This is the time of year that as a stay at home mom I think I should probably go into a new profession. I’m weary and burnt out on “mothering”. No wonder the kids can’t wait for dad to get home. We are nearing the end of this marathon called summer and I’m limping to the finish line.
Where do I go to rejuvenate? The kitchen, of course. I’ve been baking pie, cookies and now a chocolate pudding tart. This tart crust was baked and kept frozen for a rainy (or especially loooong day). I wasn’t sure what I was going to make with it until this week. I decided to keep it simple with a chocolate pudding filling. I made the pudding recipe from Tyler Florence and then, after chilling it, mixed in some heavy whipping cream and a little coconut milk that had been slightly whipped. Poured it into the tart pan, topped with fine coconut and served it to some hungry little boys. And you know what? I’m ready for another day.
Stay strong moms and dads! School will start again soon and after a month or so, the longing for summer days will come again.
Happy Friday Everyone!
