Cheap and Easy Bread Pudding

"This is a great way to use up leftover Recipe #379727 - I had three of them left over from the week and trimmed them up, cubed them and made a basic bread pudding recipe. I took it out of the oven as DH was leaving for work and he hung around while I packed it up for him. The whole house smells great! Switch up the ingredients to what your family likes!"

Hello Zaars and Zaarinas! Thank all of you who tried my 'memory' recipes and left such nice reviews and for taking such lovely pictures. I do appreciate your comments. My pet peeves about cooking are recipe reviews where the reviewer says, "I made the recipe exactly as written EXCEPT yada yada yada" and I don't like suggestive names or titles such as, "Better Than Sex". I don't know why anyone would eat anything that is 'sinful' or 'decadent' since decadent is described as being decaying. Also, PAP-RI-KA only has 3 syllables. VINAIGRETTE is pronounced vin-a-grette, not vinager-ette. It's mas-car-pone not mars-ca-pone. And I don't like cutesy adult baby talk,,, or metro chic names like delish, nutrish, yummo, sammy, BAM! Oh well, I make as many, or more, faux pas as the next guy especially in ASL! Things that crack me up are: DH Fred from Nick, my nephew Fish and Poi song as performed by PoiBoi My possum recipe per the song on wow this is good! my Doggie Little Yellow Petey Bird on youtube My BFF's. all of them and there are so many! and my little Sister Mary Beth. She has MS and Lupus and a great attitude. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="">
