There is no Hodgepodge this week, Joyce is taking a week off so that she can live her life and not just write about it. I know that feeling. I took a lot of time off for my health and starting up blogging again is going slowly. I think I'll do a Monday - Wednesday - Friday blog for a bit and see how I feel.
Today I'll share a recipe I just made.
I feels like fall has come upon us. The daytime weather is up to 70's and dry. The evening temps are in the low 50's with a breeze. Our electric bill is happy as the AC is off, the windows are open and the cold air is fresh and clean. But it makes me feel like I should be putting up the fall decorations and digging out the crock pot.
Well the fall decorations are not up but the crock pot did come out. Do you use your crock pot in the summer? I know of people who do and I know that using it would mean a lot of hot good meals in the summer but I don't use it until it gets cold. And it was cold yesterday. So out came the crock pot and the first thing I made was.....
Rice pudding. I really love rice pudding but it's not very low carb so I changed up the recipe a bit to lower those carbs.
It turned out really good and with a dollop of low carb ice cream, it was a delish ending to a great dinner.
So what did I use for a recipe:
2 cups Almond milk
1/3 cup rice
1/6 cup sugar free maple syrup
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
pinch of nutmeg
Grease crock pot, dissolve maple syrup in milk and scramble the egg, then add it to the crock pot.
Add all the rest of the ingredients, pour into crock pot.
Cook on high for 6 hours. I added walnuts in the last 1/2 hour just because I could.
It makes enough for 6 servings so it's a good size amount! And it's good too.
So we are having a Fallish August. I hope we get summer back, and that this trend doesn't continue to make an early fall and even an earlier Winter!!
