I took a day off from the office today. Spent the day with a good friend, starting with breakfast at the beach and another good movie. If you haven’t seen Last Vegas, it is hilarious. You don’t have to be “old” to see it. It is so funny. How can you go wrong with Morgan Freeman and Robert De Niro? Michael Douglas..welllll….eh, not so much. LOL. Anyway, it was my favorite kinda day…..coolish, overcast….I love it. We stopped a local bakery and had a slice of pumpkin loaf. I am not a fan of pumpkin, so I don’t really know why I even ordered this. It was “ok”. The only thing pumpkin that I like is MY punkin bread. I love this recipe and I only make it at this time of year. The aroma of cinnamon and ginger fills the house. It is delicious. It is moist, full of toasted walnuts and raisins….m-m-m-mm-mm-mmmm. I had to come home and bake a loaf. Ahhhhhhhhh….it smells so good in the house right now.
I also made some granola with almonds, oats, cranberries, honey and sunflower seeds. It’s yummy and pretty healthy too. Just a litle hint of sweetness from honey. Has a nice little crunch, crunch, crunch.
If you would like the recipe for either, let me know and I will post it. My recipe index is taking longer than I had hoped. But it’s coming….
