We have a kitty
I've been uselessly lazy this weekend, and this was what I got accomplished. She is starting to look more like a pretty little girl, and not so much like a design from "A Christmas Story." They are calling for snow tonight into tomorrow--I don't remember the last time we had snow in March--so I may have more time to work on her. I am off tomorrow to take the car in, but I ain't driving 40 miles in the snow. Not at all. I'll just regroup. I'm good at that.
And stitch . . .
I'm off to attempt to make Indian rice pudding. I think it's a good dessert for a wintry night, warm scented, slightly tropical, totally comfort food. Funny how I live in an ethnically diverse area and yet, it has been extremely difficult to gather together the ingredients to make kheer. This is not an exotic recipe, just basmati rice, cardamom, and coconut milk. They don't sell coconut milk at my local Safeway. It took me a while to find a decent sized bag of basmati rice--we will never eat 20 pounds of rice, NOT AT ALL. And thank God the cardamom was on sale, because it is not cheap. But it smells so good. I had the container in my purse, and it smelled so strong, I thought the lid came off. But it was just yummy smelling. So we'll see how this goes.
