National Vanilla Custard Day | Vanilla Custard for One – The Foodie Patootie

National Vanilla Custard Day | Vanilla Custard for One

Well, hello there, everyone! It’s National Vanilla Custard Day!

I got enthusiastic over today because a) VANILLA, and b) an easy recipe! I never realized how easy custard was to make until I made chocolate custard. But of course, chocolate isn’t my favorite so vanilla custard ended up being way more in line with what I enjoy. I hope you enjoy it too. 🙂
