But Dajon must pass a test before receiving the promotion he desires: protect the admiral’s unruly and headstrong daughters!

… on this cool and cloudy day. A furnace kind of day to be comfortable. Such a drastic change after the hot weather of a few days ago.
It’s the perfect day to bake. A nice bread pudding with lots of fruit will make a perfect lunch, and a few breakfasts.
I couldn’t wait for it to cool down enough to make a good looking slice. Raisins, cranberries, bananas, zucchini, and best of all, lots of chocolate chips. Yum. Along with bread, milk and eggs … you could say it’s a sandwich. Don’t you think?
