I finally got around to making your coconut tapioca pudding on Friday. It was soooo good. DH loved it. I did make it with organic milk because he doesn’t like soymilk. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Thanks for writing, Stephanie! For those who were not with me in February, the recipe is called LynnH’s Sinful Coconut/Vanilla Tapioca Pudding and I made it in late February as a treat for myself. I can’t have regular milk so I used soy milk and coconut milk. Hey, let’s face it: adding fat to sweets makes them taste better! Coconut milk has fat (some say it’s a bad fat, some say it’s good) and it tastes wonderful. It’s so rich I can’t make pudding with just coconut milk, so I either add soy milk or rice milk to thin it down some… usually soy, for an added small bit of protein.

I should make some tomorrow. I rode my bike to Foster and then home the long way today, and my tummy hurts. I think I just rode too hard and was not used to it, but who knows what it really is. Tapioca pudding would taste great, as long as it doesn’t get too hot here to enjoy it.

I took some photos of Lansing’s beautiful River Trail today when bicycling. However, I am going to rest this tummy for now and show you the pictures some other day.

In knitting news, I am blocking the sox for my friend right now, they may get mailed tomorrow. After she gets them and has seen them, I will post a picture of those as well. I’m only about 7 rows from finishing the blues and greens stole, too. I’ll have it to show off at the demo day at JoAnn’s on Saturday, from 1pm to 3pm (I think I said 4pm earlier but I was wrong).

Music news for local folks: Please do come see Brian and I play as The Fabulous Heftones at Altu’s restaurant this Saturday. Time is 6:30-8:30.

We are excited that for the Altu’s gig, I was interviewed for the Lansing State Journal‘s What’s On section which was published today (Thursday). If you didn’t get one today, it can be picked up for free all week at State Journal Headquarters, downtown on Lenawee street one block east of Washington.

THANK YOU to Sarah Stollak, What’s On columnist, who interviewed me last Friday. She did a good job of distilling what I said into three paragraphs or so, and put our picture in as well! (Sarah is a knitter and musician, as well as a writer.) Her column (minus our picture, but you have already seen that) is on the http://lsj.com website (I searched for “Heftone”).
