What to do with leftover bread??? Make bread pudding, it’s easy to make and is yummy… It’s been a very busy week for me, Yesterday was the craziest.

Only thought I had in my mind was...

Cauliflower haters are going to fall for this, cauliflower lovers are going to make this over and over… When I came to know that my hubby dislikes cauliflower, the first thing that came out of my mouth was “Are you kidding me?”.
