Friday five: Hasty Pudding Edition

Our regular poster, Sally, having been oppressed by Blogger today, I bring you a hasty Friday Five on the subject of pudding. If you are not a fan of pudding, then you will feel solidarity with Sally, except that you will be oppressed by pudding instead. ;-)

1) First of all, thumbs up? or thumbs down? Do you like pudding?
Yes, I love pudding.

2) Instant or cooked? (Does anyone make pudding from scratch?)
There are two from-scratch recipes in the old More with Less Cookbook, one for vanilla and one for chocolate, that are very easy. When we have pudding at home (very rare), that's what we have.

3) If you had to choose, would you prefer corn pudding or figgy pudding?
Corn pudding--yum. Great side dish. I think the figgy pudding of the song is actually something like a fruit cake. That's OK too.

4) Have you ever finger painted with pudding?
Probably, many decades ago.

5) Finally, what is the matter with Mary Jane?
Her parents don't yet know that she's allergic to rice--the pudding makes her tummy hurt!

Bonus: Share a favorite recipe that includes pudding!
Instead of vanilla wafers, layer vanilla pudding with sliced bananas and your favorite granola. Easy.
Now we're heading out of town!

Good reason for Mary Jane. Smart kid!

Sue said...

Ah, I hadn't thought of allergies either.

I want to find that cookbook, as we're trying to do more scratch cooking here. Thanks for the tip!

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

Who eats the boxed stuff? ick! I make my own pudding just like you. If people ever ate real pudding they would never eat anything else.

hope your trip went well. when I think of pudding it's my grand ma's tapioca and rice at a favored Indian restaurant.

Great recipe.

RevAnne said...

Hmmm...granola might make pudding work; I use it in yogurt, too. Great play.

I like the idea of bananas and granola! Enjoy your trip.

The Cooking More With Less chocolate pudding is one of my favorites too. I hope you have a good time out of town!
