This Food Friday post is long overdue, mostly because my mom was visiting this weekend (we went to see "Jersey Boys"...it was good, but it was no "Wicked") so I didn’t get a chance to write anything but also because, well, there isn’t that much to say about rice pudding. That’s right - the new food of last week was rice pudding or rizogalo as the Greeks call it.
|It's not even photogenic!|
My pals Trix, Richmond, Lonestar, and I took advantage of the spring-like temps on Friday and went to one of our favorite lunch places. I got my usual - steak and cheese, which is similar in spirit to a cheesesteak but not really authentic enough for me to call it an actual cheesesteak. But it’ll do. Especially since there’s not a Jersey Mike’s close to my office. In addition to my steak and cheese, I ordered the rice pudding for dessert. This is actually pretty significant – this is the first dessert ever for Food Friday! So, let’s give rice pudding some love for that distinction alone! Woo-hoo, go rice pudding!
It was pudding-y and rice-y. And there was cinnamon on top. I ate two spoonfuls and then sealed it up to "save for later." It’s still sitting in my fridge. I think rice pudding might also be the first thing on a Food Friday that I can categorically state, I will never eat again. I’m sticking to my usual chocolate pudding from JELL-O.
As an added bonus, my mom and I went out to dinner with my friends/neighbors Semper Fi and Scruffy (formerly known as Scrapper) and I tried some cream of crab soup that was pretty delicious. So Food Friday was 1 for 2…hey, I’m not gonna like everything I try! But the important thing is that I keep putting food in my mouth and chewing!
