Arroz Con Leche?

Life Tips

http://bakinghistory.files.wordpress.com/2008/01/arroz-con-leche-ii.jpg

You know, my mom always told me that cooking always make her smile. She was the one who inspired this blog today. I was making some grub… Yes, I love cooking. And I was looking at my mom picture in my kitchen of her cooking… I remember that she use to smile a lot growing up and she felt wanted and needed when she was making us food. Now, I’m happy when she makes arroz con leche and I will attempt to head over to the hood and pick some up.

But sometimes, I just make my own. So why Arroz con Leche? What is this… its like rice pudding with out the pudding. Its a hot rice milky substance… anyway. This is something I think of when I’m feeling sick, in a low mood (no I’m not in a low mood ya) and when I just want to feel close to my mom or my family. You see… My mom made it for us and still does during the cold season… YUM! We woke up or come home from school and have some Arroz con leche. It is the bomb drink, its like having oat meal, but with rice and much tasty-er.

So why am I writing about this? Well… because I figure I’d tell you my most fav drink in the world, and because Arroz con Leche is part of my culture and this is my way I pay tribute to my heritage… with arroz con Leche (translated, milk and rice).   Yum. I think I’m going to make some now…

Have a great day!

Smile (if you want)

Ingredients:
1 cup of rice.
4 cups of water.
1 cinnamon stick
1 liter of milk 
1/2 pound of sugar
1 tsp of grounded cinnamon
Bring the water to boil, add the rice, cinnamon stick. Let it cook at low heat, stirring occasionally. When the rice is cooked add milk and sugar and let it simmer. Keep on stirring. Cook it to liking. I like mines a bit watery because I like to have it like an atol (thick hot yummy drink). Some people like to add raisins.. I don’t. Some people sprinkle Cinnamon, I do and some nutmeg. Yumm-e! Enjoy!

  1. I don’t remember liking this as a child. The consistency seems so close to oatmeal – which grossed me out as a child. So I probably did not. But I’ve learned to love oatmeal, so maybe I’ll like this now. Because it looks really good and on a cold snowy night – it probably hits the spot.
