I made my first rice milk today, and am pleased with the results. I used the recipe from here but modified it a little:
1. Place in dry TMX bowl and grind:
- 50g rice
- 30g raw almonds
2. Add, and cook at 60 degrees, 5 mins, speed 4:
- 1 litre water
- 1 T apricot kernel oil
- squeeze of honey
- pinch of salt
3. Puree on speed 9 for 1 minute then strain into jug.
I used the leftover thick bits in a leftover rice pancake batter I made up next.
I think this might be our first smile on camera! I took this on the way out for a Valentine's Breakfast with Dh that included a surprise babysitter! Dh had organised for our lovely receptionist to meet us at breakfast for a coffee then take the Baby while we had a leisurely meal and a little shop afterwards!

Ginger Rose had her first ballet lesson yesterday after begging for lessons for the last couple of years. Sadly, shopping was difficult with a new baby so she didn't have the requisite pale pink headband to keep her hair out of her face but I think she still looked gorgeous and there were plenty of other little girls in pink with assorted hairclips for the first week.
I was so sleep deprived that after the lesson (during which the Little Prince and the New Baby went for a walk to a nearby playground) I drove off leaving the baby's pusher neatly parked beside the car. Fortunately it was still there an hour later...
