cold and simple pleasures !

We are having record cold tonight, maybe the teens! Grandson is playing soccer in it! We had a great weekend, went to a farm in a very rural town nearby and came homewith cane syrup, sweet potatoes,greens and peas. The first thing I did was make bbuttered biscuits and sausage to go with that syrup, it was sooo good! Last night I made a bread pudding with a rum sauce and used the syrup instead of sugar, it was so good hubby wants another one tonight! The greens, peas and sweet potatoes will be for Thanksgiving! I loved that ride in the country and visiting the farm with all the vegetables and things, more of my simple pleasures !

  1. Sounds lovely. It's cold here too, with lots of snow. Hubby is out plowing the driveway even as I write. Have a cozy evening.

  10. Simple pleasures are the best. I haven't had bread pudding in years but you have inspired me. A real comfort food.
