So, I guess I will keep this thread going by myself.
FYI, fellow pudding skin fans, leaving the pudding uncovered longer in order to harvest thicker skin does not work. It gets harder not thicker. Upon reflection, I should have surmised that.
Oh you want more tales of food excess? I've been eating 2 oranges every day because there was a sale. On the one hand, I feel great but on the other hand, I'm craving for other fruits. I bought avocadoes for the very same reason. And a huge box of Earl Grey tea (but tea doesn't go bad so I may have to strike this one out).
Drats, I want pudding now. Tapioca pudding. You have any?
