Chocolate puddin

My dad will not eat instant pudding. My husband was baffled by this, because he loves snack packs. I tried to explain that it is because real homemade, stovetop pudding is just so delicious you don't want anything else after you've had it. Although, I've eaten my occasional snack pack in desperation. However, it then occurred to me that maybe making my own pudding isn't as hard as I think. So, I used the internet and found this recipe...clearly this woman understands me (see "you can make it easily on a weeknight" and "the second step can be skipped if you are lazy"). Hence, the most delicious dark chocolate pudding on a Monday night!

I just wish my pictures were as pretty as the ones on smitten kitchen!

The Julia Child solution:


All of this was disorganized and hard to get to, but when renting, what can you do, you can't create more space...or can you? Vertical is always an option.

Oh Julia you've taught me well! I should also say that while Julia Child gave me the idea to hang pots from a peg board, my mother showed me how! And, my husband did all the hard work, aka building the frame, anchoring it to the wall, and making everything fit on the peg board! Thanks family!
