The perfect saturday afternoon - baking and crosswords. Sometimes dry, stale leftovers are a good thing - like in this banana bread pudding I made up this afternoon! It's just stale chocolate chip banana bread, sliced bananas, and a bread pudding custard (milk, eggs, sugar and cinnamon). Who knew leftovers could be this luxurious?
Just look up some bread pudding recipes, and start experimenting with all sorts of fruit-bread combinations, maybe with some special appearances by nuts, chocolate or spices.
(Also, Wordplay is an excellent documentary, all about the NYT crossword).
