Another bread pudding today, a sweet chocolate version this time, made easily in the slow cooker.
So I started writing this post and it went along the lines of “We often have leftover bread in this house…” etcetera etcetera. Then I decided it was in danger of becoming the most boring post yet. You all know why we make bread pudding. Yes, it’s a great way of using up stale bread. And sometimes we make it because we just want a nice, substantial, filling pudding to scoff. Like today for example. I am so so glad that I double checked my recipe and made another test batch before posting this. I am really looking forward to warming some up in the microwave this evening and digging in while binge watching Revenge. I have a cold. I don’t know how I managed it but I did. I felt the beginnings of it last night with a scratchy throat, which has now developed into a full-blown barbed-wire-effect sore throat that even Strepsils can’t deal with. My head is hurting and my nose is preparing for what I am sure is tomorrow’s marathon. I know because it’s doing its warm up routine – tickling the hell out of that spot just below the bridge… you know how it is… when you feel you’re going to sneeze but don’t? Like brain freeze but this is face freeze. Gah. I hate colds.
So anyway, I am thankful for my bread pudding. I am going to eat lots of it tonight. Make some, just in case you get a cold. Which I hope you don’t. But you’ll still have the pudding, and you should eat it anyway, because what on earth would you do with leftover bread pudding?
