I'm baking brown rice pudding at this very moment. I substituted Splenda for the little bit of sugar in the original recipe in Jane Brody's Good Food Book. I have always loved the recipes in this book. Jane Brody emphasizes whole grains and minimizes sugar and fat but the recipes are normal food, not "diet food." A couple of weeks ago, I made some oat bran muffins that even the kids liked! (They are not muffin fans, which bewilders me.)
At any rate, I'll let you know how the pudding turns out. If it's good, I'll share the recipe.
I finally remembered this afternoon to move my 18-pound turkey from the freezer to the fridge. I bought two turkeys, so far, and may buy another one. You just can't beat the price of turkey at this time of year. And even though people associate turkey with Thanksgiving and Christmas, I like to make turkey at other times, too.
Today marks my 99th consecutive day of exercise! (And when I say "exercise", I mean aerobic exercise mainly.) Even on my most rushed day, I fit in thirty minutes on the exercise bike. On a normal day, I ride for 45-minutes. I alternate the "fat-burning" setting with the "intervals." To exercise my mind, I'm also reading Henry James' Portrait of a Lady, which at this point, annoys me, even as it stretches my brain muscles. (Isabel Archer seems to have no sense, if you ask me.)
With that, I think I'll head upstairs and sweat and read and finish my 99th day. Later, pudding!
