I found myself making rice pudding one day early in quarantine, because what we all need right now is a rosy, cinnamon-y, creamy dessert of carbs and dairy. It is a nostalgic comforting dessert for me that reminds me of my mother and grandmother and a simpler time. It is also a bit of a time consuming process that requires a lot of slow stirring to ensure that the milk doesn't boil too much or burn and ruin the whole dish. Given that I found myself stuck at the stove and starting to get a bit stir crazy, I decided to go live on instagram and see what might happen!
I am the last person you might expect to start an IG live. I don't like being in the spotlight and I am definitely nowhere near being any sort of influencer. I didn't really expect anyone to join, but what ensued was about 30 minutes of chatting with two of my good friends, my cousin, and my sister. We talked about the rice pudding, my cats, and all sorts of other things. It was a fun break of character for me and I found that I actually quite enjoyed the experience. Who knows? I might just choose to do it again in the near future.
