When I was a little girl the lady that lived with us, to watch over my brother and I, used to make this for us for breakfast and it was so yummy! Once in your bowl, you can add a little bit of milk if you want. We liked this so much more than cold cereal or oatmeal and the raisins give it a natural sweet flavor!
Cook rice according to package instructions but stir in the raisins before cooking. It's that simple

In E. Tx, this is a dessert. No wonder y'all like it :o) Your talking about your Nanny reminded me; for a few months when I was learning to talk and visiting my aunt and uncle at the Guantanamo Naval Base, in Cuba, she hired a young woman to entertain me a few hours a day. Later she apologized that she thought she was so busy doing her officer-wife's duties and writing a column for the local newspaper.
For me, it was an experience of a lifetime; I came home speaking Spanish, learned so much and retain a love for the Cuban people. My grandmother wanted us youngsters to call her Nanny. She lived with us or we lived with her, take yer pick. She took care of us while Mom worked, taught me how to make southern foods and enriched our lives. Such good memories.
