Bread Pudding requires bread

I pulled out the bread machine a couple of weeks ago, because hey, we own the stupid thing, we might as well use it. And I have been.

Yesterday evening I made a loaf of white bread, thinking that I'd make some bread pudding. Problem was, when I got home this afternoon, the house apes had gotten into it and half the loaf was gone.

Now how can I get mad at that? So I whomped up another - bigger - loaf this evening, this time honey wheat. Before it had cooled I'd sliced it up and tore a heap of it into chunks for tomorrows bread pudding. A good half dozen slices are left over, and I'm thinking peanut butter and orange marmalade for lunch tomorrow.

Good thing I get up earlier than the kids, or there probably wouldn't be any left.

Bread machine? CHEATER! :P

Y'know what I like to use in my bread pudding? French bread along with assorted pastries and small globs of jam and/or preserves. That way you get tasty fruitiness in every other bite. Yum!

Hmm. I still haven't gotten around to posting a recipe for the whole wheat raison bread with a plum sauce swirl that I came up with last fall. Oh, that was a good one. Now if Lawruh would only get around to sending me the videotape we made 'cause I lost my notes...

Homemade bread? Yum. You'd make somebody a good wife (joking! joking! wink! wink!) But hey, that gave me a great idea. You can whip up that bread, slap a label on it called "Rocket Jones' Rockety Good Eatin's" and have a contest on your blog. The winner(s) get a loaf of your homemade bread.

Yeah, I think that's a GREAT idea.

A bread machine is cheating? Then so is buying flour bucko! Go grind your own grain or pipe down. :D

Cindy, I'd make a terrible wife. I like sex. ;)

I like the idea about the contest, now I need suggestions about what...

Ted, that's such a stereotypical 'wife' comment. :-)

When I did a contest on my blog, folks had to guess the name of my dog. I'm sure you (or your readers) can come up with something! I'll think about it and get back to you should some sudden burst of brilliance land on me today.

Mmmm, whiskey sauce.

Cindy, of course it was. That's why I said it! LOL

I know exactly what kind of contest to have. Look for the announcement in the next day or two.
