Tuesdays with Dorie this week was arborio rice pudding (chocolate or vanilla flavor or both). I went with both. It was weak-ass. The pudding never thickened, despite the starchy goodness of arborio rice, so it was just basically sweet milk with rice in it. Meh. I put ground chocolate in half of it. Still meh. I put in some dried strawberries I’ve had soaking in sugar and vodka for a month. Still meh. Though the strawberries were good, if you like eating fruit with an extremely high proof. Overall I’d give the recipe an F- for how unsuccessful it turned out.
Then again, there is no rice pudding better than parboiled rice mixed with sweetened condensed milk to finish cooking, and then liberally flavored with cinnamon and vanilla. I’m telling you. Nothing like it.
Now, for your entertainment, I present you with some pictures of my pets doing weird shit over the past week. And no, none of these were staged. Although the pills were out because Chris was taking pictures of random pills for the medical website he’s building. We’re not sickies, or anything.The first step was getting her to admit she has a problem
