oh!! my dear ol’ dad used to make those. I don’t remember his recipe but ooh I loved them. I used to eat them topped with lots of ketchup[:I]. I wish I had gotten that recipe and his other recipe for atol� de arroz (rice oatmeal) that was made with Pet milk, cinnamon sticks, rice, water?? It was all boiled in a pot until tender then I’d add milk and sugar.
I used ketchup on mine, too, and loved them! Your rice dish sounds delicious, too. Almost like the rice pudding Mom would make. [8D]
