Rice Pudding


My husband Brian's favorite Mexican fast food place and his favorite teriyaki  grill have one thing in common, they both serve little deli tubs of rice pudding that taste incredible.  They're so good that we eat often eat the rice pudding first, while waiting for the rest of our meal.  I tell you all this because my daughter Katrina and I found a recipe that tastes just like it.  It takes a long time to bake, but it's worth the wait!



Rice Pudding
1 cup whipping cream
3/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup uncooked white rice
4 cups milk
Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients except cinnamon in a 9" square pan.  Bake for 2 hours without stirring.  Pour into bowls and chill.  Garnish with nutmeg.

How to Make a Family Memories Board Game

I'm so excited about this wonderful family memory game, I can barely stand it.  The game is brought to you by Family Fun Magazine, the best magazine on the planet.  This link will take you to the basic instructions.



I took the basic instructions and turned this game into a one of a kind story-telling fest that is custom made for my family.  The object of the game is to go around the board sharing memories and learning more about your family while trying to collect all five treasures so that you can head Home Sweet Home.  I gave the game to my parents for Christmas, and it was a real hit at our family reunion the next month.  I will tell you what I did here so you can use, tweak, and enhance the ideas to fit your own family.  It may be a bit of work, but it is totally worth it.  BTW, when you play the game--make sure you have the camcorder running!
