Quick and Easy Vanilla Pudding

Hubby just had his wisdom teeth pulled out. I know! Poor hubby! I feel so bad that he is in a lot of pain. Well, we just went shopping for a few soft food items and I had let hubby pick out what he wanted to eat just for this occasion. Can we say bad mistake?! He picked out only four yogurts, a 1/2 dozen chocolate chip muffins, a few soups and Gatorade. That is all! The soup had chunks of veggies and meat in it and the tomato soup wasn't recommended for the first day because of the acid and spices in the soup. So being that I didn't want to leave hubby his first day after surgery, I looked in my pantry and fridge and decided to make vanilla pudding. Luckily we had everything to make it. This is a pretty basic recipe that you can alter to make chocolate or butterscotch pudding. It is so simple yet makes a pretty darn tasting pudding. Enjoy if you aren't on Medifast! : )

1/2 cup sugar

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until pudding thickens for about 5 to 10 minutes. Keep refrigerated.

Chocolate Pudding: Add 2 unsweetened chocolate squares

Butterscotch pudding: use 1/2 cup light brown sugar firmly packed and 1/4 cup sugar instead of 1/2 cup sugar
