1 loaf (16 ounces) challah (Jewish egg bread)
3 cups milk (2 percent)
1 cup heavy cream
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 tablespoons almond extract
3/4 cup sliced almonds
3/4 cup golden raisins
3/4 cup chopped dried apricots

1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup amaretto liqueur

Instructions

Tear bread into 1 inch pieces. Combine with milk and cream in a large bowl. Let stand while assembling other ingredients. Mix sugar, eggs and almond extract thoroughly. Add to bread mixture, making sure all the bread is coated. Add the almonds, raisins, and apricots. Spoon mixture into 9x13-inch baking pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 50 minutes or until firm. Cut into individual servings and spoon sauce over each. To make sauce, melt butter in covered microwave proof bowl.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
