This past weekend I was in Chicago for BlogHer Food. I will do a recap post later, but I had a really good time. I had never visited Chicago before, so it was nice to go touring with my husband when I wasn’t in the conference. I have been exhausted this week though and still haven’t caught up on the sleep I missed while we were in Chicago. First of all I don’t know if it is the same for you, but I never sleep as well if I am not in my own bed. The hotel bed was very nice and was comfortable, but it wasn’t my bed, so I didn’t sleep as well.
Also we completely forgot that there was a time change. It wasn’t a big time change, Chicago is one hour behind us here in Pennsylvania. However, my body was still getting used to the hour time change from daylight savings time the week before.
When we were deciding what we wanted to do in Chicago, we thought it would be great to go see a Second City show. The only thing was that I had a cocktail party until 9:00 p.m., so we wouldn’t be able to miss the 8:00 p.m. show. We talked about it and decided to get tickets for the 11:00 p.m. show. This is when we normally go to bed, so I knew it would be late for us, but I figured we would be able to handle it. Boy was I wrong, I just cannot stay up that late anymore. The show was at 11:00 p.m. central time, so 12:00 a.m. eastern time. The show was over at 12:30 a.m. and after the half hour cab ride back to the hotel we didn’t get to sleep until 1:30 a.m. central time or 2:30 a.m. eastern time. I then had to get up bright and early for the conference the next day.
Needless to say I couldn’t wait to relax and sleep this weekend. Since we tried to sleep in, I made a breakfast that was ready for the morning. A few weeks ago I made a Salted Caramel Pumpkin Bread Pudding that would be perfect for breakfast and will give me some sugar to perk me up too!
This Salted Caramel Pumpkin Bread Pudding is a delicious pumpkin bread pudding with a layer of salted caramel in the middle and on top. This would be perfect for breakfast or dessert on Thanksgiving day and is also great for breakfast or dessert anytime.
If you love bread pudding you will definitely love this pumpkin flavored version. It tastes really good with the salted caramel sauce on top and in the middle. My family loved this and I’m sure your family will enjoy it as well!
