So I've been REALLY sick and when i say REALLY sick, I mean it.
Let's just say my fever has not feigned for days and while I have been forced to continue attending all of my classes, I am definitely falling apart.
I definitely have not worn make up for five days, but the upside is that my skin is TOTALLY clear. Funny how things work.
Lucky for Adam, even though my recent make-up strike has done me well I do not plan on retiring the make up bag anytime soon considering that I have felt like a complete nasty sickly bum for the last week. As I face what appears to be the end of my illness I am looking forward to enjoying all of my Summer clothes and flip flops in addition to all of the cute hairdos I've been finding on pinterest.
Anyways, I give you first... RECIPE TUESDAY.
Since I have been on my death bed for the last week I haven't cooked at all. No joke. Poor Adam.
BUT we did make our own horchata a couple weeks ago that was totally fab.
The recipe calls for rum, but due to our Mormon-ness obviously we didn't spike it.
1 cup uncooked long grain rice
2 quarts warm water
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 1/4 cups milk
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup rum, or to taste (optional)
16 cubes ice
Mix the rice and warm water together in a bowl, and let stand for 1/2 hour. Reserving the water, drain, and place the rice in the bowl of a food processor. Add the cinnamon and process until a paste forms. Return the rice to the water and let stand at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally as the water turns milky white.
Strain the rice through a fine sieve into a bowl or pitcher. Stir in the milk, condensed milk, vanilla, and rum, if desired, until evenly blended. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
To serve, divide the ice cubes between four glasses, and pour the chilled horchata over the ice.
ENJOY. Make sure you use a food processor, our lame Wal-Mart blender didn't do so well. I guess it is time to have my mom send our food processor up here.
And here is YouTube Wednesday! We definitely laughed at this and watched the whole thing. Check it out here.
Okay friends tomorrow is Awkward and Awesome Thursday :) Get excited.
Love, the sickly version of Evi
