*A few tips:
Bread & butter pudding is nearly
impossible to ruin. If you aren't
quite sure you have enough buns,
you can reduce the volume of milk.
The liquid should come just to the
tops of the buns, not completely cover.
If it's still too soggy after 1 hour in
the oven, turn the heat down and leave
for another 15-20 minutes. Also, it
will set as it cools.
in harvest teach,
in winter enjoy.
~ William Blake
And enjoying winter I am.
The time of a quiet inbreath
between winter & spring.
When slush & daffodils mingle
together at the side of the roads,
and the hills dusted with snow
show the bite of winter,
while the valley floors hold
the green promise of spring.
And smilingly welcome me,
As they spring up fresh from
their winter beds,
Eager for company.
Their round white faces fair & clean
Are purer than frost or snow,
And I thank the hands,
tho' now unseen;
That planted them, long ago.
~ Nora McFarlane
