Pressure Cooker Rice Pudding

Pressure Cooker Rice Pudding

My Husband got me an XL Pressure Cooker for Christmas, I am am really enjoying it. This is the 2nd recipe I have made in the Pressure cooker. I love rice pudding and I have only ever made my own recipe but yes it can be time consuming to make. This only took 8 minutes. And let me tell you it’s pretty good stuff and I am very picky when it comes to rice pudding. It creams up once it cools down 

What you need

2 cups Arborio rice
1 cup water
4 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1 cinnamon stick
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt

1. Add all ingredients into the Inner Pot. And give it a good stir to Mix together.

2. Press the Rice button. It automatically sets for 6 mins. but I added 2 more mins. to this and glad I did

3. Place the Lid on the Pressure Cooker and lock. Make sure the Pressure Release Valve is Closed.

4. Sit down and have a drink and relax  

5. Once the Timer reaches 0, the Cooker will automatically switch to KEEP WARM. Press the CANCEL button. Switch the Pressure Release Valve to Open. When the steam is released completely, remove the Lid.

6. Place in serving bowls top with some whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon. We like our warm

7. MMMMMM Enjoy

Are you FREE?

Nobody is truly free, until they no longer have a need to impress people ~Joyce Meyer~

Don’t waste your life trying to impress people to be happy, you will never be free if you do, as the longer you try to impress others the more unhappy you will be. Think of Jesus, he never cared what other thought of him, He went about doing his work and not giving a care to what others thought, He knew what He was doing was RIGHT and that was preaching God’s word. Being a people pleaser will only hurt you, as the more you try to please and impress the more you get hurt, OH dont I know this one, I tried for YEARS to please certain ones in my life and I was always so stressed out, I was never happy, until I learned that I DON’T NEED to do this anymore. Not everyone will do what you want them too, not everyone will think the way you do, no one person is the same. Some people live lives full of bitterness and resentment, and you will NEVER be able to please these types of people. Remember that God did not make you to be a doormat, to be used and abused. Is life really worth walking around stressed out and bitter all the time?? YES you can forgive these people but that does not mean you have to have a relationship with them. I have forgiven many people in my lifetime for the pain they caused me, BUT I do not chose to have a relationship with them, because if I do I will be walking down that same path I did before and for me it is NOT WORTH living like that . Sometime you have to accept that people will not change and you can not change them, MOVE ON. I have STOPPED trying to impress people and please them, I know who I am, I know my heart and so does God and that’s what matters <3
Everyone’s attitude belongs to them and nobody can give you a bad or good attitude, that’s your RESPONSIBILITY and your CHOICE to control. If your going to live a life with a bad negative attitude, then your life is going to be filled with anger and bitterness, if you are going to live life with a happy, carefree, content life, then you are going to have a live FULL of Blessings, its your Choice NO ONE elses. What do you Chose??

 

Where is your Heart?

You may not be perfect, but God is not basing your value on your performance. He’s looking at your heart. He is looking at the fact that you’re trying. Joel Osteen

What is PERFECT anyways?? I don’t think there is anyone in this world that is. We have all made mistakes in the past, BUT God is not holding anything against you. He’s not judging you by your mistakes. He’s not finding fault in you. We are the only ones who find fault in ourselves.
How many time have you said “I’m not worthy, I can’t do it, HOW many times have you believed the lies of others? We are sometimes our own worst enemies.
TODAY I want you to STOP telling yourselves these lies. You need to DECLARE it,
I AM WORTHY, I CAN DO IT, I AM LOVED, I AM BEAUTIFUL <3
So you don’t have a lot of money, or a nice car, or a fancy house, you know what I dont either, BUT I know I am BLESSED in so many other ways its crazy, you need to stop and look at what you do have and STOP putting those negative thoughts in your head. I always think back to “The Help” those famous words “You is Kind, You is smart , You is important” . AND YES YOU ARE, So today start by telling your self these things. Get yourself out of the negative rut you have put yourself in and start by telling yourself these things EVERY DAY. DECLARE IT and see what happens <3
I AM BLESSED
I HAVE ABUNDANCE
I AM SMART
I AM IMPORTANT
I AM BEAUTIFUL
I AM WORTHY
I AM LOVED

If you’ll stay in faith, your dreams will happen sooner than you thought and be bigger than you imagined. That’s the way our God is. ~Joel Osteen~

