Easy Homemade Lime Pudding

Easy Homemade Lime Pudding

This Sunday was a lazy day since it was raining cats and dogs. I had absolutely no idea of what to make for lunch and my family (including me) were starving. Everyone of us was craving for something, but none of us knew what it was. So, I opened the fridge and I saw that it was almost empty, apart of some leftover crushed cookies from my lime cheesecake, some milk, 3 sausages standing there alone… and… there were 2 limes standing there and trying to catch my attention (sounds dramatic huh ☺).

Well, I think, the limes got me inspired since not only I’ve cooked up a delicious lime pudding, but also prepared a Shepherd’s pie in no time (I’ll share this recipe later on my blog) and everyone was happy.
