Bread & Butter Pudding.

Saturday 29th October 2011

With Mum & Dad here, every time I walk past a baker’s I pop in & get a couple of sticks of bread for us all to have lunch. Thinking the same as me, Mum & Dad have done the same. As a result we now have a glut of bread. So as I never like anything to go to waste, Mum & I came up with a few recipes

“Did you make it with soya butter?” I asked Mum.

“Oh spit!” She replied. “I forgot all about it. I remembered the soya milk but didn’t think about the butter. Oh I am sorry.”

“Don’t worry, I’ll make another one.” I said.

And so I set about making one for myself.

“You didn’t put any raisins in your?” I asked.

“No, I’m not keen on raisins. I put dates in instead.” Mum said.

“Ooh, that’s a good idea.” I said depiping some dates & chopping them up. “Might be nice with some walnuts too.” I continued crushing a handful & adding them to the raisins & dates. “Do you want some?”

“Oh no, not me dear. I’m very traditional.” She replied with a smile.

The first night both puddings were presented after dinner & Zephy was given the choice of which one he wanted. He chose my Mum’s.

Not one to be deterred easily, I served him up a little portion & gave it to him while we read books the night after.

He picked out all the shards of walnut & poked them in my mouth as I read.

I guess he’s traditional too.

About whatdidyouhavefordinnerlastnight

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.
