Coming into the kitchen after a hard day of conference calls and emailing, I was stopped short by a wonderful aroma of baking, a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla pod and there it was, fresh from the oven, bread pudding, perfect winter food.
Alas not a spoonful passed my lips.
Why was that, you may ask, is BB doing the will power diet? If only!!
One of Erica's friends has just had a baby and their group were taking turns in cooking meals for a few days. The pudding was our contribution. Now I'm all in favour of community spirit and helping one another, but I'm sure they wouldn't have missed that really nice crusty bit in the corner.