This one really hit home for me today. I was told this week that my Dad has throat Cancer, we are still waiting for his appointment for the Cancer clinic so we don’t know much about how bad or treatment wise. I was so taken back when he told me (I kind of was not surprised as he has been sick for awhile now) BUT what happened was everything flooded back with what I went threw with my Mom. I was so upset, I needed my Hubby and he was at work, I was going to go find him but I was such a mess I could not drive, I seen the garbage truck and prayed that he was on garbage run that day, as I put on my coat and boots I went out and here he came down the road in the loader. I was so relived to see him, he came in the house for a min and we talked, its funny how God works as I had prayed I needed Barry and there he was <3 I sat by myself that day, in the quiet and thought ok, I cant get worked up, I cant change what is, all I can do is PRAY and HAVE FAITH and put this in God’s hands. Yes my Faith was tested that day, I could have sat and got myself so worked up that I would put myself into a downwards spiral, OR I could Trust in God and put it in His hands as I cant change what is. I wont be bitter, I wont be depressed, I will put it in God’s hands and have FAITH in Him <3 <3 No matter WHAT you are going threw put it in HIm hands and have FAITH <3

Oh this is so true. We all worry and sometime we worry about things we cant change, I know I do, its human nature to worry. BUT sometime we worry so much it can steel our joy. Always remember that things happen for a reason, we may not know that reason at the time, BUT someday it will become clear. When things go wrong, stop and ask your self..can i fix this? If the answer is yes then MAKE the right changes to fix that situation. IF the answer is NO then put it in God’s hands and move on. Worrying about something we have no control of is a waste of your precious time. The take a step back and look at all the Blessing you have around you and focus on the good  <3

Whats your Choice?

God has ways to increase you beyond what is predictable. Stop telling yourself, “This is all there will ever be;” and start declaring, “This is not where I am staying. I am blessed.” Joel Osteen 

I find it so sad that people can be so negative about life, and can cause so much pain for themselves and others. STOP. You need to start filling yourself with positive thoughts. Being negative is POISON and will only steal your joy. If you are one of these people, stop and look at your life, is everything always a BIG deal? Do you get upset at every little thing that happens? Are you mad all the time? 
If so take a step back and see what this is doing to you and the ones around you. You need to STOP all the negativity and replace it with POSITIVITY. The more negative you live you life the more you are missing out on and the Blessing you have been given. You mind and thoughts are very powerful, so STOP being the negative nancy and start to ENJOY the life you have been given, once you bring in those positive thoughts you will see a BIG change.

Stop with the I am not good enough, no one cares talk, STOP, your thoughts and words can become poison, you NEED to start to believe in yourself, BELIEVE you are worth of so many great things in life.  Start with telling yourself you are worthy, you CAN do it, and there are people who are deeply about you. I talk to so many people all the time, and when they are so negative I turn it around and talk positive.  If you are around people who are constantly putting you down then you need to change that. You need to evaluate your worth and not listen to what they are saying. IT ALL START WITH YOU. You are the one who can change this attitude no one else can, only YOU. And you know that deep down these lies you are telling yourself are not true at all. 

I always go back to when my twins were born and when I was told they would never walk, or talk, NOW if I would have listened they would not be where they are today, YES it was a lot of work on my part, but it was SO WORTH IT. Today they are 19, walking talking, and a lot of fun, if I would have believed this to be true they would not be doing these things today.  Life is a choice and how you want to live it, sure I could have chosen to be totally negative on this, thinking negative, and just going with the flow and listen to what i was being told by the doctors, (I am stubborn, if someone tells me I CAN’T do it, I will do everything to prove them wrong) BUT I chose to think differently.  I will never forget the day my Grandma Foster told me, “you know with everything you have gone thru with those boys I have never heard you once complain about it..”. That statement she made, made me stop and think, and I said to her, “Grandma, thats because I believe these boys are a Blessing, I don’t think of it as a negative thing, I believe that I was BLESSED with these boys as God KNEW I could handle it”. For those of you that don’t know, I have 3 special needs kids.  I chose to look at this as a Blessing not a WHY ME pity party.  I will admit YES life can be hard BUT its all on the choices you make and how you are going to live it, and as far as I am concerned there is only 2. 1. you can CHOSE to let all the hurdles you go thew make you negative and bitter or 2. you can CHOSE to look at the Positive in everything you go threw, and YES there is, you can look at it as a Blessing or a curse. The choice is yours. Life is about lessons and learning.  So what are you going to chose?

