I went on!
Mr. Sweetladyelaine has a terrible cold and so I decided to make him some homemade chicken soup. For some reason I love cutting up the onions, carrots, celery and green beans. I cut the chicken too. And put that all on the stove to simmer...at the last few minutes I thre in some egg noodles!
Did I stop there? NO!!!
I started to think Hmm... homemade bread would be wonderful. So I dragged out the bread flour, yeast, water and salt and made the dough. It is rising right now! Did I stop there????? NO!!!!
I got out the extra bread and started to shred it in the pan and soon I was beating milk, eggs, cinnamon and sugar. Let it be known I did not forget the raisins!
I made bread pudding and stuck that in the oven for an hour.
I don't have a specific recipe for bread pudding. I use a 9x13x 3 pan. butter it and fill it with broken pieces of bread ( any kind, new, old, buns, bagels, English muffins etc.) to the top. I then beat 1 egg for every 1 cup of milk.....a 9x13 inch pan takes 6 cups of milk and 6 eggs. I put in about 1/2 cup of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Pour it all over the bread. Push the bread down so it all gets wet with the mixture. Add 1 cup of raisins sprinkling them all over the top .....mix them in a little. Sprinkle more cinnamon & sugar on the top. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and cook for 1 hour. It should be firm and brown when it is ready. Sometimes I have to leave it in a little longer depending on how much I fill up the pan.
If you remember the 1 egg to every cup of milk, you can adjust the rest to your liking! That's what I do. I serve it warm with whipped creme on top.
It is great for large crowds and winter mornings! I warm it up for breakfast! It is just the comfort food I need to get me going.
Here is the soup in our bowls and ready to eat......
I LOVE crusty bread!
Mr. Sweetladyelaine appreciated the soup & bread....it was good for his cold. I am glad I took the time and made my husband feel loved. Have you done something special for your Hubby this week? If you haven't, take the time one day this week and do something special for him no matter how small. He will smile! It tells them know we are thinking about them. They like that!
Have a great week and I will see you soon!
