Its very rare that I have the exact ingredients as the source but this time, I did…I think anyway. I used canned coconut milk , not the mylk type in a carton so my pudding was probablly more flavorful. I also used maple syrup not honey and used less. In retrospect, the sweetner might not be missed if eliminated altogether.( I can’t find the source tbat I used but this is the same recipe.)
I chilled this for a full day which is much nicer than a short chill that many recipes suggest. I love rice pudding very much but in eating less grains and sugars, have avoided it. My family always added just a drop of rose water to rice pudding so I suggest adding that here too.
Meanwhile, I have concluded that my Facebook fast is the best thing I have ever done. Once or twice in the last few days, I felt the itch- mainly because my “liked” pages were a collection of good news sources, but I can use their websites instead. The friends who communicated with me there regularly are now texting me or using Messenger which one can have as a stand alone without Facebook. Its working out just fine.
However, while I have begun to knit again, I have not begun the other activities I need to do yet. I hope that today will be different.
I set two goals during my palliative care appointment- well actually four, but two pertain to my withdrawal from Facebook: Art and Exercise! Do them. Daily!
Easier said than done but do them I must!
I hope that today, I will.
How to break through these creative blocks ? How to convalesce , not just from a long winter but one in which I was bedridden for half the time? We will soon find out. Suggestions welcome.
