Sunday Dinner

The weather is so cold here this summer I thought I would get a head start on Fall and decorate with some of my Autumn decor. I love the fall, the smells, the colors..just everything.
My family alone is large, then we throw in Brandon every Sunday (he is like another son of ours) and my daughter Kristine's boy friend Ryan. This week we had John and Molly over and Brother Bob. I cannot believe we fit all those people in my small dinning room.
I made rice pudding for dessert. A pot roast, mashed potatoes, carrots, green beans, Kristine brought a salad and Kimberly brought dinner rolls and apple cider to drink.
It was a nice dinner and we really enjoyed having company. if I could afford to have people over all the time I think I would. Sunday is the day the house is open. The college kids will be back soon and we will have them over.
The rice pudding recipe is so easy and it is really creamy. My husband hates white rice but he really enjoyed it until I told him it was rice pudding. Men are so funny. I will list the recipe below for the pudding.

Rice Pudding

1 cup rice
6 cups milk
1 cup sugar
2 T flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 tea vanilla
1 tea cinnamon
1/2 tea. nutmeg

Pin a heavy bottom pan add rice and four cups milk. Cook for 20 minutes stirring often. In a bowl add the other two cups milk, sugar flour, eggs and vanilla. Cook for another 25 minutes until thicken. Stir in cinnamon and nutmeg and raisins if desired. Cool or eat at room temp.

I never received my invitation! I came on here Saturday looking for a buffalo wing recipe and found none! I was deeply saddened!

You should had emailed me I have one we really love. I never measure so you just add how much you want.
I will guess the amount..
20 drumlets/wings
1 pkg hidden valley ranch salad dressing
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup tabasco sauce

Heat oven to 450
put chicken in bowl sprinkle package salad dressing over chicken and mix well. Pour in butter then tabasco sauce. I let my sit for about 15 minutes, It takes me that long to get my hands washed and for the buring to stop from the hot sauce. lol so use gloves or a spoon
Lay out on a pan and sprinkle with paprika and put in the oven for 20 minutes, turn over after 20 minutes and sprinkle other side with paprika and turn oven down to 400 and bake for about 20 minutes more or until done. We dip ours in rach dressing because no one else but me like blue cheese dressing.
