Good Snow Day Creations

First I just want to share an adorable picture my mom sent me today of Miss Harper, and one of her creative projects. She used some packing paper to make a little paper doll for herself. Isn't that a good idea? I thought her little doll turned out super cute. Of course she didn't fail to take the opportunity to design the dress as well. She aspires to be a fashion designer, and it's looking good so far.

Today little Harper had a snow day off from school. How lucky!! That's why she had time to craft up a storm. I did not have a snow day even though it was super cold, but if I had gotten the day off, I would have probably crafted like Harper. Afterwards, I would have cooked us up a big brunch of amazing chocolate bread pudding.

No joke, y'all, just look at the gooey center of this stuff. It is so good! Don't just take my word for it though, you definitely need to use up your next snow day to cook some up for yourself. If you can't possibly wait, the weekend is thankfully coming up. Stay warm!

choc bread pudding (9)

Chocolate Bread Pudding
10 slices of sandwich bread
5 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1 ½ cup cocoa powder
½ cup chocolate chips (optional, but recommended)
4 ripe bananas
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt

Spray a 9X13" baking dish with cooking spray. Blend together all the ingredients except for the bread and chocolate chips until well mixed. Stir in the chocolate chips. Cut the bread up into cubes and scatter it around the bottom of the pan. Evenly pour on the chocolate mixture, coating each bread cube in it. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, allow the pan to sit out for an hour on the counter to allow it to come to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Slice and serve.
