|Baked egg custard.|
My husband Dan loves egg custard, and now that he is suffering from Parkinson's and has little appetite this is one thing he will eat. Daughter Laura makes the most wonderful custard, and she usually keeps him supplied. Today though he is out, so I decided to make some. My first attempt.

My Mom used to make great egg custard, but she used individual custard cups, and she often made this for Dan when we visited her or when she was here. I should have gotten her recipe and technique. And of course, I could get Laura to show me how she makes such delicious custard.
