Food for the Body. Food for the Mind. Food for the Soul.

This doesn’t have much to do with anything… but it made me giggle.

Bought some cinnamon sticks for the first time in awhile the other day. Here they are. 

It's hard to tell by this pic, but there is NO WAY a cinnamon stick could fit through one of these holes.

Why are there shaker holes? Am I supposed to sprinkle sticks of cinnamon on things?

Do your sticks have shaker holes too?

Hey, and while you’re in the kitchen with your cinnamon out, you should a couple sticks in with 4 cups of water & one cup of brown rice so you can make some of this Horchata tomorrow… It’s SO yummy.

I made it last night after my Cinco de Mayo feast. It requires a little planning ahead though since the rice has to soak for at least 8 hours, but it’s worth the wait. 

Here’s what you do next:

After 8 hours, get rid of those pesky sticks and put the water and rice in a blender. Blend for 5 minutes. Pass through a fine mesh sieve a couple times to get the rice chunkies out. When your rice milk is chunk-free  stir in 1 Cup of skim milk, 1/3 Cup agave syrup, a splash of vanilla, and some more cinnamon (the kind you can actually sprinkle) to taste.

Pour over ice, and what the heck…. why not throw some more cinnamon on the top.

Nummy.
