The Many Reasons why Chocolate Pudding is Great

I don't make dessert for my family very often. When I was growing up, we almost never had dessert, so it's just not part of my routine. Plus, and I think most moms will agree that getting dinner on the table is enough of a challenge for me most nights. However, yesterday I decided to make some chocolate pudding (instant thank you very much) with Isabella for dessert. And over the course of the day I realized that we need to make pudding more often, and here's why.
  1. I love "cooking" with Isabella. She gets so excited and we have a great time. She loves to stir food. When did cooking quit being fun and become a chore???
  2.  
     
  3. Pudding is a great food for teaching babies how to use a spoon. Just plop the pudding on their trays and hand them a spoon. Since the pudding sticks to the spoon, it makes a great teaching food.
  4. Chocolate pudding tastes good and is sugar free, perfect dessert choice.
  5. Pudding gets all over the place. Just look a these sweet faces!


After dessert I had to wash their chair covers and hose off the chairs. It was well past time to give the chairs a good scrub so it was good timing.

 Last night's dinner was fun. We didn't really do anything drastically different, but we were all in a good mood and we really enjoyed ourselves. I think we need to have pudding more often. It's just the perfect dessert. Oh and did I mention that I hate chocolate and therefore I am not even a tiny bit tempted to eat it? See it is the perfect dessert

  3. I'll have to make vanilla since I hate vanilla and won't be tempted to eat it! The chocolate would probably be gone before the kids could get their hands on it though. lol

  4. What cute pictures! I love cooking with my peapod. She's very helpful and reminds me of myself standing on a stool in the kitchen with my own mom. :)
