Footprints in the snow and a warm winter treat

On the weekend  it was a beautiful February  day bright sunshine,  clear blue sky.

 Not too cold.. A great day for a walk....... 
love the shadows

Bunny tracks,

deer tracks,

deer  going down to water pond for a dink

human  tracks.

After my   walk I made a new  recipe Peaches and Cream Bread Pudding from Canadian Living magazine.......

Tender, sweet peaches,used frozen;  a delicious twist to this  comfort dessert. Lightened the dish using peaches , not so heavy.   Served warm with  vanilla bean  ice cream .


  • 8 thick  slices day-old bread,cubed
  • 3 tbsp butter , softened
  • 3 cups thawed frozen sliced peaches
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup 10% cream ;used extra milk instead of cream
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar to sprinkle on top
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon 


Spread both sides of bread slices with butter; tear into bite-size pieces. Toss with peaches; place in greased 8-inch (2 L) square baking dish.
Whisk together milk, sugar, cream, eggs and vanilla until smooth; pour over bread mixture, gently pressing to soak. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Bake in 350ºF (180ºC) oven until golden, puffed and custard is set, 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Dust with icing sugar.Serves 8

I thought the pudding was great , Grandsons not so much.

Hi, Rosemary, What do those grandsons know about something that looks and sounds so good!? ha

We have hardly received snow again this winter. We have had a bit of rain here and there... The forecast for tomorrow afternoon could be a good deal of snow. I may be the only one that wants it! (No snowman - making going on around here). But the deal is, it has to stay off the roadways! ;-)

Mmmmm...bread pudding is delish!
Nice tracks. We saw so very many tracks on our last yurt trip but no actual animals.

BTW, I just posted that mitten pattern on my blog, at the end of the post.
