TWD: Still need to take a picture

*** UPDATED WITH PICTURE***

Yes, I'm late. No, I didn't forget or not make the recipe. It is actually sitting in my fridge right now, just waiting for me to find the time to take a picture.

Last couple of days have been very busy. Soccer tournament, Taekwon-do picnic, driving to my mothers to drop off my children then coming back, cleaning, cleaning and more cleaning. And more cleaning to come. With some furniture moving in between.

When it was announced that Melissa of Its Melissa's Kitchen had chosen chocolate pudding, I thought my kids were going to be in heaven. They love pudding, with chocolate being their favorite. And it is something I don't make often, or buy for their lunch boxes often. But with this recipe, I may have to make it for the for school lunches as it is simple and comes together quickly. If you are organized, which I was not, but it still came together nicely.

Because of the schedule last week, I actually did not get a chance to make this before the kids went away. So no chocolate pudding for them. I considered not doing it but that just wasn't right. Next I thought I would just make half a recipe, but how do you cut an egg in half? (I know, beat it then measure out half.) In the end I made the entire recipe, but changed it.

I made white chocolate pudding instead.

Yes, I know white chocolate isn't "real" chocolate. I like it in pudding, though, and that's what I wanted to use.

Obviously I omitted the cocoa powder. I increased the melted chocolate from 5oz to 7 oz, to make up the difference in the lack of cocoa, but otherwise left the rest of the recipe alone. It worked, the pudding is smooth and creamy and not overly sweet, despite leaving in the same amount of sugar.

And maybe sometime today I will get a picture taken of it and put it up here.

For now, though, I am going out to lunch with a friend and need to get my butt in gear or I will be late, late, late!

This week is Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler, which I'm pretty sure I made before (and no one liked.) Going to have to see what I can do about that one. Especially as the cherries I saw yesterday were $8.99 a pound!

Well here you go, one picture. It's pudding. White pudding. With the skin. Cause I wanted it that way and I am the only person who is going to eat it.

And for everyone who is curious, I went here with my friend for lunch. It was yummy (I had the Japchae lunch box, Korean Fried Noodles) and very pretty as well, though I didn't bring a camera to take pictures. Oh well!

I'm late too; making as well as photographing and tasting. Can't wait to see how your white chocolate version turns out.

Interesting idea, white chocolate. I'm not that big a fan of it, but my husband is. Maybe layered with the regular chocolate kind...
