I'll share more about Mr. M very soon, I promise. But first this is what I did last Saturday night. Now it may sound like an old timey recipe… but don’t knock it till you try it. I promise it is exceptional. Oh, what is it? Bread Pudding: Now I know it doesn’t look like pudding and it’s more like a moist cake consistency; but it is so tasty! My mom’s recipe is what I still use today… improvising sometimes by adding in choc chips, pecans or even bananas to kick it up a notch. But Saturday I made it just like it is… plain bread pudding with cinnamon and nutmeg. MMMMMMhMMMM good.
Oh in case someone out there MIGHT want the recipe, here ya go:
2 cups milk
2 cups bread crumbs
1 ½ cups of sugar
½ cup butter (melted)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix up your liquids and the spices first then add in the bread crumbs. Continue mixing everything and then pour into your 9 X 12 baking dish. Heat at 350˚ for 45 minutes (don’t forget to preheat). It’s done if a toothpick comes out clean. Let it cool or eat warm with ice cream.
Now you know I am not much of a cook, but it’s not that I can’t do it; I just have to get inspired. You know like for a big family get-together or such. But when I wanted to taste this treat… I didn’t mind pulling out the ingredients and getting to it. Plus it takes about 15 minutes to get everything mixed together and another 45 for baking. You can’t beat that.
I like to put it in a bowl and add a little milk while it is warm. But I can eat it cold, hot, lukewarm, on a summer day or a winter day, by myself or with family, watching the super bowl or watching a movie, standing on my head or laying on the couch, talking on the phone with a new friend (while they are talking, of course) or while working on my blog. Yeah I like it that much.
What do you do on a Saturday night at home?
Find yourself… keeping it real.
