We made the trip out to Homestead Gardens on my birthday so I could bring back a new ornament for my already over loaded little tree. This year I brought back a glass plum pudding.
That might seem like an odd choice for some but I am a person who has their very own plum pudding mold and I'm not afraid to use it.
Before we even went ornament shopping I had already gathered up what I needed to make this year's pudding so when I saw the little glass pudding on display I knew it had to come home with me.
Not having a working oven, my holiday dessert choices are rather limited but puddings steam on top of the stove so it's a good thing I really, really like plum pudding.
It hissed and sizzled for four hours and made the house smell wonderful.
It popped right out of the mold to cool off. I'll give it a good soak with brandy and then pop it back into the mold until Christmas dinner when I get to light it on fire.
While the pudding was steaming I was mixing up some dough and cutting out some sugar cookies. After chilling them overnight I am going to see what happens if I stick them in the air fryer. Not having an oven doesn't bother me a bit for 51 weeks out of the year but this week it's really annoying. We're going back to battling Frigidaire for a replacement after New Year's. Maybe by next Christmas I'll have something that works-but I'm not hopeful.
