Busy, busy. I am helping a friend with his move from Tennessee farm to suburbia in Huntsville, Alabama. He has been in the hospital twice in the last month. So it is slow going. He has finally closed on the house deal and received his last truck load of belongings. Old college professor is 78.
Here at home I am trying to reorganize my kitchen and living room and it looks like a tornado in both rooms. It says “stop and finish this or I will explode”. I think it exploded.
Breakfast: Homemade bread with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. Coffee with creamer.
Snack: Oats in custard.
Lunch: Oats in custard
Supper: 2 ounces hamburger patty, fried onions, ½ thinly sliced bread. Soymilk.
Snack: Custard (see below), yogurt.
I stopped and tried this recipe. No quick dish. I forgot about heating the milk and never got the temp correct on the microwave. I finally finished it at 30% oven power after 20 minutes at lower powers. I aborted the bain marie and I finished without problems. See if you do any better. I would recommend add a few grains of salt. It lacked flavor. I used vanilla soy milk since I am trying to avoid dairy.

“Imitation Old Fashioned Baked Egg Custard
(Save our precious Oat Bran for something else)
125 ml FF milk (4 oz) (Half a cup)
You will need a cup and two dishes, a smallish one, shallow but deep enough to contain all the ingredients, (similar to a small pie plate or a small pyrex bowl) and a larger one to use as a bain marie in the microwave oven.
Beat egg, sweetener and vanilla together in the smaller dish
Microwave the milk in a cup just enough to make it warm (± 20 seconds)
Then slowly add the warm milk to the beaten egg mixture
Sprinkle a LITTLE cinnamon on top
Quarter fill the larger dish with very hot water
Very carefully place the smaller dish into the larger one (don’t burn yourself)
Microwave on Low for approx 10 minutes
It sets and tastes EXACTLY like Old Fashioned Baked Egg Custard! Comfort food de luxe.
If you can wait for it to cool down, eat it cold.
If you can’t wait for it to cool down, eat it warm.
Really quick, really easy, really does the trick!”
