Rice pudding and a little more

January 4th, 2011 at 04:14 pm

Hello! I'm enjoying myself reading all of your blogs and especially like that we have new bloggers. Good luck to all with your saving goals and debt repayment. As for me, I keep navigating the seas of frugality. I ordered another $25 Amazon gift card using Chase rewards. Once I get it and apply it to my Amazon account, I'll have $330.


So I made sweet and sour pork chops over a bed of white rice, one of our favorite things to have for dinner, and I happened to have about 4 cups left of white rice. Sometimes the white rice goes to waste (you think I would cook less of it), but it dawn on me that I can make rice pudding. I did a quick search and came up with a wonderful recipe. I had all of the ingredients and I'm happy to say that this recipe is a keeper! It was so tasty. Here is a picture:

Last Saturday I also made the butterhorn dinner rolls recipe from Crystal at moneysavingmom.com. The recipe yields 32 rolls and I think that all together I spend $3 to make them. I froze the majority of them and they are super delicious also.


The upstairs tenant was only able to pay $700 of the $965 rent. He is not working, but he told us that he'll have the remainder by Friday. I'm NOT complaining, at least he is making an effort and I hate to have to look for a tenant in the winter. That's life; you have to take the good with the bad. Luckily we don't have a mortgage on this property. I just hope things get better for this family (they have a toddler).

Happy "Hump" (Wednesday)!
