Steaming sweetly on the counter right this second:
A pie pan of this bread pudding with some nuts mixed in.
Pet Peeve: Because I have always hated burned raisins (these are okay, but a couple look a bit cinge-ed -) Next time I will try sprinkling the raisins into the pan before the bread, rather than on top. My bread floated a lot, because it was not the day-old sliced bread called for in the recipe, but huge chunks of week-old rustic walnut and raisin bread from The French Confection in Sandy Spring.
In the crock pot: more chili, this batch for tonight's magician's club meeting. (No, they don't have a secret handshake.)
