Let me just say that I was not one of those children that grew up on pudding. We didn’t have pudding for dessert every night. I didn’t have a pudding cup packed in my lunch. Heck, I didn’t even pack a lunch. I went to a school that was grades K4-8 all in one building and about 90% of us walked home for lunch. In the snow and rain, not uphill.
I digress. The boys eat lunch at school and see lots of foods I won’t let them have. Pudding cups are one of them. I’ve made several different puddings for them and it’s been popular. They don’t get it often at all, so when they do it is a real treat.
Halloween may be over but it is definitely still pumpkin season! I need to get more pumpkins to roast, purée and freeze for my stash before the season is over.
This little treat is the perfect autumn sweet. It is quick and easy to make so in my book that is just awesome! Then of course it can be packed in glass or stainless steel containers for a school treat. The boys beg for pudding cups which I refuse to buy, this homemade version though is perfect.
I was recently at the grocery store and was appalled at how much processed junk food I saw in somebody’s cart as they walked by. One a positive note though, I did get a good idea. They had several boxes of pudding cups. In the past I have made pudding for the boys for their lunches or for when we go on picnics. It was time to make some again!
