Snow Day! Snow Day! We're having a snow day!
PLANS: Finish John Flanagan's The Burning Bridge. Sip hot tea. Work on "Immortal Memory" speech & toast for this Saturday night's Burns Supper. Sip hot tea. Play with dogs until fingers are frozen...which will require lashings of hot tea.
Happy Tuesday, everybody!
PLAN UPDATE: Share Karen's amazing Apple Bread recipe with the world before we lose the tattered, splattered piece of paper stuck on the refrigerator...
3 C. (plus 1 tsp.) whole wheat flour (stone ground, preferably)
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
2 C. sugar
1 C. oil
1 Tbsp. vanilla
2 C. diced apple
1/2 C. chopped nuts (pecans, preferably)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour (except reserved teaspoon), cinnamon, baking soda, salt, & baking powder together. Set aside. Beat eggs & add sugar & oil. Add vanilla and dry ingredients. Stir in apples. Mix nuts in reserved teaspoon of flour and add to batter. Bake in two greased loaf pans for about an hour at 350.
