It’s been another mostly rainy, gray day. So what to do? Bake. Ham and broccoli quiche for dinner tonight.
I’ve had a yearning for bran muffins since I had one on the Alaska Airlines flight to Detroit last month. With the rain keeping me inside and no football games of interest, I whipped up a dozen whole wheat, blueberry, walnut gems. That first one out of the oven was ever so yummy.
… include time to cook. Tonight we prepared halibut braised in butter with capers, roasted brussels sprouts with pecans and insalata caprese made with Yakima beefsteak tomatoes. Yumee! A good way to begin Fall.
This time of year we like to have some of my banana bread around for part of a quick breakfast or even an after-dinner dessert. So I whipped up two loaves this morning. I have been making this bread since about 1976 or so; it comes from a Sunset bread recipe book I got when living in Iowa City. It’s still one of my favorite breads.
It’s been a blustery fall day: occasional showers with gusty winds. A perfect day to cook. After getting a beef/vegetable stew into the crock pot I whipped up a batch of my favorite oatmeal-chocolate chip-coconut cookies. Yum!
