Exhausted! Long day at the gurdwara teaching and working on the Food Drive. But our grandson, Ethan, begged me to make “puffy bread” for dinner. How could I refuse? Both he and his twin brother worked to help with the food drive and (being grandma) didn’t want to disappoint. Actually they are not that hard to make.
