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.

Four Cups by Chris Hodges

Four Cups by Chris Hodges is a brief book based on the four cups associated with the Seder Meal. Within the Seder meal, four promises of God are celebrated. Hodges goes through the four promises and challenges the reader to live them out.

Those four promises are:
1. God will free you from oppression.
2.God will free you from slavery.
3. God will redeem you.
4. God claims you and wants to celebrate that.

My favorite was the last promise. I think that it's very rare that we get together with other Christians to celebrate the fact that we belong to God. We have plenty of parties, but often those are to mark events or the passing of time, but not often do we celebrate the fact that we get to hang out with the Holy Spirit.

Each chapter is short enough that it could be read aloud by a group and then followed with a simple prayer. It would make a nice book study for a group. Hodges also recommends using the four cups to help grow your faith community. And by growth, he means people movin…

Lent aka Spring Training

If you've been paying attention, you'll have noticed that there's less and less of me on social media. I started small with changing my password on my Facebook account so that I couldn't check it. And that quickly escalated to a downloading of my account and deletion. Like, never getting it back, it's gone, if you want one, you'll have to start over deletion. And then I just switched my time to checking my Instagram, which used to be in check until Facebook went away. And then lent started and I put all of my Instagram accounts on temporary disable. And they're probably going to stay that way until I get beyond the point of turning to my phone to see if it has anything for me in terms of entertainment and validation. Hopefully, that will be take about 40 days, give or take a few Sundays.

So, I'm hoping to use this lent period to get myself all prepped for what can be in my life. I really want to serve God with all my heart, my soul, my mind, and my body…

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
