Cinnamon Bread Pudding

Don't waste food!  Recycle!  

Make use of your stale breads by turning them into bread pudding.  Well, that is before the bread reached its expiration date and before molds start to grow on them.  I've known that coming.  You might be thinking, "why don't you just eat them before they become stale?" or "why buy what you cannot eat?"  You have a point there or two points actually.  They make sense and I do agree.  Everyone should abide by the law, "buy only food you can consume or eat all food you buy" .

Well, you see, my husband buys a bag of bread on a weekly basis then sometimes we won't be able to consume them before the expiration date because: 1. there are other food to eat in the house specially that I also bake bread and cook other food for snacks, etc.; 2. admit it, you also get tired of eating the same sandwich everyday, the same is true with us; and 3.  I have a moody appetite which most of the time includes "I don't like bread period".  

AND aside from buying bread I also bake breads.  I bake-experiment on breads and sometimes I come up with baked goods that are, let's just say, do not meet our liking.  So instead of throwing those rejects in the garbage can, I make pudding out of my experimental breads to make them more edible. 

To tell you the truth, my husband can finish this bread pudding  in just one sitting, all 8-inch squared of it.
