Summer Memories

pudding.gifWell, our AC has been out for a week. Having no AC reminded me of spending time at my grandparents’ house as a child. Any trip to their house also included spending time with my Granny and Aunt Ruby. Granny was actually my great-grandmother and Aunt Ruby was my Granddaddy’s sister. They lived in a big farm house with high ceilings and a porch that seemed huge to a preschooler. Aunt Ruby would make her special chocolate pudding for me. It was always one of the highlights of my visit to Granny’s house.

1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 T Butter
1 ½ C. Milk
