I ruined bread pudding.
I thought I was so smart.
So doggone amazing.
I used leftover donuts/doughnuts (spelling your choice) and added some apple pie filling to make apple cinnamon bread pudding...
Sigh. Big sigh.... Great taste, awful pasty consistency.
I am particular about my bread pudding. I like it firm.... I like it in a strong egg custard base, not too milky because I don't want it soggy, so when I got home tonight and had some:
Yep. All of the above. And I should have known because donuts are cake and cake gets soggy in milk but I didn't think of that.... I just thought of using up those stale donuts and making folks happy.
Well... I used 'em up, all right! :)
I'll be making it again, with just stale bread and my standby recipe and no apples. I've got nowhere to go but up right now!!!!
In other news on the SUCCESS bandwagon, "At Home in Wishing Bridge" released today! And yes, if you click on that link, you go straight to my friends at Amazon and you can buy it!! :)
|Amazon/Waterfall Press sent me this gorgeous framed print of my cover... for my office wall. Isn't that a cool thing to do?|
Oh, happy day!
I'm so excited to have this story out and I hope folks love it the way the loved "Welcome to Wishing Bridge" last November.
And we have sold a lot of mums. Like a LOT.... and two days of rain Monday and Tuesday allowed me time to do a few things in the house and writing. Another big weekend coming up, Columbus Day weekend with an extra day off Friday for Superintendent's conference day so I'm expecting a busy four days.... So I'm making jams now and I'll start baking on Thursday for the weekend. Here are some farm pics from two weeks ago...
Farmer Dave tying half-bales of hay for customers. A lot of folks don't want to use a big bale, so we cut them in half... and tie them half bales! And then they fit in the big refuse bags so we don't mess up their cars!
She's selling cups of cider for $1.00
Normally she's in that chair.... but not at this moment!
Only a few more weeks of crazy farm fun and then the relative peace of short days, very long nights and ol' man winter will slip into our neck of the woods.... and more writing time.
I am totally psyched about more writing time!!!!
Although it's easier to maintain weight when you're working outside for hours every day. Hmm....
But we'll face that dilemma next month!
That's it from the farm where I am the Writer in Residence.
Well, that's because I live here, LOL!
