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
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
