Apple Bread Pudding with Dark Brown Sugar Sauce-And A Virtual Baby Shower!


Yay! Another one of my foodie girls is having a baby!  (Secretly I really love making these banners.)

So Christina over at Strawberries for Supper is being blessed with another adorable little man in the home and we couldn’t be happier.  We don’t really need any excuse to have a virtual party but when it’s for one from our tight knit little group we may go a little overboard.

Apple Bread Pudding

I met Christina just over a year ago after I was told to check out her blog from another foodie friend.  Funny thing was the current blog post was about growing up in a little Simcoe County town of Barrie.  Hey I grew up in Barrie. I quickly reached out to her on Twitter mentioning I was from the same town.  We discovered we went to the same high school. Our virtual conversation went like this.

Christina: Now the real question. High school grad year? I’m class of 1997 (I did OAC)
Me:I think it was 95 so long ago. I’m 37.
Christina: You might know my sister then. M**** ******
Me: Totally! This is so crazy.
Christina: I just texted her. She remembers you too. ūüôā

Basically I went to school for several years with her sister and they actually lived around the corner from me.

What a small world.  What sucks though is discovering it now.  What fun times we could have had if I had only know her better ( We are two years apart with me being the older and wiser one and her being the younger and prettier lol) But since we can’t turn back time I can only relish in the fact that I know her now and having her as someone I can call a close friend totally rocks!

So please help me and my fellow foodie friends celebrate this amazing momma bear by wishing her well and enjoy the many delicious treats we made especially for her!
