English Summer Pudding

Monday, September 20th, 2010

This yummy desert is SUPER EASY to make!!

1 loaf of bread (I used wheat)

8 cups mixed summer berries (I used strawberries (quartered), blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries)

3/4 cups sugar

Instructions:

Remove crust from bread and discard (or feed to the birds).  Cut bread into 1/2″ slices.  Arrange bread slices around the sides and bottom of a glass bowl.  in large sauce pan over medium heat, combine berries and sugar and cook for 10 mins or until berries soften.  Spoon berry mixture over bread slices.  Cover berries with more bread slices.  Poor remaining berry liquid over bread to soak.  Cover pudding with wax paper.  Refrigerate for at least 8 hours.  Serve with cool whip or your own home made whipped cream.

Whipped cream:

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whisk ingredients together until soft peaks form. Serve.

ENGLAND

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

In August we traveled to England for our 2nd wedding anniversary.  We had a WONDERFUL time!  Some of the highlights of our trip were: seeing Big Ben glowing at night, going for a ride in the London Eye, walking all around London, shopping in Harrods, visiting Stonehenge, taking a tour of the ancient Roman Bath house in Bath, eating lunch at Sally Lunn’s in Bath, and walking along the white cliffs in Dover.  We were blessed to have beautiful weather the whole time and enjoyed a break from the HOT temperatures at home!

We took LOADS of pictures so to make it easier, we have divided them into albums. Please enjoy looking though our pictures!