Manage Stress with a few lifestyle changes:

Image

 

Establish non-food rewards for yourself. Go to a movie, take a class, download a new app, go shopping, play a game, call an old friend.

Practice relaxation and take breaks every day. Breaks from work, difficult tasks and even thinking about your diet.

Exercise regularly. Even as little as a 15 minute walk is enough to boost metabolism and combat stress. If you enjoy gardening, you get to combine two stress relievers in one – exercise and hobby.

Have fun – laugh! Laugh loud! It is hard to be worried when you are having fun. (And it makes everyone else wonder what you are up to.)

Focus on hobbies or interests. A neglected or new hobby can be a reward and something to focus attention from snacks or other unhealthy habits. Not to mention, in a few months you can show off your new skills or project with pride!

Establish support systems. Find a buddy or coach who understands your goals and can be there for support when you feel overwhelmed.

Affirm and reaffirm that you can do this. Write down your goals and celebrate progress. Draw a picture of how you will feel when you achieve your goal.

Get organized and manage your time. Use the time saved from grocery shopping and cooking to tackle a job that is causing you stress.

Pamper you – you are worth it! Fuzzy slippers or a favorite sport event? Relax and do what you want.

Practice saying NO – mean it and stick to it. Say NO to over committing, and anything that can push you too far.

Get enough sleep. Try going to bed just 30-60 minutes earlier. Oh, the energy you will have tomorrow!

Eat healthy, but make sure it is also tasty!

Whats your Story

Image

 

The truth is, people are the way they are for a reason. If we would take time to know their stories, we would be much more forgiving.- Joel Osteen
You know I have been doing this for a year now… I have seen MANY people come and go and come back….one thing I have learned is Everyone has a story…and for some of us our story is full of pain, heartbreak and tragedy…for others they have had a pretty smooth easy happy life… Not sure how God determines what type of path our life will be…. but I can tell you that it is what you make it….if you choose to stay negative then thats what you draw towards you… if you choose to be positive and share love and Faith.. then thats what you will draw… you will be surrounded by a mirror of yourself…
As I was typing this it made me think of a man I was meeting to rent a townhouse (at the time I was a complex manager.) He showed up and I took him on the tour, I was in a hurry as it was late and I just wanted to get home, we started to talk about other things and then he started to cry, he had been threw a very painful separation and just needed someone to listen, I cried with him and I listened to his story, I gave him a huge hug and showed him compassion and just listened to him, we ended up talking for 2 hours and he did rent that place and he would come over often to have coffee and chat, he told me that I should have a sign that says Lisa’s Coffee house and counselling,LOL. he told me that I help him to change his life into a positive one all from that FIRST day showing him his townhouse, and being that one person that listened   Why am I telling you this…cause I want you to slow down and realize everyone has a story… its how you choose to look at life on how your story says THE END  <3 <3

This picture made me tear up and I got this feeling of deep deep sadness in the pit of my stomach. I asked myself WHY? and the answer was instantly at the surface of my emotions. <3 <3

Image

BECAUSE I have been there; I have had that sense of desperation; that sense of hopelessness; that sense of “OMG…I’m way too far gone, what’s the use of trying to lose weight now”, I will stay fat for the rest of my life; then the crying; then the secret you keep inside because of shame; not opening up to anybody; getting in my car to go buy more junk food to comfort myself from what had made me this way to begin with; vicious vicious circle. I’m sure I am not alone. So, Wow!! this picture really resonated with me which gave me a wake up call. Holly, lose what you have to lose NOW before you get back to that desperate sad hopeless place. Never again.

SO WE ALL START SOMEWHERE. Don’t shrink your DREAM, super SIZE your courage. Tough times don’t last but tough people DO! No matter who you are or where you are at, you GOT this! We are turning our struggles into our strengths one day at a time… NEVER give up, and NEVER back down!! <3 xoxo <3

CHANGE YOUR Life & Health too!!! –>http://spiritoftheearth.thenewyearschallenge.com/

Know your Blessings

You may not feel blessed, but you need to call yourself blessed. Start calling yourself healthy, whole, strong, full of energy and full of life. Joel Osteen 

How true is this, we all go thru hard times, BUT we can’t let that steal our joy and blessings, we have many that are around us and we need to look at the Blessing we have. Life will try to steal our joy, BUT its our CHOICE whether we allow it to. No matter what you are going thru there IS light at the end of the tunnel, Just remember to make the choice to see the Blessing you have already <3
