Rice Pudding

Do you ever find yourself with 3 cups of leftover rice in your fridge? Oh, you don't? OK, never mind I thought I was normal.

Well if you ever should, here is something yummy to do with it... I think this is from Joy of Cooking:

3 c. cooked rice
4 c. milk
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

In a large heavy pot, combine rice, milk and sugar. Heat over medium, stirring constantly (especially towards the end), for 20-30 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

Greek Salad

I just made this Greek salad, except instead of tomatoes, green bell pepper and red onion, I used red and yellow bell pepper, white onion (that had been in the fridge so not as spicy), and jicama. I also added some orzo.

It is so tasty! I made it for dinner tonight, perfect for a hot summer day...but I want to eat it all right now. This is a problem.
