Chocolate Bread Pudding
We normally celebrate Valentine's Day with a simple dinner out somewhere, but I knew this time there wasn't enough money for that special dinner.
I wanted to do something special just to show him that I knew we were going to make it through this crisis and that I had faith in him as a provider. I knew he loved bread pudding so I asked a friend of mine if she had a good recipe for bread pudding. This is what she gave me.
I added the chocolate and voila!
