Now here’s a strange coincidence.
Last Friday – 9th of August – I had a sudden desire to make a rice pudding for dessert after dinner. I don’t think I have made one for at least eighteen months ( or more) but being quick & simple to make one was duly prepared. Nothing fancy, just a standard rice pudd with vanilla, nutmeg and a nice brown skin on the top – went down well.
— so whats the point of this story you ask?
The point is that the next day I mentioned it to someone and they informed me that ..
9th of August was
NATIONAL RICE PUDDING DAY!
& if you don’t believe it
