DESSERT FOR TWO................



Everynight the Boss asks the question..."Sue, what's for dessert"....after 38 years you run out of ideas....Plus this is just an aperitif before our midnight snack....But an all time favorite is Tapioca pudding with warm blueberry sauce.....So easy, so fast, so fattening! If you have ever made Jello brand Tapioca right out of the box, following their instructions you probably weren't too impressed. This is how I get one box of powder to look like the above picture....and yes, it tastes as good as it looks....
1 box of Jello Tapioca
2 cups of whole milk
1 egg white
sprinkle of nutmeg
1/2 pint of blueberries
2 tablespoons of sugar
a splash of lemon juice
Beat one egg white until it forms a meringue
cook the pudding according to the directions...
Fold the hot pudding into the egg white keeping the egg white in big "puffs"
Sprinkle with a little nutmeg and cool.....this can be served warm (really good) or cold from the fridge.
put the blueberries in a shallow saucepan with the lemon juice and the sugar. Cook on low heat until the berries pop and a sauce forms.....Pour over the pudding, serve with whipped cream.

p.s. For all of you who wonder how "Tiny" got to be the size he is........this should answer all your questions.....................

I think I can do this!! My all-time favorite comfort food is tapioca pudding. My grandmother always made it from scratch with the beaten egg white. I like the idea of this 'from scratch' part added to the box!!! Thanks, Sally

This recipe looks delicious! I love blueberries.

I can totally relate to the Campbells Scothch Broth soup a few posts down too! Did you also like Campbell's "Pepper Pot" soup? I can't believe I like tripe because of that soup...lol
