Easy recipe. Made it for dinner on Ash Wednesday. Didn't have the golden raisins but, regular raisins worked just as well.

This was definitely a fast and easy recipe utilizing things generally on hand. Although it was good, and we ate it, along with crusty sourdough bread, I don't think we would make it again. I think it definitely has to do with what flavors appeal to one's palate. This one just didn't pull ours enough to make it again. Thanks for a fast and easy supper!
