Hi. First of all, Lost. I'm not sure what to think. The ending was amazing but upsetting all at the same time. I'm still confused about some things but maybe it wouldn't be Lost if it didn't leave a few loose ends, even in the finale.
Normally I don't like to make something more than once. Baking is like an adventure and I like to keep myself moving along the terrain, not dwelling too long on any one thing, and certainly not backtracking.
This was one of the few Tuesdays with Dorie recipes that I was tempted to skip. I'm not a huge fan of bread puddings. They're usually too eggy and soggy. They remind me of a sponge cake that's been left out in the rain (isn't that from a song too?)
A few posts ago, I think it was near the end of April, I mentioned that it felt as though something was about to happen. It was an odd sort of feeling which I couldn't quite put a finger on, but it was similar to the way the atmosphere feels just before a heavy downpour or storm.
Are you tired of seeing these tiny tea cups in so many of my posts yet!? I hope not. They are perfect vessels for ice cream snaps. The only other alternatives to these little cups are large cereal bowls or various wine glasses. The former is bad because I have to eat subject after the photo shoot...because it melts, And summer is about to pounce on me like an angry, the-vacuum-cleaner-just-moved, cat-like force.
Did anyone else go through a Strawberry Shortcake doll phase as a child? No? What about My Little Pony? I used to force the dolls to ride the poor, pastel coloured equines. They also had tea parties with Transformers (I was a girly tomboy.)
My Cinco de Mayo may be spent serving on jury duty this year so I wanted to post about something light, tart, and sunny...just in case. I even have the Tuesdays with Dorie post all set to pop up at the stroke of midnight Tuesday morning.
