Quick Rice Pudding in the Crockpot


We had so much left over, cooked rice from our Thai take out, that I found myself searching Pinterest for a easy and quick way to use it. My issue with my eye has me feeling somewhat nauseous, due to medication and blurred vision, so something soothing and comforting like old fashioned rice pudding sounded perfect. This recipe, for the crock pot, was very simple and just required mixing all the ingredients together, putting the mixture in the crock pot and letting it cook on high for only 2 hours. Definitely an easy recipe when you are not feeling well. It tasted wonderful - very creamy and with flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg. I used golden raisins and they were a delicious addition. The original pin and recipe can be found here.

I head back to the ophthamologislat this morning to see if there has been any improvement. That should give an idea for further treatment. I am hoping for good news :-)

Have a great day!
