When you're living on a farm or eating what's in season, you learn quickly that everything has a season. The only time we eat pudding is summer. That's when the milk supply is plentiful, and there is enough left over from making cheese, buttermilk, and yogurt, to make things like pudding and ice cream. While most Americans would probably be upset about not having their favorite foods 12 months a year, there is a certain amount of wisdom in the reality. Pudding and ice cream season is also the time of year when we are busy enough to burn off the extra calories we consume in the pudding and ice cream! Yesterday, I made the first pudding of the season -- butterscotch with nutmeg. It was delicious!
Now it's time to head back outside and check on Annie Oakley. Looks like she'll be kidding today!
