A visit with Mom....

Good Friday Morning ....
My, the weeks are flying by... I read some blogs who were speaking about Spring and I am thinking to myself.... (That will be awhile)
but with time slipping by so fast I guess it will be here sooner than we think.. I love Spring but I am not hurrying the time... There are so many cozy things about Winter...
Today, I am going to give you a recipe for the weekend... I know sometimes my recipes are sorta out there... I love anything different and am always trying the recipes out on my friends and family.... This one though is as old as can be....

Yesterday, we had to go to town to buy a new bed.... (waterbed) 
Yes, I am an old
Anyway, we stopped by to see Mom ( a dear Keeper of the Home)  and my Step-father as we had not seen them since way before Christmas as I had not been well...Anyway.....
It was lovely to see them... My Mom is a Cook with a capital C....
She cooked in the early lumbercamps of New Brunswick with my Gram (her mother-in-law) and then for the Canadian National Railway and in a Chinese restaurant for many years... So whenever you stop by you usually find her cooking up something.,.  Yesterday was no exception!!
She had made this wonderful pudding...
I had actually taken a couple of bites before I remembered that I had my camera in the car..
Sorry about the blur but I guess my camera was cold and I didn't notice until I put the pics in my computer... But you can still see the pudding... It was sooooo goood.... Yes, I am on a diet but just a taste as I told my
Here is the recipe for you...

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 T. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1 T. shortening (heaping)size of a small egg..
1 cup raisins
Use your pastry blender or 2 forks to bring this to a crumb ...
Then add 1/2 cup milk
Stir with your fork and pat into an eight inch cake pan..

Mix 1 3/4 cup of boiling water with 1 cup of brown sugar and pour over the batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes ..

You could serve this with whip cream or ice cream but there is no need.... Delicious!!!

I know a lot of folks are on diets but this would be a nice treat for your Sunday dinner after Church in the morning... Right?

Thank you for visiting today....
Welcome to all the new followers... Hope you all stop by often.
Have a God blessed weekend and take care...

  4. Hello Faye...Hippie or not...there is something about a good warm waterbed in the winter! Snuggle down and get some good rest.
