Butterscotch Pudding

A Thanksgiving recipe called for heavy cream, but what to do with the rest of the quart?  Make some awesome pudding, that's what!  Another favorite from my childhood is JELL-O butterscotch pudding.  Instead of using two cups of regular milk, I combined a cup of heavy cream with a cup of skim milk, resulting in about a 20 percent fat content.  Instead of splitting the two cups of pudding the suggested four ways, I opted to pour the more satisfying super-sized three bowls you see below.

Total yumminess!

Pixel 2 Stable Video

Had to check out the "super stable" video recording on my new Pixel 2 to really see how it performed, so I shot this video of walking while walking around my house. Pretty impressive and I'll have to try it out standing still and recording a sporting event.

No-Heat Handle

Besides being a cute mug, I was surprised that when I reheated my coffee, this handle did not get hot, unlike the mug I normally use.  I guess I need to pay more attention to the "microwave-safe" jargon.

Blanton Stopper Key Hooks

Blanton Bourbon bottles are known for their eight different stopper designs depicting different scenes from a horse race.  These two, with their corks cut down and a steel washer glued on, will become our new set of hooks that we hang our car keys on, a fancy replacement for the current dull plastic ones.

Pumpkin Eggnog French Toast

The first cooked breakfast I learned to make as a young kid was French Toast, which I rarely have these days, but when someone suggested adding pumpkin eggnog, I just had to give it a try.  The results, including my traditional of sprinkling a little cinnamon and sugar on top, were outstanding.

Whip two eggs with a 1/2 cup of pumpkin eggnog, dunk three slices of bread and fry until golden brown.  And make a little scrambled eggs with the remainder.  Easy peasy.
