Puddings, puddings, puddings

A skit, songs, laughter, the cozy feeling of a town that holds together and finally, the awarding of the prizes and the crowning of the Pudding Head — it all flowed as the three of us sat in the back holding our heads and our stomachs, starting into recovery from Pudding Overdose.

After the awards had been announced and the prizes bestowed(a food processor from Cuisinart, a baking set from Calphalon), the townspeople came forward for the ritual sampling of the puddings. Everyone eagerly lined up in the aisle to go forward to the altar and partake of the Exalted Puddings. They helped themselves, so many to choose from, and returned to their pews with their plates. A very special kind of communion on a rainy fall day in the Berkshires.

    Although I’m no light-weight when it comes to eating I pity your poor stomach that afternoon! Just reading the names of the puddings made me full!

    LOL – this made me want to create a pudding contest here and name myself the head judge! Puddings are such a comfort food for me. My secretary always made me bananna puddings instead of birthday cakes for office celebrations because I am so partial to them. My grandmother’s bread pudding was also a very special dessert that no one can duplicate. I envy you this heavenly pudding day, Edie!
