Celebrate the Fruits of her labor

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'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:)
