Lumang Tinapay Atbp

We had plenty of old bread.  So the most logical thing to do was to make bread pudding.  And that’s exactly what I made last Wednesday….

The end product wasn’t sweet at all, as in no trace of sugar whatsoever.  That didn’t come as a surprise because the recipe only called for 6 tablespoons of sugar.  But it’s nothing a little maple or chocolate syrup (or even custard sauce) couldn’t fix. :)

In fairness, the recipe did call for a meringue topping.  But I got lazy. :D

oOo

I also made arroz caldo last Wednesday, for the first time ever.  I prepared it just before hubby, Abby and I headed out of the house.  Before we left, it looked perfect and it did taste perfect, if I may say so myself.  But when we got back after about an hour, I was a little shocked to see  the rice has soaked up almost all of the sabaw.  I had to remedy it a little by adding some more water.  The thing is, I didn’t want to add too much because like I said, it already tasted perfect, exactly how I want and remember arroz caldo to be.  I just made a mental note to use a little less rice next time. ;)

Ayan o, sobrang lapot!  This time, wala akong “arroz caldo b”.  Hee hee!

I’ve always loved arroz caldo.  It’s a classic comfort food for me…and comfort me it did! ;)

That’s it as far as my kitchen “clinical trials” are concerned.  Hee hee! :)

Enjoy the weekend, y’all! :D

    uy comfort food din namin ang arroz caldo :D its also one of the few things ninna eats a lot of.

    nung first time ko naman nagluto niyan, dalawa pa lang kami ni hubby. tapos ang ginamit ko tatlong gatang na kanin, kasi parang konti. e dumadami pala, ahahaha! kaya hayun pati yung leasing office, guards at janitors sa buong building namin nun (sa makati pa) nakapag-piyesta ng arroz caldo. :D

    as for the bread pudding, may tinuro si sheng sa akin. banana pudding naman. pag daw di nauubos yung saging nila at bread sa bahay, ginagawa niyang pudding. awa ni lord di ko pa rin nagagawa hehe.

    Meeya dear, pareho si Abby at Ninna! Nung naguumpisa pa lang kasi magsolid food si Abby, naku, panay ang kain nun ng Chowking congee. Yun ang food na for sure e kakainin niya…o kaya yung sotanghon ng Jollibee! (Bigla akong nahomesick. :( )

    I could just imagine, 3 cups ng bigas ang ginamit mo! E yung ginawa ko, 1 and a half cups lang kita mo ang nangyari, parang kanin na ang kinalabasan. Nyahaha! Edi bigla ka palang nagka instant carinderia sa building niyo! Hehehe!

    Naku, kailangan ko rin matutunan yang banana pudding dahil lagi rin kami nabubulukan ng saging! Promise! :D Pengeng recipe! Gusto mo subukan ko na? Hahaha!

    Aba, at kinareer mo na naman ang pagka-“Super SAHMMY” at “Wonder Wife” ha! Impressed na ako sa iyong culinary adventures ;) At East meets West pa ang dating – imagine, good ol’ Pinoy arroz caldo meets the oh-so-Brit bread pudding! :D Nagutom tuloy ako… :)

    Kaasar lang talaga pag the rice seems to soak up all the liquid… it also happens to me kasi not only with arroz caldo but also when I cook anything with vermicelli noodles. Dati, proud na proud ako na naluto ko yung sukiyaki, pagdating ng gabi, nung iinitin ko na, aba at naging pansit na! Grrr…

    Well, as they say, there’s always a next time… ;)

    Pinks, nerd kasi ako! Kaya kung anong ibatong role sa akin, ikakareer ko talaga! Nyahaha! :D Dalawang pans ng bread pudding ang nagawa ko pero meron pa rin kaming natirang tinapay. O diba? Ang dami talaga naming tinapay! Meron na naman ngang mageexpire ulit! ;) So next time, ibang bread pudding naman. :P

    Yun yata talaga ang problema sa mga rice at noodle based dishes na me sabaw…natutuyo dahil nasisipsip ang liquid. Diba? Sa sopas, sa spaghetti (pag hinalo agad ang sauce)! Babalikan ko talaga ulit yang arroz caldo na yan! Promise! ;)

    hahaa, tuwing nagluluto ako ng arroz caldo nagmimistulang Biko! di ko talaga matantya kung gaano karami yung sticky rice, di ako masanay magluto ng pangdalawang tao, like meeya, feeling ko laging konti kaya nag-end up pambaranggay ang dami. end product tulad din sayo, may sabaw sa simula, maya-maya, kakanin na. :D

    weng! peram naman ako ng pudding recipe! my mudra used to make these when we were kids, and until now di ko pa sinusubok. she said cream and milk lang with the bread, pero pano? im probably adding raisins to it! :)

