Hope you all had a lovely Square Root Day yesterday. Having studied squares and square roots in 7th grade math the day previous, we were primed. Learned a little about how to find an imperfect square root, and I even cut my carrots square for the occasion. Yes, I'm an odd duck.
But it was an awfully cold Square Root Day. So we actually had poached chicken for dinner, along with a nice, warm rice pudding for dessert. Some of the kids were less than enthused about the whole idea of rice pudding, but I love the stuff. This one was baked in the oven, helping to heat my house, and stave off the 15 degree weather. Have I mentioned that I really, really, really can't wait for spring to arrive? If I didn't sunburn in about 12 minutes, I'd have to migrate to a warmer climate.
OVEN BAKED RICE PUDDING
1-1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup raisins
Combine all ingredients in a baking dish. Bake at 325F for 45 to 55 minutes, stirring once after about 30 minutes. Serves 6.
Of course, I doubled this. And there was still some left for my breakfast today. I hope you all don't mind, but I'm off to fill my face.
And, to prove I'm a complete nutcase, Happy Grammar Day. This is the only day whose date is a complete sentence: March 4th. March forth. Maybe we'll make punctuation pretzels today.
