I had a lot of milk in the fridge and I do not drink milk (haven't since about third grade when I got sick and blame the combination of a tuna sandwich and milk for lunch). I buy it for my son to have milk and cookies. I am lactose intolerant and I did not want to waste the milk so I decided to make tapioca pudding. I usually make it on top of the stove stirring it for about 15 minutes (I read as I stir to help pass the time). However, this time I made the tapioca in the microwave. I cooked it for 12 minutes, stirring every three minutes. The end result was the same as the stove top version. I add raisins, cinnamon/nutmeg and vanilla. I forgot the cinnamon but I now add a little orange extract along with the vanilla extract. It adds a nice taste to it-light and sweet. It is so good for my stomach. I definately will be making this again.
