A different dessert

My brain is just not cooperating today. It was one of those days at work where I had a hard time getting anything accomplished. It doesn't help that interruptions are pretty much part of the job description for a school secretary - being constantly interrupted certainly doesn't help when you're feeling brain-dead.

I think it will be order-out pizza tonight. DH is out with the guys and tonight is American Idol night, so I'm thinking pizza sounds pretty good. I'll make it up tomorrow with a nice, nutritious dinner. I did eat well for breakfast and lunch, so it's not a total loss of a day.

I may not have a recipe on the stove tonight, but I will share a dessert recipe that my SIL made for us once. Never in a million years would I have tried this one myself - I thought it sounded very strange. However, since she was cooking, I was more than willing to sample! I'm much more willing to try something unusual if it's cooked for me - it's hard for me to commit to spending time in the kitchen if I'm not pretty sure I'll like it. Anyway, it turned out to be very, very good and both of my boys loved it too. Since then, I've tried to be more open about the things I'll try - you just never know.

Indian Bread Pudding with Cardamom Sauce


  1. Nice new look for your blog. I really like it.

  2. That looks and sounds delicious! A nice slightly spicy flavour to warm up a cold winter's night. At least it's cold here in Toronto.

    I just found your blog today and am glad that I did!

    I'll be visiting again soon ...

  3. Wow. I love the new header and picture! Looks awesome! And that bread pudding sounds amazing!! I've never made it, now I think I have a good reason to.

  4. Thanks Kalyn and Mona. :)

    Welcome Ivonne. I hope you'll be back. :) I just took a very quick look at your blog and I'm sure I'll be back - yummy looking cupcakes!

  5. It looks like you and I changed the looks of our blogs at the same time! Yours looks wonderful. Did you know that both Kalyn and I are teachers? What kind of school do you work in? Yes, your job is hectic--you're always having to deal with people, which, depending on where you work, could be fun or not. See ya later.

  6. Hi Cyndi. :)

    I work at an elementary (K-5) school. I'm fortunate to work with a wonderful group of people.

    I did see that you are a teacher, but didn't know that Kalyn is one too. Bless the teachers! :)
