Get Nostalgic With This Amazing Old-Fashioned Rice Pudding!


The other day, I was in a frenzy.  I had to prep my kids for a doctor’s appointment, get my shower in, do a little work before we leave and finish up making lunch for my husband to take to work.  It was a crazy morning, to say the least.  I was having such a hard time keeping everything up and well, with the kids being sick and all, I knew it was not going to look any better for the rest of the day.  When I noticed my husband was done showering, I asked him to please give each of our kids a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast.  I told him it was in the fridge because I had prepared it last night.

Well, my kids are not huge oatmeal fans, but it is good for them.  I knew they might give a hard time, but seeing as they are sick, they might just forget about the oatmeal and just eat it.  I heard not one complaint.  I tiptoed downstairs and looked in the kitchen to see three happy kids munching away on their oatmeal. I mean, they were almost done! I asked my husband what in the world he did to that oatmeal and he said nothing.  As I stepped closer, I realized what it was he had given them…
