Tasty Tuesday: Biscuit Bread Pudding

Yes, I know it's not Tuesday any more, but I like the sound of Tasty Tuesday and I really wanted to share this recipe with you all.

With three of us, we rarely eat an entire plate of biscuits.  I almost always cut the recipe in half, but last night, even with cutting the recipe in half, I still had a ton of biscuits left over.  I began to wonder if bread pudding was an option.  I did some googling and came up with this biscuit bread pudding from Homesick Texan.  I wanted to pin it, but Pinterest doesn't always recognize all the things I recognize.  So here are my photos and what I did in adapting it

 Doesn't that just look tasty?  It was, very tasty.  I liked it.  


Here's a close up so you can see all the nummy fruit.

I greased the pan and then crumbled the biscuits in it.  Poured over two cups of milk and let it rest.  I then proceeded to beat two eggs and add a half cup each of brown and white sugar.  I also added cinnamon (which I would leave out if I were making chocolate again), vanilla, salt and cocoa powder.  Mixed all that up and then added it to the bread and milk in the pan, mixed it all up until it was pretty much the same color all over.  Added in some dried berry mix which is heavy on the cherries, but has bits of other things, too.  Cooked it in a 375 degree oven for just about 45 minutes.  We didn't let it cool long before digging in.  I had an extra bite with a bit of Sanders' caramel drizzled on top. I was able to teach Hannah the meaning of "Gilding the Lily" with that trick.  

It think it's great for breakfast, snack or dessert.  Bread pudding is a great way to use up bread that would other wise go to waste, it's like the culinary version of reduce reuse recycle.

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
