Rice Pudding Recipe

The earth is the Lord’s, and all things therein

Psalm 24:1

Ingredients:

  • 14 ounces Whole Milk
  • 4 ounces Rice
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 ounce Raisins (almost one small box)
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Banana

Mix milk, rice, raisins and cinnamon together in a pot and bring to a boil, while stirring a bit. Lower flame, cover while stirring occasionally till rice is all softened, add a little more milk if needed, about 30 minutes. Add butter and let it melt in. Smash in banana leaving some lumps.  Serve.

Cooking the rice in milk takes a lot longer than in water and the banana gives it a Caribbean feel. Adapted from cafedelites.com/easy-cinnamon-raisin-rice-pudding/

Because His compassions fail not.

Great is Your faithfulness.
24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”

Immediate Obedience

“And as He walked by the Sea of Galilee, He saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. Then Jesus said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” They immediately left their nets and followed Him.

When He had gone a little farther from there, He saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the boat mending their nets. And immediately He called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants, and went after Him.”                 Mark 1:16-20
