White Chocolate Bread Pudding
Bread pudding is considered the “apple pie” of South Louisiana. Because of heavy French influence, crusty French bread is available. Just milk and eggs, combined with leftover bread and the addition of white chocolate sweetens up this Southern dessert.

Ingredients:

  • 9 ounces Bakers white chocolate
  • 3 (10-inch) loaves French bread
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar

Preparation:
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Slice French bread into 1/2 -inch thick round croutons and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs and egg yolks.
Using a wire whisk, whip until well-blended and set aside.
In a large saucepan, combine whipping cream, milk and sugar.
Bring mixture to a low simmer then add white chocolate.
Using a wire whisk, stir until chocolate is completely melted.
Remove pot from heat and, stirring quickly, add whipped eggs to the cream mixture.
Blend thoroughly to keep eggs from scrambling.
In a 9″ x 13″ baking dish, place bread slices in 2 to 3 layers.
Pour 1/2 of the cream mixture over the bread, allowing it to soak up most of the mixture prior to adding the rest.
Using your fingertips, press the bread gently allowing the cream mixture to be absorbed evenly into the bread.
Pour remaining cream mixture over the bread and repeat process.
Cover dish with aluminum foil and allow to soak a minimum of 5 hours prior to baking.
Bake, covered, for approximately 1 hour then remove foil and bake 45 additional minutes or until top is golden brown.

This bread pudding is actually better if chilled in the refrigerator overnight, after baking, then cut into squares and heated in individual portions in the microwave.

You may wish to create a white chocolate sauce for topping the bread pudding by combining 8 ounces of melted white chocolate and 3 ounces of heavy whipping cream. This may be done in a double boiler or microwave.

Mickey Mouse Tie by Cervantes – Made in USA

Walt Disney Productions Made in USA 100% Qiana Nylon

Qiana: a silky nylon fiber developed in 1962 at the DuPont Experimental Station by Stanley Brooke Speck and introduced to the public by Dupont in 1968.
Qiana is described in US patent 3249591 as a polyamide fabric having improved resilience and silk-like hand, combined with superior wash-wear performance.

Walt Disney incorporated as Walt Disney Productions on December 16, 1929. Four companies were brought under the corporate name replacing Walt and Roy Disney’s partnership: Walt Disney Productions, Ltd.; Walt Disney Enterprises; Liled Realty & Investment Company, Ltd.; and Disney Film Recording Company, Ltd. The company retained the name for more than 50 years until it was renamed The Walt Disney Company in February, 1986.

NOTE: Items marked Walt Disney Productions (WDP) are vintage and made before 1986. It’s a great way to date Disney souvenirs.

“It’s A Small World After All”

“It’s A Small World After All”

Robert B. Sherman RIP December 19, 1925 – March 6, 2012
Richard M. Sherman Born June 12, 1928 –

49256003_10157298896371264_5480780897110196224_n

The Sherman Brothers were responsible for more motion picture musical song scores than any other songwriting team in film history!

The Sherman Brothers began writing songs together on a challenge from their songwriter father, Al Sherman. In 1958, Al Sherman founded the music publishing company, Music World Corporation, and later worked with Disney’s BMI publishing arm, Wonderland Music Company. Also in 1958, the Sherman Brothers had their first Top Ten hit with “Tall Paul”, sung by Annette Funicello. And then Walt Disney hired the Sherman Brothers as Staff Songwriters for Walt Disney Studios. They worked directly for Walt Disney until his death in 1966.

Disneyland USA

In the 60’s, while working for Walt Disney, the Sherman Brothers wrote two songs for the Disney Pavilions at the 1964 New York World’s Fair: “Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” for the GE’s “Carousel of Progress” and “It’s a Small World” for Bank of America.

FROM A POST BY JEFFREY SHERMAN (Robert Sherman’s son):

As I’ve posted before, Dad and Dick wrote Small World while the Cuban Missile Crisis was going on. If you listen to the lyrics, it’s the Sherman Brothers reminding us all that…

It’s a world of laughter, a world of tears,
It’s a world of hopes and a world of fears,
There’s so much that we share that it’s time we’re aware
It’s a small world after all.
There is just one moon and one golden sun and a smile means friendship to everyone…
You know the rest.

Part of Dad’s great inspiration for this song was Martin Luther King. Dad thought he was magnificent and was surely influenced by MLK’s speeches and wisdom.
Because of his closeness with the Sherman Brothers and to thank them for writing these iconic songs, Walt flew my mom and dad and Dick and his wife out to New York on his private plane.
While they were there, Dad and Mom were driven on a golf cart through the yet-to-be opened fairgrounds. Dad spotted Martin Luther walking through the park and tapped his driver to abruptly stop.
To mom’s horror, Dad leapt out of the golf cart, limped with his cane (he was shot in the knee while a US GI in Germany WWII) as fast as he could to go over and shake the hand of the great man he so admired. Dad was like that.
As he approached Dr. King, out of nowhere, according to my mom, a team of huge bodyguards merged on this apparently crazy man with a stick who looked to be assaulting the great civil rights leader. Mom jumped off the golf cart and shouted, “It’s okay! He’s a songwriter!”
Dad was restrained a moment, till the truth came out. Shaking Dr. King’s hand was one of Dad’s most cherished memories.
At 19, my father, you see, had been the first US GI in to liberate Dachau prison camp. He was also the only Jew in this squad. Dad saw firsthand what prejudice and bigotry wielded and for the rest of his life devoted himself to righting that wrong, and other darkness through his uplifting creativity. “To bring happiness to people.”
This weekend, as we honor and remember the great Dr. Martin Luther King, I feel his message, and the Sherman Brothers words are more pertinent than ever before in this country.

