TV/AC ~ Run Hide Fight ~ Rice Pudding ~ S'mores Day

Good 50ยบ clear morning. It's 8-10-12!
This is not good...
My AC guy, John will be here this afternoon. Thank God!
Here is a very intense video produced by the Houston Texas PD. A lesson for everyone.... I am still going, "Wow".... this is good to know, but it sure makes you frightened! We ALL need to be carrying!!! Take cover and take aim!
Since yesterday was Rice Pudding Day I decided to make some. Jeannie gave me her mom's recipe, but it cooks in the oven and it's too hot (especially without AC) to start up the oven. So......I found a recipe that cooks in the crockpot, and slightly modified it.

1 cup long or medium grain white rice
3/4 cup sugar
3 ½ cups milk
1 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. vanilla
1/3 c melted butter
pitted dates or raisins


Mix all the ingredients, except the butter, in a cooking sprayed or buttered crockpot. Pour the butter over the top. Cook on high for 2½ - 3 hours.
I know rice pudding sometimes has raisins, but didn't have any so added some chopped pitted dates. At the end of 2½ hours I stirred all the ingredients. At 3 hours I turned off the crockpot and took off the lid to let it cool. OMG it's soooooooooooo good~!!!!!!! I could have eaten it all in one sitting!
Ahhhh haaa .... the DirecTV guy, Seth, was here yesterday and installed a new DVR box. YEAH! TV again in the living room!!!!
Thought this kitty was cute and funny:
Look, it's a polydactyl cat too!
Speaking of kitties... I haven't seen Bruiser since I fed him Wednesday night. I am so very worried and scared something awful has happened to him.