    Abby, yung arroz caldo ko, nagmistulang guinatan! Sanay din ako magluto for 10 kaya hirap na hirap ako magluto for 3…well, 2 and a half! :D

    Alam mo, ang gustung-gusto ko rin na bread pudding, yung ginagawa ng lola at tita ko. Egg, milk at sugar lang yun. E siyempre, recipe dependent ako ano. Di ko tuloy maulit kahit nagawa ko na dati sa Pinas. ;) Pageeksperimentuhan ko ulit. Pero ito ang ginamit kong recipe: bread pudding. Siyempre hindi ko sinunod yan dahil hindi french bread ang ginamit ko at di lang 6 slices. Baka kaya hindi matamis ang pudding ko. :D Tapos me nakita pa akong isa. Baka mas malapit ito dun sa gusto natin from our “elders”: homestyle bread pudding. O gawin mo na ha! Gusto ko rin ng me raisins…kaso ayaw ng asawa ko ng me raisins sa pagkain…ok lang kung papapakin pero ayaw na ihalo sa iba. Weird ano?! Hee hee! :D

    Weng, how do you manage to do all those things?!!! The bread pudding looks so delicious… please send Pinky the recipe (oops! pina-hamak pa ang asawa).

    Arroz Caldo… burp! Please send me some here in the Mid-East. Tuyo o hindi, it still looks so yummy.

    Keith, the answer is I don’t know. Hahah. Maybe I’m just simply brilliant. Nyahahaha! O joke lang yun ha! ;) Abby loves the bread putting and I’m afraid she’ll be the one to finish all of it because Dondi’s out of town and I’m kinda watching what I eat. I’ll send Pinky the recipe when she asks for it. :P

    Punta ka dito, ipagluluto kita ng fresh batch na hopefully, hindi na mukhang guinatan! ;) Bilis!

    Cheh! Naiintindihan ko ang problema mo about the German breads…yung matitigas na pagibinato sayo magkakabukol ka. Hahaha! :D Edi minsan, bumili ka ng white bread para lang ipangpudding. ;) Uy, nagbabalak ka gumawa ng pandesal? Sige nga! Kaya lang iniiwasan ko kasi yung mga kailangan pang i-masa.

    Drools! Can someone adopt me here? I can’t cook but I love to eat – don’t worry, I’ll be fine in washing the dishes.

    Via Che.

    Hi K! Welcome to my cyber home. :D Oooh, that’s a very tempting offer…adopt you in exchange for washing dishes. Haha! What else can you do? Are you good with kids? Joke! Hee hee! :D I love to eat, too and I’ve always loved cooking, but was just too lazy. I have no choice now but to embrace my love for cooking as if I don’t, we won’t eat and I’m too much of a miser to buy take out all the time. Hahaha! I don’t claim to be good at it though. As you can see, the food doesn’t always come out the way they’re supposed to. :D

    Thanks for the visit! Come back any time! ;)

    what a coincidence, i’m having arroz caldo right now….and i have old bread – but it’s very very old and expired na…so no dice to make it to a pudding…ill just look at the pics to savor them :P

    Psst, Junnie…I heard you can use old bread, even the expired ones as long as it’s not all moldy yet. Or did I hear wrong? Hahaha! What a very comforting meal you’re having! Yumm! ;)

    Hi Nell! I love crepes…banana caramel with vanilla ice cream. Haaay. Dati ko pa nga pinagninilay-nilayan ang pagbili ng crepe pan eh. Pero uunahin ko na muna siguro ang crock pot. Hahaha! Buti ka pa, malamig na jan. Ako feeling nasa Manila pa rin. :D Not that I’m complaining! Hubby’s on a business trip (since Saturday) so stay-at-home kaming mag-ina except for church. Hehe! ;)

    Hi Kris! Normal na sa amin ang maraming left overs. 2 days din ang arroz caldo…mas matagal pa nga yata! Sanay kasi ako na maramihan ang luto. At least, sure na me isang araw na hindi ko kailangang magluto. Hahaha! Sige, please send me the recipe for the banana muffins…meron kasi kaming saging ngayon…hindi ko bubulukin. Promise! :D

    High-five tayo sa vanilla ice cream at chocolate syrup! Naging favorite namin ni hubby ang banana caramel crepe. Pag nagpipig-out kami sa buffets sa Manila at me crepe station, sigurado yun ang una sa listahan namin ng dessert! Haaay. Sarap. :D