“I have a dream…”

“There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone…”
We should build bridges, not walls. We should welcome not repel. We are all humans who can help each other and coexist on this planet. There’s no reason for hate.
Smile at a stranger this weekend. Lend a hand where you can. Be kind. Forgive.
And then we will heal. Then we find peace.
Have a lovely weekend.
Happy Birthday, Dr. King.

Jeffrey Sherman

The “It’s A Small World” original vinyl LP album with cover art by Mary Blair, was recorded near the site of the Watts riots. The Disneyland Boys Choir was actually the St Charles Borromeo Church Boy’s Choir from North Hollywood, California, conducted by Grammy-nominated Paul Salamunovich KCSG (RIP June 7, 1927 – April 3, 2014). They also performed on television in the Dinah Shore Chevy Special, The Lucy Show, and in films and on the soundtrack of The Godfather.

Happy Halloween! From Disneyland’s Grim Grinning Ghosts!

Happy Halloween!

“When hinges creak in doorless chambers
And strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls
Whenever candlelights flicker where the air is deathly still
That is the time when ghosts are present
Practicing their terror with ghoulish delight”

“Beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts!” Phineas, Ezra & Gus

Grim Grinning Ghosts: The Screaming Song
(composed by Buddy Baker, with lyrics written by X Atencio)
The Phantom 4 of 5 - Disney's Haunted Mansion

The Phantom 4 of 5 sing “Grim Grinning Ghosts” – Disney’s Haunted Mansion

When the crypt doors creak and the tombstones quake,
Spooks come out for a swinging wake!
Happy haunts materialize, and begin to vocalize.
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize!

Now don’t close your eyes and don’t try to hide,
For a silly spook may sit by your side.
Shrouded in a daft disguise, they pretend to terrorize.
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize!As the moon climbs high o’er the dead oak tree,
Spooks arrive for the midnight spree.
Creepy creeps with eerie eyes start to shriek and harmonize.
Grim Grinning Ghosts come out to socialize!

When you hear the knell of a requiem bell,
weird glows gleam where spirits dwell.
Restless bones etherealize, rise as spooks of every size!

“Beware of Hitchhiking Ghosts!” Phineas, Ezra & Gus

If you would like to join our jamboree
Theres a simple rule thats compulsory:
Mortals pay a token fee, rest in peace, the hauntings free,

So hurry back, we would like your company!

“Hurry back…Hurry back…
Be sure to bring your death certificate
If you decide to join us
Make final arrangements now
We’ve been…dying…to have you!”

Vintage Disney Storage Find #1: Walt Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty” 1970 Rerelease Movie Poster

It measures 3-1/2′ x 2-1/4′ (there’s a little damage at the bottom, a small torn corner, and it’s still partially wrapped in the original cellophane). Must be a sign that it’s time to finally have it framed!

Spring is a time of cleaning! I’ve been trying to get organized for about twenty five years. I’m definitely a “pack rat” in that I don’t like to throw stuff out, and I believe you never know what item might be important or valuable later. Not just in terms of having a monetary value, but in terms of the emotional connection an item has, or the dormant memory that an item triggers.

I don’t think I’m a hoarder, but it probably depends on someone else’s opinion. To manage my “STUFF” and to keep my day-to-day life relatively clutter free, I’ve maintained a storage space for years and years.

Storage! Three Past Lives in 300 Square Feet of  Rented Space

Storage! Three Past Lives Stored in Boxes in 300 Square Feet of Rented Space

I have three past lives stored away in boxes in about 300 square feet of rented space:

1. Things from before the Northridge earthquake of 1994, when I had everything stored in Northridge, and the facility was yellow tagged. I moved everything that was salvageable to North Hollywood. This stuff includes keepsakes from childhood through college, retro furniture, hand-me-down kitchen appliances, film/prop/set/art/lighting/costume supplies from my first years in Hollywood production and camping equipment/building material from the Renaissance Faire.

2. Things from my life after college in Los Angeles, including furniture, bar and glassware, kitchen and cookware, housewares, appliances, electronics, books, vinyl records, VHS tapes, cassette tapes, and assorted memorabilia and papers from my post-college, Hollywood production and management years, and a past married life long ago.

3. Things from this current life that are taking up space or need to be stored away out of sight. STUFF! There are real estate files, old talent management files, financial records and receipts, office supplies, file cabinets and office furniture, toys & games, collectibles, magazines, clothes and linen, old computer software and hardware, miscellaneous junk, and empty boxes waiting to be filled with more stuff.

Periodically, I will sell some of my stuff, but the collection always continues to grow! So, after 20 years at the facility in North Hollywood, because of circumstances beyond my control, I’m moving everything. I’ll be trashing some stuff, selling some stuff, and moving some stuff to other places.

Which brings us back to the “Sleeping Beauty” Movie Poster I found today between a large unframed mirror and a glass tabletop. I recently joined the Vintage Disneyland group on facebook and I’ve already found a couple of cool vintage pieces.

I’ll be posting stuff for sale soon. Check back here and on my facebook. And please let me know if you’re interested in buying anything that I’m selling! Thanks!

“That’s all you need in life, a little place for your stuff. That’s all your house is: a place to keep your stuff. If you didn’t have so much stuff, you wouldn’t need a house. You could just walk around all the time. A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. You can see that when you’re taking off in an airplane. You look down, you see everybody’s got a little pile of stuff. All the little piles of stuff. And when you leave your house, you gotta lock it up. Wouldn’t want somebody to come by and take some of your stuff. They always take the good stuff. They never bother with that crap you’re saving. All they want is the shiny stuff. That’s what your house is, a place to keep your stuff while you go out and get…more stuff! Sometimes you gotta move, gotta get a bigger house. Why? No room for your stuff anymore.” and “Nobody owns anything. When you die, it all stays here.” ~ George Carlin
