A Few Mini Vacations...

I haven't been much in the mood to blog lately. Don't know why because I'm not down or blue. I think I just feel boring. There's not much going on in my life to write about. So if I'm not around for a while here and there, not to worry. I'm still reading and commenting on your blogs just not writing one of my own very often.

And mentioning commenting...I was reading and "trying" to comment on blogs on Monday and for some reason the word verification wouldn't work on blogspot. Think they have it fixed now because I just tried it this morning and it's working again. So if you were expecting me to comment on your blogs earlier and I didn't, at least I tried.

I do have one question for anyone out there that may have tried this. Has anyone tried to make puddings with soy milk instead of whole milk? And did it work? I've been dying for some rice pudding and I have the egg beaters and Splenda to use as substitutes, but don't know if the soy milk will work. I may just try it anyway. I've got Dinah Shore's recipe and it is just wonderful. I did set down last night and work out the calorie difference and it will only be 90 calories (instead of 200+) for a half cup. That's the way I always ate it before, 1/2 cup here and there and it usually lasts me a week. If it works I'll post the recipe.

Off to make some cheese biscuits for breakfast.

I've never cooked with soy milk so I don't have any tips about that but it seems like it would work. Please share your version of Dinah's recipe if it works out. Yum!

I love it when you cook and tell us about it. And I never find you boring so post when you feel like it...we'll be here!

Did you tell us why you use soy milk. Does cows milk bother you? Just wondered. My daughter is having milk issues. I had problems with word verification too. Crazy.

I don't know about soy milk - but I've used Almond milk to make puddings - so its possible you can. I would say that a quick google search should bring up some results!

You are certainly not boring! I love hearing about your life on the mountain ... and have wistful dreams thinking about life on a mountain. Soy milk isn't too bad but I prefer Hood Calorie Countdown milk when I need milk. The chocolate HCC is especially good!
