Ostomy Memories of Pudding

Welcome to MeetAnOstoMate.org

HIGH ON THE LIST OF COMFORT FOODS must be that stuff we call PUDDING. When you think about it, a very bizarre and silly word, pudding, especially when you discover its derivation is the Latin word botellus, meaning sausage. Who knew? Yet how pleasant it is to spoon a bit of pudding into one’s mouth, with no chewing required, an important feature to someone with an ostomy. Pudding comes in many types and flavors, which adds immeasurably to its allure. My personal favorite happens to be a pudding that many people dislike: tapioca. All the negative commentary that I’ve heard about tapioca pudding relates to its texture and the little pearls that are in it, to my mind a baseless objection. A closely related pudding is rice pudding, featuring a similar flavor to tapioca. The one type of pudding that I make for myself is bread pudding, to which I add one of several kinds of pie fillings such as cherry, blueberry, apple, or lemon. As tasty as it is coming out of the oven, I like it even better once I’ve chilled it and spritzed some whipped cream on top. Banana pudding, naturally, is beloved by everyone. Of course, there’s always the commonly available vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch and the like. Finally, to add to the strangeness of the word PUDDING, I point to the old saying that “the proof is in the pudding.” Originally, as I understand the history, it came out of the novel Don Quixote by Cervantes as “the proof of the pudding is in the eating.” Over time, however, the bit about eating fell by the wayside, so that the maxim came to be applied to just about any subject… perhaps even sausages.
