I wish I had some RIGHT NOW!

When I was very young,

My grandmother made tapioca pudding from scratch,

Never since have I found it that good,

I ate it all, every visit to her house…


In a pot she did it cook,

Then transferred it to little bowls,

I got the pot to lick out afterwards,

I was a mess with it in my hair,

All over my face, I didn’t have to with anyone else share…

Love that pudding too and make it often. So fillig and refreshing. Buy it out in a diner when you go they have it there and it is so good.

I believe as children Tapioca pudding carried a cure because when we were home sick Mom always made it for us, she always said eat this it will help you feel better and just the thoughts of it did the trick. Thank you for the memory Ed, hope you are feeling better.

Newfie hugs, Rose

Great memory stirring write my friend.

My childhood friend who introduced me to tapioca pudding told me that the lumps were frogs' eggs, but I liked it anyway. Thanks for the remembrance.

YUMMY, I L O V E tapioca, Karen can't STAND it. She doesn't like the lumps. To me, that's the best part!! LOL (Karen's over here, going YUCK and making a *nasty* face.)
