Pineapple Pudding

Note: This recipe can be made the night before and kept in the refrigerator. Just pop it in the oven so that it is finished when you are ready to eat! I forgot to take a picture when I first made this, so this is a picture of leftovers. Not as pretty, but still as yummy!

Ingredients:
5 slices of bread, cubed (you may need more depending on the size of your casserole dish)
1/2 cup sweet butter, melted (regular butter or margarine is fine as well)
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. flour
8oz of crushed pineapple with juice

Directions:
Place cubed bread in well-greased casserole dish

Combine eggs and butter. In separate bowl mix sugar and flour, add to butter and egg mixture and add crushed pineapple and juices. Stir very well.

Pour mixture evenly over bread.

Bake at 375F for 30 minutes or until hot and buttery.

Granola Challenge - Number 1

Note: This has coconut in it! I like it! It's a miracle. I'm not usually a fan of coconut. If you aren't sure where to get sesame seeds, you can get them in the spice aisle (I hit up the dollar store), or the "international foods" aisle. I liked this recipe much better than the last one I posted. It wasn't too much, there are more textures (the sesame seeds and the coconut add a nice touch), and it clumped better. I'm still not satisfied, though. When I'm finished eating this batch, there will be more testing!

Ingredients
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup sliced (or chopped) almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup coconut
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried fruit
1/4 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup honey

Directions
1 Mix oats, nuts, & grains together. Coat with honey & oil.
2 Bake at 300° for 35 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes
3 Add fruit & stir to combine
