Went grocery shoppnig. Made strawberry-rhubarb jam (tastes good, and it looks like it's going to be a good consistency). Just about to put bread pudding (cinnamon, clove, honey) in the oven and watch some Stargate. I've already watched the pilot (there was nudity in the pilot!) and 3 (or 4) other episodes. After the bread pudding is done, I'll start the black bean soup (mostly following a recipe in my monastery soup cookbook). Then I'll bake some steelhead trout. Then eat dinner. Then host story reading. Then go to sleep and dream of pancakes.

I dunno. This one is organized by months. It's really nice.

Yep. I actually picked that one up used recently, so haven't had a chance to use it. but i loved Simply Heavenly, their first book, so I just trusted that the soup book would be fine.

If your bread pudding comes out nice, could you send me the recipe? 8)

It came out very well, and it's really easy to make. Many thanks to magid for showing me how easy bread pudding is to make.

For this, I ripped up 6 slices of bread and put it in a 9 x 9 glass baking dish. I broke 4 eaggs into a two-cup measuring cup and filled it the rest of the way with vanilla soy milk (you can use regular milk, if you like). Then added ground cinnamon and clove powder. Mixed that up (stir the eggs by themselves first, so that you can break up the yolks easily). Then poured it over the bread, making sure to cover the whole thing. Squish the bread down so that it all has a chance to soak up the liquid. Let it sit for a little while to absorb more of the liquid. Then drizzle honey (I used lots, mmmmmm) over the top, then put it in the oven at 375 for something like 45 minutes.

Yum yum yum. This is great for using up stale bread, and you can vary it endlessly. You can make savory bread puddings as well as sweet. It's pretty hard to go wrong with a bread pudding, although I have to say the one with raspberry jam and Frank's Red Hot Sauce was a bit odd :-)
