You know, the number of shrimp dishes you've seemingly made throughout this thread did make me pause and wonder if your name isn't secretly Bubba.
I am picky with raisins in that these days they must be Hunza golden raisins. Best raisins ever! I was getting some one day and laughed when another woman said they were the best ever. See, I'm not the only one who thinks so! My nephew adores them, too. They have such a great sweet-tart flavor. But seriously, tea-soaked raisins in saffron rice pudding is a pretty tasty version.
