It was a kitchen day. I ended up baking some goodies...surprise, I'm NEVER in the kitchen. Brinley likes to bake with me, so we decided on Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Matt has been bugging me about making some of these. I found a GREAT recipe and they turned out awesome ( I love experimenting with new recipes and tweaking them to my taste). The recipe came out of an old book from the 70's, i'm sure. I love old recipe book, especially ones that you find at a yard sale or thrift shop, they always have notes written in them. Then I got the hankerin' for some good ol' fashion Bread Pudding. If we go out to eat and it's on the dessert menu, I order it. I love Bread pudding. It has to be one of my favorite desserts, especially with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a little chocolate drizzled on top. YUM! My Grandma Esther used to make it for us growing up, so it has sentimental qualities to it. I am reminded of her every time I have it. I am so happy she left all of her hand written recipes to me, they are priceless.
So, Brinley and Matt had cookies, I had my puddin'.
