wonder if your name isn't secretly Bubba.

I am picky with raisins in that these days they must be Hunza golden raisins. Best raisins ever! I was getting some one day and laughed when another woman said they were the best ever. See, I'm not the only one who thinks so! My nephew adores them, too. They have such a great sweet-tart flavor. But seriously, tea-soaked raisins in saffron rice pudding is a pretty tasty version.

Saria, you're so observant! I had three bags of shrimp in the freezer to use up and since I love them and Jason isn't crazy about them, I got to work on the lovelies while he's gone. Only half a bag left and I'm making shrimp and Spanish rice burritos with those this week.

Heh, he's weird.
Shrimp are awesome. I could eat shrimp-fried rice all the time and not get tired of it.

"Hey, George, the ocean called; they're running out of shrimp."
"Yeah, well the jerk store called! They're running out of you!"

I made chocolate pudding for dessert. It was good. It was easy. This is dangerous.

Celebrated my uncle's bday today since Passover starts tomorrow and we wanted him to be able to have cake, and it it too.
Dad made enchiladas using the recipe from a local restaurant but added some extra chilis and stuff. My stepmother made a 3 layer cake w/ chocolate and peanut butter cake layers, a peanut butter icing and chocolate ganache over the top.
I made an herb and fennel salad to start off, with mixed bitter lettuces, dried cranberries, slight amount of cheddar and pumpkin seeds.

Just finished making the soup for matzoh ball soup tomorrow. Mom will make the matzoh balls. We'll add baby spinach to what's left of tonight's salad plus some carrots and broccoli. Main course will be chicken since I think I'm the only one in the family who makes lamb.

I prefer rice pudding without raisins, too!

Random question: anyone else make your own beef jerky? People keep offering to pay for ours, so we're trying to come up with new flavor combos.

I made jerky for years. My favorite is deer jerky. I had the most amazing recipe and then lost it. I've never been able to duplicate the flavor or texture and stopped making jerky all together. : (
