Halloween Goodies

Check out these cute little coffin's I'm going to give to friends for Halloween! I found the template on Martha Stewart's website. I still need to fill them with chocolates but I don't want to buy the chocolates till the end of next week. I would probably eat them before I filled the coffins. Happy Fall!!!! :)

This is a Cherry Bread Pudding receipe that my good friend "Terri" made for a get together several weekends ago. It is awesome!!!!
1/2 cup dried cherries
2 T Orange Juice
6 cups cinnamon raisin bread
1 1/2 c milk
1/2 c cream or half/half
5 Large Eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
Combine cherries and orange juice in a microwave safe cup. Heat in microwave till very hot, then set aside for the fruit to soften.
Butter a 1-2 qt. baking dish. Spread the bread cubes in the dish. Whisk together the milk, cream, eggs, sugar, flavorings, salt and a dash of cinnamon.
Sprinkle the cherries of the bread crumbs. Pour the mixture over the bread/cherries, pressing the bread down into the milk. Let sit for an hour or so at room temperature or overnite in the refrigerator, covered. Just before baking, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Uncover the pudding and bake for 45-55 minutes, uncovered, until the top is browned and the middle springs back when lightly pressed. Remove from oven, grate gresh nutmeg over the top if desired. Serve warm with ice cream.
Serves about 8.

FFMF.....Fun Flea Market Find

Here is an Alphabet Stitchin book I found at a flea market this weekend. The lady I bought it from said it came from an elderly ladies estate. The house was over 120 years old....the book is very brittle and needs work done to the binding. It has some great pattern ideas. I also found a couple of needle books to add to my collection. The indoor flea market was a great thing to do since there was snow on the ground...I was praying that soccer would be cancelled. Can't even imagine the winter we are going to have if it is already snowing by October 10th....YIKES. Have a great week!!!! Linda
