Sunday Quotes....Sunny...warmer

FRIENDS,
We are so thankful for friends, many of whom we've never met, but who share with us as if we'd seen each others' smiles. We've come to know each other online, and words from this community help us through each day. 
We hope you've enjoyed our month of Quotes and Max Coots thoughts on friendship, and his wonderful comparisons to gardens.
(see previous weeks quotes HERE )
Here's the last of the quotes, and to me the most important!
 
Let us give thanks for children who are our second planting, and though they grow like weeds,
and the wind too soon blows them away,
may they forgive us our cultivation
and fondly remember where their roots are.

Auntie's Orange Pudding....cloudy,windy,showers...60's

 This was my Great Aunt's recipe, she was a wonderful cook, I've mentioned her before remember what she said to me when I told her I was getting Married? You can find that post HERE :)

3/4 cup sugar
 
6 Tablespoons cornstarch
3 3/4 cups milk
3 egg yolks, beaten with some of milk
1 teaspoon orange extract OR 2 tsps. vanilla
1 large or 2 medium orange segments,
            membranes & pith removed

In medium dry saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch. Put over medium
heat and gradually stir in milk. Continue stirring until just starts
to thicken. Add little of hot milk slowly to egg yolks, then add yolks
to pan of milk and continue stirring. Bring to boil carefully while
stirring and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat, stir in extract and
cool, covered about 10 minutes. Carefully stir in oranges pieces and
refrigerate until serving time.  A variation that she used to make was
called Kiss Pudding. For that you omitted the oranges, and whipped the
egg whites until stiff, then folded 3 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
and put dollops on top of vanilla pudding. It was delicious, but that
was back in the day when no one told us not to eat RAW eggs!!!!!

FRIENDS,
We are so thankful for friends, many of whom we've never met, but who share with us as if we'd seen each others' smiles. We've come to know each other online, and words from this community help us through each day.


For the next few Sundays our quotes will be from Max Coots and
his thoughts on friendship, and his wonderful comparisons to gardens.

For those friends now gone, like gardens past that have been harvested,
but who fed us in their times that we might have life thereafter.
