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.
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.
