Our rescue dog Benji and feral cat Ginger – love at first sight! And Bread and Butter Pudding!


Benji is our rescue dog – we have had him for about 6 months now – and he is beloved of the whole family. Ginger is a feral cat – or at least she was – now she and Benji are best of friends – almost look related don’t they with the same coloring?  So cute…
Benji LOVES going in the car – so we put a car cover into the back seat and off we go. We have learned not to feed him before so that there are no little accidents – and that way it works out very well.

And finally – a wonderful dessert for all times but especially holidays! Bread and Butter pudding. I had a loaf of Cinnamon Bread left so I used that – here it is in development. YUMMY!

Bread and Butter Pudding Little Farm Style ( A Favorite South African Recipe too)

  2. Fill up the casserole with layers. Sprinkle the top with currants
  3. Whisk the eggs well, add the sugar and the milk and combine well.
  4. Add slowly to the full casserole until it covers the mixture.
