The last time we went to some friend’s house for dinner, I was in charge of bringing dessert. I didn’t have time to make it ahead of time. I found the ingredients in my kitchen, packed it all – including the frying pan, and cooked this while we chatted at the kitchen counter. They still talk about this dessert.
