This is just about the best thing I've made in,
I was hankering for a little something.
It was past lunch time, and there was no bread and no milk.
Not really knowing what I was hungry for, and not having much in the way of possibilities, I looked at the leftover rice from last night's dinner and THEN I saw the egg nog. It was like it started communicating with me.
Crack an egg.
Whip it up (I used a fork) in an over-sized microwave-safe cereal bowl.
Add egg nog. I didn't measure. It probably made about a cup of liquid.
Whisk that up together, and sprinkle on some cinnamon and nutmeg.
Again, I'm sorry, but I didn't measure. I was just going with the inspiration.
Here's where it got going.
I added enough rice to fill up about 3/4 of the bowl, and stirred it so the liquid incorporated itself into the rice.
Put the bowl in the microwave for 5 minutes on high.
Try not to touch it for about five more minutes, if you can stand it, because the bowl is HOT.
And then the food Gods smiled down upon me: I was able to squirt just enough whipped cream out of the bottom of the can to cover the top of the--what shall we call this?--rice-y custard-y dream to make it my gift to myself.
You should try it.
