  • Pleasant Hill Ramblings.jpg PLEASANT HILL RAMBLINGS: Uplands residents treated to ‘Caribbean Cruise’ meal

    Institutional food usually does not find favor with any ages from the youngest school child, to college dorm students, to elders in communal living.

Of course, it was a white chocolate bread pudding with rum sauce, which was “to die for.”
