Saturday Recipe Swap- Old Fashioned Rice Pudding

Yesterday was my clean-out-the-refrigerator-check-which-leftovers-I-can-turn-into-dinner-tonight day. One of the leftovers I had was about 2 1/2 to 3 cups of cooked white rice. I knew I wouldn't be using it as part of our dinner (believe it or not, Brian requested a frozen pizza for dinner so he could eat the leftovers for lunch while I am out today), but I also didn't want to just get rid of it. I went looking through one of my many cookbooks to see how I could use the leftover rice as something completely different from how I would usually use it. The recipe that caught my eye was this one from Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook p. 238. Quick, easy and it passed the Brian likes it test!
