The Hazards of Being Sick and a Grown-Up…

…is that sometimes you have to make your own comfort food.

Usually, T. makes me things like broth or risotto, and that’s wonderful, but this time, I had (have) a sore throat/swollen glands, and I was seriously missing my mom’s vanilla pudding, that she used to make me when I was sick sometimes.

I haven’t lived at home in 20 years or so, and, besides, my mom’s at a yoga seminar on the other side of the country (details are fuzzy) right now.

So I had to make my own.

I used a pretty basic Betty Crocker recipe, and it turned out – not quite like my childhood (not as grainy, and a little too sweet, which could be refined tastes) – but very yummy.

And, ya know? It made me feel better for a bit, too.

(I am still taking commissions at 150 words/$1 for someone to re-up my paid DW account… I miss my icons.)

  1. Mmmm, pudding! For a cornstarch pudding, that’s surprisingly different from the caramel one out of Joy of Cooking that I’ve been playing with (wherein I keep botching getting the cornstarch cooked properly). Trying this method instead may be in order.

  2. Sorry to hear you are not feeling well! Glad you could make something that helped you feel better. Sore throats are awful.
