Tuesday on Thursday!


Well, this is my Tuesdays with Dorie post coming to you on none other than Thursday. I have a good reason. This morning I had my wisdom teeth taken out so I made the chocolate pudding last night (see post below for details and link to recipe). It turned out beautifully. I never would've thought about making homemade pudding but it sure is perfect timing considering today's events. I've only had a bite so far as I'm planning to have some after my dinner of mashed potatoes. :-) It seemed a little on the bitter side as opposed to sweet. I did halve the recipe as to not make as much. I've gone back over the recipe and I know I did everything just right. Like I said, I've only had a taste so I'll give it a shot tonight. The texture was perfect though. It was a very easy recipe so if you like pudding, give it a go.

**update: When I took this out of the fridge the evening after my surgery, it was really thick. I added a little fat free milk and stirred it up. Now, I can't get enough. It is so delicious and rich. I guess some of the bitterness subsided during the refrigeration stage. Yummy!

I hope that you are recovering nicely from the widom teeth, I know that is no fun at all. Don't forget..'do not use straw ok?' Your pudding looks really great and super chocolatey. I look forward to your post next week. Get well soon!

Wishing you a speedy recovery from the wisdom teeth extraction (ugh). Chocolate pudding = perfect for this situation!

I hope you're feeling better already. Wisdom tooth extraction, ouch.. that's gotta hurt. Bet the chocolate pudding helped to rid you of some of the pain. *grins*
