One of the things I learned from my mother was that you should never dispose of food. My mother had a gift to repurpose food and she could always make something tasty out of leftovers. One of the things she made was bread pudding.
I have such fond memories. Coming home from school, and there was this wonderful treat awaiting. Home-made bread pudding with a cup of delicious tea. I still remember entering my home to the the delicious smell of apple and cinnamon.
