Pina Colada Rice Pudding, or Rice Porridge. Wait, what time is it…?

I’ll warn you in advance, I may be in a mood, I may be writing stream of consciousnesses right now, I may not feel like editing tonight, I may get a bit random. On the other hand, I may not. It’s kind of like roulette. However the outcome is tropical and sunny so I’ll try not to frighten you too much up front, ok? Great.

I always have leftover rice. Always. This situation is  primarily due to cooking a full cup of dry rice no matter how much we need – every single time.  But the leftovers get tossed in anything from a clearing-out-the-crisper-fried-rice to a frittata to a soup, so I may as well have it on hand.

Now we know I love my oats for breakfast, however sometimes I want something else that is not oats, but is still porridge-like. Quinoa has been known to make an appearance from time to time but one morning I decided to see what would happen if I threw some leftover brown rice in a pan with fruit and milk. Cheats rice porridge is what happened. It’s like eating dessert for breakfast, but healthy. Win, big win.
