She's up at the crack of dawn, has got the kiddos off to school, your dinner ready, and dry-cleaning ready to pick up..she's none other than your wonderful wife. And what she deserves more than anything is a sweet ending after a very long day. Thank her this Mother's Day with this special treat made by none other....YOU! (Now I know that this website is read by mostly "mom-readers" but simply erase this line in the message and "accidentally" leave it up on the printer..wink).
French Vanilla Orange-Scented Custard
(or French Vanilla Custard a L'Orange)
One small box of instant french vanilla pudding
1 3/4 cup lowfat milk
1 teaspoon orange extract
cinnamon or nutmeg
fresh fruit to garnish
This one's really EASY! Combine your pudding packet with 1 3/4 cups whole or low-fat milk (depending on the gal..you'll know if she's watching her weight. And in that case, use the low-fat milk), add a full teaspoon of orange extract, and a dash of ground nutmeg or cinnamon, which ever one you have handy. Garnish with a couple of pieces of fresh fruit (I say go with either a blackberry or raspberry so that you're not there slicing) put it in a fancy glass and there you have it!
By the time the kiddos are finishing putting their special stamp on mom's card, you're done. She's happy. You're happy. A sweet ending for all.
Have a Happy Mother's Day & Celebrate the wonderful woman in your life with the "fruits" of her labor:)
