Retro from leftovers!

Weekend in a bit! Who’s excited?

How has the week been? Tell me all about it in the comment section.

Confession Time. Shhhhhhh

I have been on an eating spree all week. Back to back. But i made sure to pay close attention to the caloric content.

If there’s one food I’m very sure you’ve eaten this week it’s RICE! Call me a seer.(lol)

I mean who doesn’t eat rice. Except my former roommate tho. Rolls eye. Banke catch your sub.

How can you not like rice? And judging by the fact that you are Nigerian. It’s like our signature food in this countryπŸ˜‚. A must eat for every family.

There’s this thing that is apparent in every Nigerian home and I’m sure you agree big time. Leftover meals for breakfast especially rice.

In my house gan my Mom deliberately cooks excess rice if we are to have it for dinner.

She does that so we can reheat the leftover for a pre breakfast meal.

Yes! That meal that you eat before you make the actual breakfast. Drop your favourite emoji in the comment section if you can relate with this.

Even if my Mom do that all the time I’m no longer affected cos I found the perfect way to transform that leftover rice into something awesome.

Turning it into the perfect rice pudding.

I feel like this is the best recepie that could work for me. You could as well try it out or cook your rice from the scratch.

I mean why waste good when there’s already leftover rice. If you want to make it from the scratch that works too.

Making it is relatively easier than you think.

It takes about 25 to 30 minutes for four servings.

You will need;

  • 2 cups cooked long grain rice (short groan too might do the trick)
  • 2 cups whole milk preferably evaporated milk
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar

Basically you just pour everything into the pot and allow to cook but close attention must be paid to avoid it getting burnt.


You could bake it in an oven. It is a decadent and creamy rice pudding recipe that you can serve either as a sweet breakfast or for dessert. Just mix and heat everything together on the stovetop for 5 minutes then stick in the oven for about 20 minutes or so.

And your pudding is set!

So I got quite a number of entries for suggested topics on the blog. And I’m gonna give room for more.

You want me to talk about something, you know how we do it. Drop it in the comment section.

I love you all and I see you soon.
