      I thought I hadn’t been receiving emails so I came to Yahoo Groups–
      but I guess we’re just quiet!! I switched email addresses and
      thought that was the problem, but it’s just a slow day I guess.

      I made something out of my “What to cook when you think there’s
      nothign in the house to eat” cookbook (GREAT cookbook when your
      pantry is low or you’re home alone–dh is on travel right now) and
      it was pretty yum and cheap. I used the last scrape of jelly out of
      a jar and a square of baking chocolate that has been in my cabinet
      for YEARS forgotten . . .

      Strata

      2 slices bread
      1 Tbsp jelly
      raisins (optional)
      1 Tbsp chocolate (chips, grated chocolate, syrup, whatever)
      1 egg
      3/4 or 1 cup milk
      1 Tbsp sugar
      Vanilla

      Grease a small baking dish the size of a piece of bread. Put one
      slice of bread in dish. Dot or spread with jam, sprinkle with
      chocolate and raisins (if desired). Cover with additional slice of
      bread. In small bowl, combine egg, milk, vanilla and sugar. Pour
      over bread. Bake uncovered 30-35 min at 350 until brown on top and
      custard is firm.

      My book also had a recipe for cheese strata–same concept, except
      use a good melting cheese and put a little mustard on the top slice
      of bread, bottom side, and no sugar/vanilla in the milk mixture.

      It cooks up like a bread pudding, very filling.
