I have a new shoe on today. It is an ankle bracelet.

So far, it seems to be the best. I can walk much better with it on. It will be the last thing I will wear, probably for one month. I think it will depend on me. I just need strength and stability.

Contrary to what some think, I did not break my big toe, but my left leg, just above the ankle.

I will be glad when I get back to Wal-Mart’s walking again. I really miss seeing all of the new friends that we have met there.

I am still waiting on all those recipes that some have promised me.

I have one more goodie for you and we will get down to serious business.

I didn’t know Louisiana had its own bread pudding. But hey, it must be Gooder’n Syrup because I have never met a french person that couldn’t cook. I think my mother-in-law could have made fried dirt taste good.

1/4 loaf of day old French Bread or 2 cups of day old dry bread
1/4 tsp of salt
1 tsp of vanilla
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 cup of white raisins
2 cups of hot water or milk
3 tbsp of butter or margarine

Pour the hot water or milk over bread and soak for five minutes. Add butter, baking powder, salt and raisins. Beat egg yolks with sugar and add to mixture. Pour into butter baking dish. Place dish into a pan of hot water. Bake on 350 for one hour. Serve with lemon sauce.
