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.

Our Daily Question from Ink & Willow

Did you ever have a book that you love so much because it's just right? That's Our Daily Question for me. It's a three-year journal to share with your significant other. How does that work? Well, each calendar date has a question and divided space to record your answer three times.  There is a great mix of fun, serious, thought-provoking, and heartfelt questions. Generally, the only ones that we've skipped over have been the ones that talk about all the time. It's been nice to be able to pick it up with morning coffee and have a conversation ready to go. Some we've even used at the dinner table to have family discussions.  It's a wonderful little keepsake, one that will have much more value when you finish with it than when you start. If you're looking for a special gift to give a newly married couple, yourself, or even a pair of love birds that have been married for over 20 years, this is a great choice.  I received a copy of this book from Ink & W

Hospitality for the Rest of Us: Long Distance

People are moving more and more. When I was a youngster, it was a rare instance for a friend to move away. Now it's me that moves away. We've moved a lot, especially when we first got married. It was something like five addresses and three states in the first four years of our marriage. We've slowed down a bit. In the midst of all that moving, we've made some friends along the way. I try to keep an open line in case of times of grief and celebration. One of the best tools I've found for keeping in touch with loved ones far away is Facebook. As much time as I could spend doing other things instead of checking it, it's the best thing I've found. It allows me to communicate with others, without having to call. I know calling is amazing, hearing people's voices, but for introverts, there are no body language clues for us to pick up on that help make our conversations easier. It's also why we prefer to video chat :-) Back to Facebook, some etiquette.
