Rainy Sunday & Comfort Food

Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Here In Williams Township it has been raining since about noon. On days like this I think "comfort food". So, in the crockpot is a beef stew for later in the week, we think stew always tastes better if you let it sit for a day or so. On the stove is Macaroni & Beans, for dinner tonight and just out of the oven is Bread Pudding for dessert. My receipe for bread pudding could not be easier. Here is the receipe.

7 or 8 slices of white bread, 3/4" size pieces (I use a mixture of Italian and White bread, and I make sure it is stale)

3 cups of hot milk
2 beaten eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbs butter
1 1/2 tbs vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp baking powder

Coat a 9" x 12" casserole dish with butter. Pull bread into 3/4" pieces & put aside. Combine remaining ingredients and mix well. Add the bread and mix well.

Add to casserole dish and sprinkle with nutmeg/cinnamon (I use both)

Bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.

We like it when it is warm, but it is good anytime, Enjoy!!
