The traditional dirt pudding recipe with creative flare. EASY, creative, fun dessert with my spin for a fish fry.
The weather has snapped from mid 80° days to lows in the 50°s. Trying to manage with the cold temps, my TN2 is not happy. My face is feeling more painful, leaving me not wanting to do much but hide in my bed, wrapped in a blanket cacoon with a heating pad on my face.
I am so blessed to live in a neighborhood where my neighbors are some of my best friends. We hang out together on weekends, have parties, play games, and share lots of laughs. A couple holds an annual fish fry in the fall, and I want to pitch in like everyone else. I really haven’t felt up to making cookies lately. Last year for the fish fry, I made custom cookies including a fishing vest, bobbers, fish tails and a custom sign.
I began thinking of buying a store bought dessert and just getting by, but that’s not my creative soul. I pondered, “What goes with fish?” Fishing poles, lures, water, scales, boats….worms!!! Yes, worms!!!
Since it’s nearing Halloween and everyone knows I’m quirky, I put a spin on a simple dish that tastes great and is always a hit with adults and kids alike. I made dirt pudding, but customized it for this specific event.
