A 26 year old woman blamed her GPS when her SUV got stuck going down a flight of stairs at a parking garage. Police seem to think it was her excessive blood alcohol level!
Sad but funny...

Pretty simple. When you see the same photo appear on 2 different profiles... you have the answer.

A third profile appeared.
Someone is using photos of media celebrity Lena the Plug.
Maybe Jada should have been slapped...

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett appear at the Oscars ceremony and comedian Chris Rock jokingly comments about Jada's hair loss. Will walks up to the stage and slaps Chris and shouts obscenities.

A joke gone too far? Obviously, there is something deeper than a joke.
While it's been a few weeks since the incident, the repercussions aren't over.

Rice Pudding...

I've been wanting to make rice pudding for a while now.

This is a takeoff on my previous blog about the Venezuelan Chicha, a drink made with cooked rice, milk and ice cubes.

We had terrible weather today and I decided to stay home and try a twist on an old recipe.
I took 2 cups of cooked rice, a glass of whole milk, 3 eggs, 2 spoons of condensed milk, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, a few sprinkles of cinnamon, 1 squirt of honey.
With the whole thing in a blender, I had to stop a few times to mix it with a spoon as it was very thick... I could have added more milk but wanted it to come out thick.

30 minutes in an oven at 325 and the top started to darken. I allowed it to cool and tried a few spoonfuls.

The results were: Success!!

Venezuelan Chicha...

I did a blog on another site about rice pudding. It's something my mother was good at making. The recipe involved rice, whole milk, cinnamon, vanilla extract and (if I remember correctly) an egg or two.
She would cook the rice first, then add it to a large 'oven safe' bowl and bake it until the top started to brown.

One of the comments to my blog was from an English speaking woman from Venezuela who linked a YouTube video of a cold recipe for rice pudding called Chicha.

In the recipe they took cooked rice, sugar, water, milk, condensed milk, cinnamon and ice cubes. Most of it was done in a blender and the ice cubes added after.

I cut lots of corners, leaving out the sugar and ice cubes. It was in the blender for a few rounds as I needed to add more milk so it would pour.

I was good... the flavor was different than the cooked version of rice pudding, but it was quick and easy!

Room temperature...

How do you calculate room temperature?
It depends on the room. South Florida had a cold front move through this weekend with freezing temperatures across the state. Currently, it is 39F outside and the temperature inside is 64, mostly due to the high winds blowing into the jalousie window in my front door.

My door faces the north and cold fronts normally come from the north. If you put your hand near the jalousie you can feel the wind passing through the glass slats.
I know, that is not very energy efficient in the summer especially when the cool air escapes from inside.
