Dinner was delish tonight and really easy! Spinach, Chicken and Bacon Calzones, Steamed Broccoli, Greek Salads and Lemon Pudding with Whipped Cream - 2 thumbs up by all family members! The dessert was the perfect ending and it was the beginning of it all! One of my grandmothers (I still have all 4 of my grandparents living) has a saying that she has lived by.
Use it Up, Wear it Out!
Make it do, or do without!
A life lesson in such a short phrase so many of us should live. But I digress, dessert! That's where I started. I had leftover whipped cream (the homemade kind remember?) in the fridge and could not in good faith let it go to waste. So I ventured downstairs to my pantry to see what flavor of good 'ole Jello instant pudding sat on the shelf. Lemon - yum! And yes, instant is fine for my family. I enjoy convenience. Add the milk, whisk whisk whisk - and in a matter of minutes, pudding!
Now doesn't lemon pudding with a dollop of whipped cream sound lip smacking good! Just ask the three year old - he did all but licked his bowl! Literally! And what better to go with a yummy dessert but calzones!
