July 4 recap, prayers answered
Thank you all for your prayers. In case you've forgotten, I asked you to pray for me because I was feeding a cast of thousands over the July 4 weekend. I also suggested you pray for those I was feeding. For newcomers to this column, if there are any, my cooking skills are pretty much nonexistent. Oldcomers to this column already know that.
Well, your prayers were answered – I managed to produce an edible pot of goulash and the dessert to end all desserts, cottage pudding. As I explained in previous columns (I'm sure you all remember; if you don't, that's okay. I'm in a forgiving mood), cottage pudding isn't a pudding at all but a rich, heavy cake with a divine buttery fudge sauce.
